Just wanted a quick bite to eat on a Sunday and decided on Quilligan's. We have eaten here several times before so knew what to expect. The menu is vast from breakfasts to lunch and dinner. We had the Sunday lunch. 1 course £6.00 (extra £1.00 for the lamb), 2 courses £8 and 3 courses £10.00... read more

A great independent cafe, offering a wide variety of food on the menu. Very friendly staff, good prices and centrally located. Recommended by locals and well worth a visit

We have been to Quilligan's numerous times with various members of our extended family. It is 'Tardis'-like, having a small frontage (with Elvis and Marilyn Monroe in the window!) but an extensive interior. Located next to the Winter Gardens it is popular with locals and tourists alike. You are warmly greeted by staff who direct you to a table and... More

Enjoyed family lunch last weekend. Good choice, quick and friendly service and excellent value for money. Food to suit many choices and good home cooking. Good bang for your buck!

Seen Quilligan's many times, and always thought it was just a small café, how wrong was I! Lots of room downstairs once you get in, and so much more than a café! Huge menu with tons of choice, we opted for breakfast and a much needed pot of tea! Lovely, polite service and excellent freshly made food! So glad we... More

From the front you would never realize how big this place is... and it needs to be. Very good food, very good prices and very good service. In the heart of the main shopping area you would not find a better place. Will definitely return.

Popped into Quilligan's café bar for a bite to eat yesterday and was pleasantly surprised at just how nice this place was. The atmosphere was buzzing and there was a nice feel to this place. The staff were pleasant and efficient. The menu was varied. We ordered soup and a sandwich reasonably priced at £5.95. When it came, the soup... More

I'm not a regular to Blackpool. Indeed, this was my first visit in over 20years! However, my friend had stumbled upon Quilligan's on a more recent visit, and suggested we visit during our weekend there. Look for Marilyn Monroe & Elvis Presley and you've found it!! Don't let the small frontage put you off, as the building opens out at... More
