Open Early

I wanted a quick coffee around Golden Island. Got thrown out from the shopping centre because of fire drill, which got me into really bad mood... Poppyseeds cafe was the only cafe around open as early as 9:40- and yes, it delivered quite nice latte

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

Poppyfields is my place of choice in Athlone for lunch (or breakfast). And also afternoon tea when it's a little quieter. I have tried almost everything on the menu by now and have never been disappointed. The chowder is to die for. The brie bacon and cranberry is unbeatable. The fresh made desserts are yummy. Long may it continue. 😊

Went to my favourite restaraunt today for lunch, brought our 3 kids who also love the place. I had the tandoori chicken wrap with salad, I asked for it to be drowned in salad dressing cos they do the best dressing in the world. My husband had a BBC panini which was delicious, my 10 yo son had his favourite... More

Always go for breakfast in Poppy Fields. Lovely hot breakfast, freshly cooked! Attentive, friendly service. Only con is that they are so busy and you sometimes have to wait for a seat BUT the wait is worth it :)

Love this place when shopping around town. It's a little hidden gem. Always busy but very accommodating. Lots of choose from on the menu and will normally do anything U ask for. The dessert are all home made and absolutely gorgeous particularly the gluten free brownies! Love this place will always recommend!
