On a stormy day in February, we rolled into Rosses Point where the views towards oyster Island and beyond were limited due to the teeming rain and waterspray of the waves.
So, as it was lunchtime, we decided to head into the little cottage cafe located in Rosses Point.
It is a lovely renovated cottage in the village of Rosses point along the seafront, outside were the signs of early daffodils against the wall of the cottage.
It was busy enough inside and most of the 10 or so tables were taken up by customers.
A small Stanley stove on one side of the room was lit and the glow and heat from the burning woodlogs warmed us up straight away.
The menu is varied and will provide a good food selection for everyone's palate. There is also the daily specials which are displayed on a board behind the counter.
I went for the little cottage smokies, a little pot of naturally smoked Duncannon haddock with creme fraiche cherry tomato, spring onion, melted Dublin cheddar and dressed organic lea.s, all served with toasted brown bread. At €8, great value in our eyes.
Dolores went for the chicken flatbread, a large piece of homemade flatbread with spiced marinated chicken , dressed rocket, salad of red onion , lemon, chickpea and feta, all for €11.50 .
Other items you can find on the menu are sandwiches, an Irish chorizo & bean hot pot and little cottage sourdough bruchetta.
For drinks, we went for a latte and a pot of tea, all of which were piping hot which is great. I hate it when you get a luke warm coffee/latte , but at the little cottage cafe, they were perfectly served.
As for the food, I loved my little "hot" pot of haddock which was nicely accompanied by toasted brown bread.
Dolores loved her chicken too. To me, her dish looked on the dry side, but when i tasted it, I must admit I couldn't be more wrong. The salad of red onion and feta cheese made the chicken flatbread dish even tastier, and there was nothing to fault regarding any of the food or drinks.
With the total bill around €24 , we can highly recommend " the little cottage cafe"
