I had brunch here yesterday and it was lovely. The staff were friendly and there was a friendly atmosphere in the restaurant. My eggs were perfectly poached and the bacon was nice, if a tad salty for my taste. The freshly squeezed orange juice was really nice. I would certainly recommend this restaurant and would return.

I find it really hard to believe that this place has got so many good reviews! We decided to try here one afternoon it was not at all busy but our food took ages to come out, at least 20 minutes. When it finally came it was boring and tasteless, not good at all. Left us wishing we'd just gone to supermacs around the corner would have got better food for half the price! Honestly there are much better places to eat in Galway so don't waste your money here

We love going to Maxwell's as a family. The food is always fresh, delicious and ideally portioned. The staff are always kind, courteous and very obliging. As a youngish family the atmosphere is always child friendly and we really enjoy sitting in the circular booths too. The lunch special is fantastic value too! Can't wait to visit again :)

This cafe is on shop street easy to find and very nice inside. We sat in a really nice booth for 5-6 people. The waiter was really nice . Cold bottled water free. We all had the lunch special which was such good value. Soup . Roll. With coffee / tea and a chocolate pot all for €10 . The food was delicious and we really enjoyed the atmosphere. We could have sat there chatting all day !
The coffee was SO good . I really like good coffee.

Simple and very tasty food. The seafood chowder was just perfect. I also recommend the Galway Bay salmon and the goat cheese salad with roasted beetroot and nuts. Nice, clean and simple interior. Very friendly and helpfull staff. We paid 80 euro between 4 people. Good value.
