Gem of a cafe

Delicious, freshly made baked and savoury produce, with locally sourced ingredients. All with a good cup of coffee, in a central location! Park for town centre, and enjoy!

Called in for lunch passing Castlebar. Well worth the slight diversion. Staff very helpful and friendly. Food is of excellent quality and well worth the few extra euro to get such great quality. Wiil be back and looking forward to checking out their sister restaurant also in the town. Highly recommend

I've visited cafe couple times and always got lovely food and nice treats to go. I saw previous reviews and I completely agree on food side, most of service is friendly however older woman who serves is ignorant and have weird attitude and that's why it's good, only good.

This place is fantastic, very different idea in terms of layout etc. The food is amazing and I love their coffee and desserts. There is one waitress though serving that has a terrible attitude and she is very ignorant and not very helpful, it's almost as though she begrudgingly serves you. She's a bit older then other staff members and... More

Gorgeous food - soup, brown bread, Mayo mezze, lemonade, chocolate pudding, Brack & butter pudding. You get what you pay for. Absolutely amazing for a country town in the west of Ireland.

After half day of shopping a coffee break was a must. I was looking for something cosy with good coffee when saw Rua. Coffee was great and I like takeway cups design :) I heard food is also delicious so I will come back during my next visit.

Went in here for a coffee on the way to the airport. Sat at a table and after a couple of minutes ordered two cappuccinos. The place was very busy and the two waitresses working their socks off. After ten minutes the coffee arrived and the waitress said "the coffee is on us, so sorry for your wait." We couldn't... More

This deli is in a good location& its central to the courthouse and on the opposite side of town to its sister Café Rua (which I love) this is ok for a coffee and a sandwich but its not as cosy of laid back as its sister the food is excellent and the deli is amazing

Was bloody hot today so I stopped in for a quick lunch to take away and stumbled upon this incredible salad - it was chicken with Thai noodles, some carrot salad and this DIVINE peanut salsa...coupled with a blood orange San Pellegrino and my afternoon was complete! Busy lunch spot but the line seemed to move quickly...would definitely stop in... More

The food here is really of excellent quality, but that is evident in the price. Everything is fresh and has that wholesome 'home made' feel to it - very good, very tasty, and you know the ingredients used are right. Everything I've had from here has been very good, but it's not cheap. Lovely for a 'nice' box of scones... More
