“only ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

Too expensive, 4 lunches came to 50 Euro, which consisted of a chicken wrap(light on chicken)
3 panini also very light in the meat dept.(baguettes) couple of small portions of not very nice chips and a small coffee and 3 fizzy drinks. The orders were a little mixed up, not the biggest issue.the lady behind the hot counter seemed a bit under pressure, overall not a very present visit do not think I will be coming back.

“Hungry then come to the GBC”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

It has no airs and graces but I have to say the food may be standard but is very tasty and satisfying. Would definitely go there again, its been years and I live in the city and its not expensive

“Microwave food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

We had breakfast at this coffeeshop while visiting Galway. We were starving and thought we couldn't go too wrong with coffeeshops.
The food is microwaved, or cooked early in the morning and then microwaved repeatedly all day. The coffee is basically black water. The bagels/breads were burnt.
Not recommended.

“Good Value and Excellent Discounts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Found GBC had excellent student discount and was quiet enough to have a chat over lunch. Food was delicious and at a reasonable price.
