Had the best French toast ever here last week. My mother asked if they would be able to do them gluten free and they were so accommodating towards our allergies. So tasty, will definitely be back for more! Loved the interior in the cafe too....More

I live just up the street and love The Kitchen for weekend brunch or lunch! The Shakshuka and Middle-Eastern Mezze are highlights!

Situated in the Galway museum, the kitchen is a great place to break for lunch. Each day they serve a different dhal and also vary the more traditional sandwiches. Sample the juices, freshly made
