“A Galway Delight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

Not a fan of busy noisy coffee shops so I have frequented this place regularly since it opened a year ago.
The calm & general ambience in this place ,even when it's at capacity is a testament to how the proprietor understands how everybody wants to escape the rat race every now & then .
The home made fresh food is top quality, prepared lovingly by chefs who really care . The chefs ( females ) come out of the kitchen & talk to the customers , looking for feedback .
The service is always delivered with a smile & the staff make an effort to get to know customers names .
I love this place & wish it every success. .

“Off the High road, quiet, wonderful cooking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

I stopped here yesterday to ditch the 'madness' of the High street on a sunny day, and was very glad I did. I had a truly wonderfully prepared and, most importantly, healthy, freshly-made, feta and spinach quiche and accompanying salad of varied field greens while sitting outside in one of the bamboo chairs in what remained of the summer sun. The interior was also charming and is clearly a tea room, but staffed by women who know how to cook more than tea and scones. You should have seen the glorious cakes and other evil goodies coming out of their tiny but efficient, clean kitchen (yes, I peeked) as well as the healthy lunch items. I would definitely go back, and if you live here and you're looking for fresh food and/or vegetarian cooking, this would be my choice for lunch.

“Excellent”

I have just visited this restaurant and had the most delicious vegetarian lasagne and salad. Compliments to the chef, I would highly recommend this location.
