We were delighted to come across this gorgeous bakery in Clifden. Not only do they serve delicious home made cakes/pastries, they also do a really good breakfast where you sit at the window and enjoy the view. They have a great selection of good tasty wholesome food which i will definitely be back to try!

I probably would have given the place only 3 stars had it not been for the delicious scones! Myself and my Dad came here one weekday afternoon during our stay in Galway, we had just been on a long walk in the Connemara National Park so needed something to refresh ourselves!
At first it was a bit confusing as there is also a takeaway part and the sit in part is self service. There was no real que and people were going back and forth with plates skipping others waiting.

The service was okay, not particularly friendly although they were very busy. There were quite a few dirty tables aswell.

We had two americnos and the aforementioned excellent scones. The coffee was okay, a bit weak for me and gone slightly cold by the time we had paid and sat down. However the scones were excellent, they were mixed berry, properly big fresh homemade ones. Delicious! They just came with little packs of jam though which was a bit of a let down. They were lovely and light, so tasty and deserved some nicer homemade jam to go with them...

Excellent friendly efficient local bakery with sandwiches and cakes to eat in and take away. Every decent tourist town has a focal cafe which delivers good quality quick food at a reasonable price, and this is the one for Clifden.
