We had a morning coffee and later lunch here. The food and drink were excellent (especially the maltesers cake) and the service friendly and competent. Suspect we will be going back.

This restaurant is so lovely and the food is excellent. My family has gluten and dairy allergies, and they happily and kindly accommodated our needs. So nice to find this lovely place in Athenry, and we hope to return again.

The food is very nice, especially the fish, sallad and bread. Nice coffee and a lot of cakes for people who likes that. Damien and the rest of the staff are very friendly and helpful. The interior and the staff creates a warm comfortable feeling.

Visited with two vegetarians and had really terrific salads (falafel and one goats cheese). Lovely bottle of white wine. Super ambience, friendly service. Quite a surprise to find such quality in a country town.
