I came upon this cafe by chance while looking for a shelter from the rain. It serves freshly cooked dishes, mainly for breakfast and lunch from what I can see. I took advantage of a good deal - 10 euros for a main, three salads and a drink. The chicken and broccoli bake I had was delicious as was the rest of my meal. The staff were friendly and efficient. The decor is simple. There are a few tables with tall chairs and more seating/tables against the wall. An excellent choice for a light snack or a place to relax with a coffee.

Use this tidy little restaurant all the time and would highly recommend it. Great wholesome homemade dishes with plenty of variety and value for money. Ate there yesterday with a group of 5 and all thoroughly enjoyed it.

By far the best cafe in galway, great selection, very reasonable prices and friendly staff. Loads of healthy options and specials every day.
Great if in a rush or have the time to sit in and read the papers.

So i've been here a couple of times. COnsidering it markets as a vegetarian place and wholefoods i expected somewhere like cornacopia in dublin.
Everytime i pass this place there is someone smoking outside. and i mean everytime. its either a chef or a customer and it really makes the place look grotty. inside its big and lots of places to sit.
so i got a pannini recently. was happy to wait 5-10 mins as I like it hot.
got a panini that was cold in the middle, and didnt have onions which i'd asked for. considering they are charging 6.95 for this I was pretty mad. The panini was tiny and again was cold and not exactly what i ordered. I wont be going back there.
