This cafe never disappoints and it is somewhere I love going to if I'm in Athlone for a quick tasty bite during the day. It is a small cafe so be warned you might have to wait for a table but this is just proof at the standard of the food. The staff are always so friendly and chatty. I... More

On a recent shopping trip to Athlone with my daughter we decided it was time to refuel, found the Poppy Fields, looked busy on a Saturday afternoon so figured must be good. Wasn't disappointed perfect for a quick bite to eat at reasonable price, good menu. In and out in less than an hour and ready to hit the shops... More

We had a fine meal here--service was quick and the employees were kind and efficient. I ordered the turkey on rye, which surprised me because I think of rye as dark bread but what I was served was a pita. Regardless, it tasted good--the slices of turkey were thick and juicy and I happen to like pitas. My husband got... More

Had breakfast here last Saturday. Tried French toast but it was so dry and tasteless, burnt in parts actually, not sure what it has been soaked in before it was cooked but it did but remotely resemble egg batter, very disappointed as I have read very good reviews.

Asked a lady on the street where we might go for a coffee and a bite to eat on Saturday last in Athlone. The suggestion of Poppyfields could not have been better. A very friendly relaxed place, full of locals. The food is excellent and Tara, one of the waitresses, was courteous and helpful. Really enjoyed it.
