Delightful!

A friend and I called in, mainly because of all the good things that are being said about Loaves & Fishes. We weren't that hungry but ordered a Grilled Pesto Chicken sandwich with tea. With no mention of sharing, it arrived on two plates and they'd do well to fit all on one plate (as per menu... read more

This is one little restaurant, almost off the beaten track, that I would frequent. You are treated like a member of their family, with super food served deliciously and promptly. Very inexpensive. If you are in Athlone, give it a call, you won't be disappointed.

Top class food at reasonable prices. The breakfast is best of its kind to be had - quality ingredients, well cooked and presented. The home made bread is first class quality. Highly recommended!!!

Had lunch on a Friday. 2 of us. Very nice paninis. Filling & very tasty. Coffee & tea each. Reasonably priced. Ambience is a bit "sterile".... would be wonderful if decor was a little warmer.

Have had breakfast here on a number of occasions and its great to get a breakfast just like mammy would cook for ya. Always a great welcome from the girls and very child friendly. I thought when loaves moved across the hall to the bigger unit it could have gone pear shaped but in fairness to mary and the gang... More

We were directed here by a nice local gentleman and were very glad to find this little gem. It's in a small courtyard area by a parking lot but well worth the search. We had breakfast here. Lovely strong big cups of coffee and a nicely prepared fresh breakfast. Their scones and lunch menu also looked very nice indeed.

Awesome food and service. Great menu. Wish I would have had room for dessert as all the desserts look good. If you are near by totally worth stopping.

This place hits all of the right notes! Great food, great price, friendly staff and great atmosphere! Me and my wife go here at least once a week and I'm yet to have a bad meal! Athlone is lucky to have an array of restaurants but for lunch this is the jewel in the Crown!

This is a very small place that you could pass by without even noticing. However when you do step inside you will be delighted you did. Their food is lovely. The portions are huge. I can't believe people go to the awful eateries in athlone shopping centre when they can eat here. I love finding places like this, places where... More
