I went to this hidden gem in Galway at the weekend and was really impressed by both the food and the service. The place is very laid back, a real bohemian vibe to it. Upstairs has some very comfortable sofas, it would be very easy to spend the day relaxing there. We both went for savoury crepes, I had the... More

This is such a lovely place serving seriously deliciously buttery crepes, it might be French based but it has all the charm of Ireland! The service was great, very fast and friendly staff. Definitely worth popping in!

These crêpes are just great and reasonably priced. Try the daily meal deal, a most enjoyable crepe with a delicious dessert and a glass of good cider. The rhubarb crumble also hits the spot. Not Irish, but tres bon!. This defiantly hits the spot.

We were desperate for some late night food and the pubs were packed and had stopped serving anyway. We happened upon this gem and were pleasantly surprised by the food and the service. Beautiful, very large crepes, soup and salad and a glass of French wine and cider.

Very cosy interior with lots of soft furnishings upstairs which make for a great place to curl up with a novel. The coffee is amazing, as are the sweet crepes.

Java's came recommended by another guest at a B&B we met earlier in our trip - they said to definitely check it out when in Galway. Looking for an easy dinner on our first night, we stopped in at Java's. We were warmly greeted and seated. It was difficult picking which crepe to order! My wife and I both went... More

Great café, they do the French setting very well and effectively. If you have time, upstairs is a lot nicer and quieter than their downstairs space. Very cool lamp hanging over the stairs. Couldn't be put anywhere else!
