Travelling around Galway looking at the tourists sites of east Galway - most closed btw on a Sunday afternoon on St Patrick's weekend - and looking for a light lunch and snack - most had the seafood chowder with lovely homemade bread - definitely recommended a visit - dinner menu and food looked delicious too

I can highly recommend here. Their eggs benedict and superfood salad are the perfect for the healthier option. The salmon dinner, potato cakes and sweet potatoes chips are ideal for some comfort food. Service and value for money is top class. On a cold day a coffee by the stove is the perfect way to warm up.
