Very Eclectic Place

From the outside, you may not know what you are getting here. But, go inside. I guarantee that every adult in your group will find something they like. We were there at an off time during the off season, so it's easy for staff to give relaxed, friendly service. But, that doesn't change the fact... read more

This odd little shop with food and drink is a great stop while in Avalon. The beer selection is very nice. The soup was definitely made in house and the paninis were excellent. We had gelato as well and it was a sizable portion with nice flavor and texture. We'll definitely stop in again next trip.

My husband and I stopped in for dessert. They had a nice selection of desserts. We were pleased with our dessert choices. Would definitely come here again.

Four of us dropped in on Gallagher's midday. My adult son has a restricted diet, so we stopped in hoping to get some sushi for him. We ended up having a very good tray of Spanish tapas that were mostly authentic (manchego cheese, jambon, olives). We had a very friendly waiter who helped me select a wine (I'm not a... More

OK now this place should be ashamed for trying to look so fancy when they are serving old, hard and poor tasted chocolate croissants. I was a big fan of chocolate croissants until I came across this restaurant. It's a beautiful cafe that looks very inviting and fancy, so you would think that they would have the decency to serve...

First the blond lady was vet uninviting. One of the worst customer service I received on the island. Second, we wait almost 30 minutes for our order. I font even know why I waisted my time and money.

The gelato is excellent. The coffee is so-so. They have nice merchandise but they used to have a better selection and more interesting items.

My husband and I are very particular about our espresso drinks, preferring macchiato so that we have a pure espresso taste with just a hint of steamed milk foam. This place makes it perfectly with very good quality espresso, although you certainly pay for it. Our visit was just for espresso and dessert, but they were both excellent. Their desserts... More
