staff testimonials:

I have only amazing things to say about my time working at “The Good Things Café”. I truly believe that I would not have been capable to develop into the professional person I am today without the training and experience I got from my time working under Carmel Somers and the Team at “The Good Things Café”.
— Joy Cosgrove

Good Things Café, with the aroma of bread baking and foods cooking, will be a loss to Durrus and our community of diners, but Carmel is destined for bigger and brighter things. I am very pleased to recommend Carmel: my employer, my friend, a great chef and business woman who shares her talents so generously with her staff, without reservation or hesitation.
— Richard Lanin

The Good Things Cafe isn’t just a business, it’s an institution that allows people to prosper & Carmel acts as a mentor to the staff to help them achieve their ambitions in all different careers.
