This little shop was an absolute highlight of our trip to Ireland. Tom is a delightful man who has great taste in food. We had his flourless chocolate cake and it was the best we have ever had. That includes 30 years of eating flourless cake! Tom was wonderful.

Visited this venue for a coffee and dessert recently. There was a good range of food available. I opted for a coffee and carrot cake which was delicious. The service was speedy and pleasant staff. Definitely worth a try.

As usual, we spent our summer holiday in Donegal, and as usual we called into Aroma for lunch. On three consecutive days.

Food arrived and it was nice but out meal was spoiled when the older man who was working there started roaring at a... More

We decided to pop in on the way to Donegal Town and due to the amount of parked cars we had to park at the side of the road leading up to the Craft Village. We thought there must be some kind of craft demonstration or conference, but there wasn't and I'd say the vast majority were here for lunch... More
