I just wanted to write this note to let Clare Island visitors know that the cafe was closed in the summer of 2016 and I am not sure when it will re-open. The hostel manager told us it was closed. The location of the cafe is perfect-just when you are getting tired on the walk to the lighthouse and I... More

Really nice setting for a cuppa and a snack. Very welcoming and laid back. It a lovely treat went out walking and trekking the island on the way to the lighthouse.

My family enjoy lunch here frequently during the summer months. The soup and paninis are delicious, followed by the famous chocolate cake with coffee or the Sweedish waffle and tea. Soooooo good!! The only difficulty is choosing one! A gem!

A wonderful coffee shop that serves up some fantastic scones with a chocolate cake to die for not to mention some amazing home made soup. Also with a beautiful outside seating area. Do stop by if you are on Clare Island.

We stopped at Anna's while walking back from the lighthouse. We had lovely weather so enjoyed our delicious cake and coffee on the veranda outside. The café looks lovely on the inside too, I could see myself drinking coffee on a rainy day and perusing some of the books Anna has available on her bookshelf. According to my boyfriend the... More

Very friendly and accommodating. My friends and I were cycling around the island and called up for a break. The lovely lady informed us that they were closed, but still offered to make us tea and coffee...and then said they wouldn't charge us!! But of course we paid. Could not recommend more. And they also have a lovely dog who... More

Anna's Coffee Shop is more than a coffee shop. You can get light lunches - paninis. soup etc and teas, coffee and lovely chocolate cake or waffles to mention a few. It is a friendly spot without being OTT. You can sit outside or inside and can take a book down from the shelf for a browse... and there is... More

I visited here on a beatiful sunny day and got to relax outside while eating the best chocolate cake I have ever tasted. Anna was such a great host and the coffee was top notch also. I cannot recommend this cafe highly enough for anybody visiting the island. A hidden gem that you should definitely visit!
