Perfect spot for people watching

Sweet little place with lots of character, lovely servers, great scones and tea and coffee. Loved to sit at the window and watch the comings and goings in the square.

Lynch's has my favorite rock scones in Ireland. The best! They have a lovely lunch - soups are great.

A great place on a sunny day to sit and watch the people pass by in this charming town. There are big windows to sit inside. The sandwiches are fresh, and the pastries are great yo to about 4pm but then the selection is limited. Staff are willing and helpful, but management is aloof and mostly absent.

Lovely freshly baked pear tart(gluten free) with some hot tea on a chilly autumn day was just what the doctor ordered! The coffee shop was quaint, old world style but it didn't have any heat on today so it was a bit nippy! The selection of home baking was delicious. Service was very good, staff were very friendly. Lots to... More

Stopped in here on the way out of Listowel only to be greeted by two younger ladies who acted like I was an inconvenience to them. The latte's were bland at best and the customer service was even worse. The only redeeming quality was the chocolate baked bread.

Had a quick and simple lunch with the 4 of us. Can agree with most of the comments mentioned before. Slow with cleaning tables and orders. Also bit odd that food is not coming at the same time. So we ended up eating seperately.

The food is ok and the staff are friendly but tables needs to be kept a lot cleaner😕 I ordered extra wedges with my sandwich and they didn't arrive. Easy things to fix that could make a big difference.

When in Listowel this is one bakery that you should visit, lovely cakes, sandwiches, which they will make up as requested, and home made jams. Get very busy at lunch times. Can sit in or outside, or just take away to enjoy.
