“very good :)”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

We stopped by for a fine pot of Assam tea and a piece of coffee and walnut cake. Classic tea room surroundings set off one of the best cups of tea that I have had.

“Great afternoon tea/coffee and snacks”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

Such a cute place...every touch with each piece of decor made this place the special place it is. Coffee and tea both excellent with a wide variety of tea options. Food is also great. We tried the veggie platter and the meat platter on the second day...great for sharing and delicious. The chicken pesto sandwich was so fresh, with warm crisp bread.

Staff also very attentive and helpful.

This is a great place to meet with friends and chat...or take a book and read over a cup of tea.

“Very girly, but boys will love it too!”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

We recently had a family mini-holiday and came across this little place when we were looking for somewhere to have lunch. Not the most obvious venue you would pick for a hearty lunch - after all it screams tea, cakes and doilies - but it looked so dainty and inviting that we gave it a try.
I had the bacon, apple and walnut salad, which came with two thick slices of brown bread and which was delicious. Husband & children went for the soup and gourmet scone/sandwich option, which again was a winner. Prices are very competitive (EUR 8.95 for soup & sandwich). Proper tea and we all felt like Cinderella drinking from little china cups! Of course we couldn't leave without also sampling some cake, which like everything else was very tasty.

Staff was very friendly and never lost their patience - which must sometimes be hard in a place you couldn't swing a cat in.

Will definitely be back on my next visit to Galway!

“Loveliest tea”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

I had the loveliest tea here first in Kenmare then in Galway. I bought the strawberry jam and it was delicious. The food, staff, and decor were all wonderful.
