The Cost: €6.75 for filled jacket potato with side salad (€4.95) and soft drink.
The Look: This is something of a secret treasure: a quiet and spacious upstairs café with lots of tables and comfy leather chairs hidden above a bustling tourism centre below.
The Goods: Standard range of sandwiches and salads, with a range of hot specials including cottage pie and salad (€5.95) and 12in pizza (€8.95 -- great-value lunch for two) and gourmet sandwiches starting at €4.95.
The Bad: The only minor quibble is that the potato is decidedly lukewarm.
The Result: Any toppings desired are included in the bargain price for the baked potato and the accompanying salad is creative rather than just iceberg lettuce shavings. And it is all served up by quite possibly the sweetest staff ever encountered. We'd return for them alone.
The Grade: B+
