O'Callaghan's is one of the best places around for coffee or lunch. Good service, excellent food. Pleasant staff. Unfortunately, they don't have sweetners instead of sugar - a problem in all to many places in Ireland, even in some of the best of them. Surprising, given how many diabetics there are out there these days.

We used to regularly visit here while passing through Mitchelstown.

The food was out of this world, absolutely beautiful and nowhere in the locality (to my knowledge) can be compared to it.

However, I was not keen on how the place is run. I know it is a cafe and not a restaurant as such so it's all about quick service but I still found it off putting. You enter and the menu is written overhead the counter. I always felt like under pressure to quickly give my order to the rude waiting staff and if I wasn't ready or stood back I felt like a bit of a nuisance.
The food generally arrived quickly but was always practically thrown on our table by the sour waiting staff. They have absolutely no manners at all and don't even make an attempt to be pleasant. I stopped going eventually as even though we loved the top class food it was just insulting to be treated in such an appalling way.

Myself and a fellow motorcyclist called in here for lunch. This is a great restaurant with a fine variety of fresh food prepared to order. I has a great salad and excellent desert for afters. It was well worth my while looking up tripadvisor for a recommendation! I will divert off the motorway for this venue in the future!
