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

We popped in for a coffee before we went on a boat trip. The service was friendly and the food was lovely. I would highly recommend this restaurant to visitors from overseas.

Dining in Loaves and Fishes is a total sensory experience from start to finish. I met my friends for lunch after their Viking Boat up the Shannon. They were looking for something to warm them up, and got more than hot soup! From arrival to departure, the dining experience is warm, welcoming, delicious....Service is with a Smile and a warm...

The minestrone soup is fantastic, I love it with garlic bread. It's great value. The atmosphere is informal. The girls Maggie & Fiona are very helpful and Gerry the proprietor is very accommodating.
