In a lovely corner building with large windows overlooking the quays (and with parking opposite), the consistently high quality of food and wine offered at Frank and Bernadette Treyvaud’s delicatessen and wine shop keeps ‘em coming back for more.

Well known in hospitality circles – Frank’s brothers run the excellent Treyvauds Restaurant in Killarney, and his own long experience in the industry includes several years as manager of nearby Bodega in Waterford - Frank and Bernadette have a keen eye for quality and a commitment to stocking Irish artisan products along with other carefully selected (mainly continental) speciality products and wines.

Full of character and jam-packed with good things, first-time visitors may be torn between the deli counter, wine shop and café.

The day starts early, serving breakfasts from 8am, so maybe the thing is to settle in to a steaming cup of speciality coffee and a bowl of Paddy’s O’Granola (or something equally delicious from the menu) and contemplate the temptations around you.

Speciality sandwiches are served on locally baked bread or the famous Waterford Blaa - a square yeast roll which is traditional to the area – and they have earned a particular following for their ‘cakes and sweet things’, especially the cupcakes, which draw fans from miles around.

Sweet-toothed customers will find plenty to tempt on shelves loaded with treats from famous Irish producers including Mary McEvoy’s "A Slice of Heaven" homemade cakes, Milleeven cakes and honey, Pandora Bell (sweets including lollipops, nougat, fudge etc), Wicklow Fine Foods (chocolates, waffles & sweets), and G's Jams from Abbeyleix.

But there’s plenty to please savoury tastes too including Janet's Country Fayre relishes and chutneys (winner of an Irish Food Writers’ Guild Award) and the unusual O'Donnell's handmade crisps from Tipperary. It’s a great place for foodie gifts and, whatever your taste, you’re unlikely to leave this friendly quality-led deli empty handed.

Seats 36 (outdoors, 8; private room, 10). Open Mon-Fri 9-5, Sat 10-5. Lunch from 11.30am-close. House wine about €5.50 per glass. Children welcome; wheelchair access (toilets & public areas); free broadband wifi. Closed Sun, Bank Hol Mon & 25 Dec. MasterCard, Visa. abbreviations
