I ended up visiting this Café for a performance by the Madra Rua performers of Irish music sing-along. Compose of singers, fiddlers, guitar, tin and whistle, and they performed Irish/Scottish songs like: Whiskey in the Jar, Tell Me Ma, Old Dungarven Oak, Galway Girl, Irish Rover and many more. I went for the experience and to say I once attended a live Irish/Scottish Celtic performance.
While there I found that they carried Choice Teas; and they had a stack of Choice Organic Celtic Breakfast teas; so I purchased a box as well as a box of Umpqua Oats (natural oat meals), I call it real oats. I also gave in to purchasing a cup of sweet Italian fountain soda with cream; I had a large cup. It was quite nice. It was a lovely evening.
I tend to not fit in, but this place I highly recommend for genuine folks with no pretense and elaborateness. It is a place for unpretentious folks who enjoy a real, solid and sedate bunch that at times may get rowdy.
