Poached eggs please!!!

I took my friend there and we had 1 portion of poached egg with salmon, that was sufficient enough for us 2. And - very tasty! Also a baby boy that was there with us was treated with respect and attention. Lovely morning there, no hassle and delicious.

If you are looking for a place to eat at lunchtime in Athlone, can I recommend Loaves and Fishes. We had a delightful meal this week.

Food here is always very tasty, everything just tastes nicer than usual! Great selection of food and a nice spacious cafe. Staff are very nice. Although on one occasion myself and my daughter were not noticed in the lunchtime rush for about 35 minutes, however staff were very friendly and apologetic and food made up for it!

Thank you for your positive review, and delighted you enjoy the Food. Lunch time can be a little tricky at times, we however must apologise for the delay in your lunch, as 35 minutes is way to long. The policy of the Café is cook to order, which can prove difficult on days when it fills at once, and particular... More
