Great Breakfast in Athlone

This place was recommended to us by our hotel and it was delicious. We had a late start and we were looking for breakfast. Luckily, Poppy Fields serves breakfast all day long! The service is great, everyone is very kind, and the food was tasty as well. I had the porridge and my husband ordered the... read more

I came here with my father; luckily for us, we got here just before the lunchtime rush hour and we both ordered the steak ciabatta, which I'd had before - still amazing! The ciabatta itself was so light and fluffy, extremely fresh. The salad was also put together very well and I ate every bit! The food was exemplary and... More

Recently went here for lunch. The food was really tasty. It was very busy when I went but seems to be very popular with the locals.

Dropped in here for a snack last week and we had a lovely snack. I had tea and a fruit scone, butter & jam and my partner had a club sandwich and tea, all for €10.35. My scone was one of the nicest I ever had and only wished I had room for their cheese scones. This is a very... More

They do free babycinos for kids which is a great idea & this too adds to the charm. Was in for quick cuppa near closing time during week & was offered free newspaper on way out-another... More

We were staying at the Hodson Bay and decided to have lunch away from the hotel one of the days, luckily enough we came across Poppy Fields in the Town centre. On our first visit the staff were brilliant with our 2 girls and the food was delicious. The vegetable soup and brown bread was absolutely gorgeous, the ham and... More

Food is lovely, however, eating in here one day I over heard a manager speaking, or should I say 'barking' at one of the other waitresses, her manner was disgusting and I haven't come back here again. It is nice food, but I can't support a business who treat there staff so badly. Hopefully there has been a change in... More
