“Grand?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2011

We were in Galway 2 weeks ago for a trip and wanted a quick lunch somewhere. Liked the design,enterieur of this place so gave them a chance. Sorry to say but service is extremely slow and they seem to have no clue what they should do. Must say the guy served Us was polite and friendly at least. Food was a disgrace. Caesar salad with rashers left from breakfast, damp croutons , wet salad etc.. Soup served but no bread.
It`s still a good place if You only want to drink coffee.

“Not great.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2011 via mobile

Have given this cafe numerous chances. Food takes forever even in a empty restaurant and they have messed up my order nearly every time I have been there!! Service isn't the only problem, I find the food isn't very fresh and not of good quality.
Considering they copied the menu from the last cafe that was there, the customers are obviously going to order dishes expecting them to taste like before... Believe me, They don't!!

“Definitely worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2011

Great food and great prices with staff that go the extra mile to be nice to kids. This place is full every lunch time so you'd have to be early to get a spot between one and two.
