4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

with a great variety of quick food on offer the Lunch Box Buncrana is ideal to stop for a quick cuppa or a sandwich, wrap . Centrally located on Buncranas new street the Lunch Box has abundant parking as it is adjacent to LIDL. Super Spot for lunch hot or Cold . Service is always great!

“The Lunch Box Rocks!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

If you happen to be in Buncrana, or nearby, and get a bit peckish, head for the Lunch Box. Its a Deli/Cafe/Newsagent on the junction of McCarter's Rd and Ardaravan Square. They do a wide range of foods but my favorite is their breakfast bap. The service is top notch and they make you feel very welcome, locals and tourists alike. I believe they do lovely homemade soups and scones, and I can honestly say that over the years, I have never heard anyone say a bad word about it. They have parking outside the door, and there is loads of space just across the road also. Try and avoid school lunch times, as it can get very busy with school children, but even then, the excellent staff will not have you waiting long. I even think you can phone in your order.

Do yourself a favour and treat yourself to their fine fare. You wont be disappointed!!!
