This cafe is very particular and if you are in Galway you must visit it but the staff isn't really lovely... anyway I'd like the coffee and brownies!

This was a great place for a quick breakfast stop before our tour. I had warm brown bread, yum. Hubby had the eggs and also yum. Great service and value.

A quirky little cafe, just off Eyre Square in Galway city centre. Good coffee and snacks in covered outdoor setting. Friendly and quick service.

It's a cute joint with comfortable outside seating. Alas, as was the case with most coffee places in Ireland, not just here, the coffee just wasn't good. The atmosphere made up for it.

This place is very galway, very unique and overall just great! Menu is limited but food was top notch. Interesting surroundings. Its quite small so if you had a crowd, youd need to make sure there was space. A little gem of a place!

Great outdoor cafe, there's cover so it's nice to visit any time of year even in the rain. Friendly staff. Very close to the city centre, about 1 minute walk to eyre square.

I stumbled on this cafe totally by chance, and it reminded of my home in Asheville, North Carolina because of its funky setting, good menu and its patrons. Returned twice.
