Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Such a choice and unique little spot in Westport, always a delight sneaking in for a coffee and a look at the beautiful Photography when home visiting family... I love having the art displayed in my home, makes it feel more like home away from...home.More

Lovely little quick-stop! Yummy baked food items for the sweet tooth, good coffee (Alpro Coconut milk -for those for whom that matters) and lovely hand made, quality homewares and gifts. A really nice place for a quick re-fuel.

We dropped in here for our morning coffee fix and were tempted by the nice looking home made cakes and cookies; they tasted as good as they looked. The coffee however was a let down, very weak and under-flavoured, not enough body. Seemed to be...plenty of locals there so maybe the Westport coffee habit is different from ours?More
