Great place to find nice desserts and bread. The food is also good in a nice, modern and bright room.

Delicious desserts here - the chocolate praline mousse is divine. Great breakfast here too. I usually have the english muffins with poached eggs and relish The vegetarian selection could be better. I'm lactose intolerant vegetarian but any time I've eaten here I've found they've been really accommodating and changed things around for me:)

I always love going in here for extra special treats, Always excellent quality and service. There's a huge selection and attention to detail is on every product. All my family loves their food too, so I leave with a box every time.

After hearing great reviews of the restaurant, we went for dinner on Friday evening. My girlfriend is a vegetarian and was disappointed that only 2 main course options were for vegetarians with one of them being just a larger version of the antipasti from the starters. I understand you don't have a massive menu but extra choices would be welcome.... More

Actually I think their bakery is a lot nicer and they seen to have hired much nicer staff for the bakery. There was no atmosphere in the place and it was quite cold.

We went for lunch on Saturday - it was packed - always a good sign! We had lovely soup and sandwiches and my daughter had lamb tagine with cous cous. A steal at €5.50 off the kids menu. All the food was really high quality, tasty and good value.

Decided to give GTC another chance after a couple of disastrous visit's last year. It wasn't busy but the waitress seemed to have difficulty as to where she would put us even though a lot of tables were empty. Starters were good and enjoyed by all, mains were just okay. Only one of our party had dessert. Service was very... More

Thank you so much for this lovely review and for your positive comments on our value for money and the quality of our food and service. Its often not as easy as it appears to seat people.

On a wet windy Sunday we queued for brunch .... It was worth waiting for. The food was excellent and the atmosphere buzzing. We also tried out their other kitchens in Galway, all of which offered fresh quality food.
