Our group of 6 came into Jim's Coffee House through the recommendation of the Ilnacullan (Garish Island) Ferry Captain. The proprieter was very gracious and the food was excellent. The quiche entree was generous and the side salad choices were extensive and flavorful. Others had soup & sandwiches which were also enjoyed. It was a sunny day and the patio seating was very inviting. There are also several spacious in suite rooms to let which had magnificent views of the bay. If we had known about this place prior to booking our night's stay, we would have stayed there.

If the front of the building appears unassuming with not much parking, go around to the back for ample parking space and nice views.The pleasant lady (owner?) served us a good-sized pot of tea and delicious cakes.

Don't be fooled by the vacant front as there is a lot of car parking around the back which is where most people seem to park. It also looks quite small from the front but stretches a long way back with an outside seating area. We tried this place twice for drinks and twice for take away sandwiches (not advertised) which were made to order using fresh soft bread and generously filled with our chosen fillings (approx. 6 euros each). The quiches and cakes on display also looked tasty. Would recommend this as a place to visit - it's way better than any other such establishment locally.

On 2 pleasant afternoons my wife and I stopped over at Jim's Coffe House.
The weather being important, as we had our dog, which is not allowed inside the restaurant, with us.
This is far from being a disadvantage, though, as sitting in the excellent furniture on the terrace at the back of the house gives you an excellent, panoramic view of Glengarriff Harbour & Bantry Bay.
Naturally, smokers may here endulge as well. I - for sure - enjoyed afte my meal my cigar especially.
The food - on one occasion excellent, home-ade burgers with chips and all the trimmings; the next time very pleasing cakes with aromatic bean-to-cup coffees - was excellent, the house-wines pleasing.
If you eat lunches, if you have a sweet tooth, if you want a view on a grand day - Jim's Coffee House is the place to go to in Glengarriff and so we do!
