Serving delicious homemade pasta and pizza for lunch with a wider selection for dinner, this deceptively traditional-looking cafe is an Irish haven. If you’re lucky, you’ll see the pasta being made just behind the counter, which is pretty much as fresh as it gets. Run by Celt Tony and his wife Momo, the restaurant also stocks a healthy supply of Irish whiskey to go with their sheep-adorned placemats. Whether you have it on the rocks or in an Irish coffee, you’ll find yourself moving from mains to desserts to after-dinner drinks before you know it. Vegetarian options are available and dishes can be adapted too.
