Tuam's oldest cafe is just reopened as Olivia's Cafe & Bistro. The Cafe was fondly remembered in Tuam as Ryans Cafe and is now under new ownership. Olivia's Cafe & Bistro is just reopened after a complete renovation. It is a cosy relaxing place to be with a nice friendly atmosphere and good food sourced from local suppliers. The ground floor has all private booth seating ideal for families, a business meeting or a chat with friends. We serve Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Wine and a large selection of tasty desserts and icecream. We now open seven days due to customer feedback. Our Sunday Lunch is a real treat where you sit can relax with your friends and family with a Sunday roast dinner or a lite bite. We also cater for private parties, kids birthdays or business meetings in our private function room upstairs.
