Called in for breakfast and was lucky to have a sunny morning so sat outside. The cappuccino was excellent. The scrambled eggs, with tomato and feta, were devine. The flavour of the tomatoes were so reminiscent of holidays in Italy and France, that for one...lovely hour during this current Covid situation, I forgot about everything and felt like I was on that much longed for holiday! I can't wait to go back.More

Visited for lunch. The service was a little slow and prickly, however the food was of a good standard.

Once in a Litetime a town gets a place from which all others follow. This is the place, the food the same as it ever was - excellent.

A friend and I were in Galway for a couple days and I am so glad I stumbled upon this gem on Google maps as it’s in a more residential area where I would not have expected a cozy little cafe. The owner was friendly...and most importantly, an amazing chef. We greatly enjoyed our breakfasts and would love to visit again should we find ourselves in the area :)More

This is a small restaurant in the Claddagh area which I regard as a little gem. I've had lunch here a number of times in the past three months and I want to go again. The menu offers items that are a little different. I've...enjoyed smoked duck salad on a few occasions; dressings are lovely. For your tea, no teabags, so you are provided with little strainers! It is a rather tiny restaurant, so not a lot of space.More

We went there visiting Galway as it was in our way to the city from the hotel, and I must say it is very good. We are Spanish and the owner was very kind to us, and makes great coffee and sandwiches. Thank you for...you kindness again. Much appreciated!!!More

Everytime we visit Galway we go to Antons. Our favourite cafe in Ireland. The breakfast and brunch are the best in Galway. The scones and brown bread are the best in Ireland. Beautiful coffee and pastries. An absolute must visit when visiting Galway!

While in Galway we found a small cafe in the neighborhood that was a gem! The breakfast menu wasn’t extensive but had enough variety to provide options for different palates. I had melt-in-your mouth French toast with bacon prepared to my liking—solid but not crispy....My husband enjoyed his pancakes with blueberry compote. We also stopped for a latte one morning and enjoyed the framed photos by Kevin O’Byrne of Galway posted around the cafe. Genuinely lovely staff!More
