“Tasty food”
Reviewed July 26, 2014 via mobile

Stopped off for a quick lunch here, and the service and quality of food is very good. Reasonable value, not the cheapest, but about average. The calamari special was poor value at €8 for what turned out to be 3 rings, but it tasted good.

“Worth the cycle”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

Landed in Achill late on Monday afternoon after cycling a section of The Greenway feeling sore & sorry but it didn't take us long to get back to normal at The Village Bakery. We arrived late so some of the lunch options were gone (good sign) but staff were quick to suggest equally delicious alternatives. Really enjoyed the good coffee & well earned chocolate cake. Cafe was nicely decorated with lots of seating outside & the staff were full of chat about the best way to get the most out of a few days in this lovely part of the world.
Many thanks for the great food & tips will be back soon

“Tasty fresh food in friendly helpful atmosphere ”
Reviewed June 16, 2014 via mobile

Visited this cafe over the weekend, the food is freshly prepared and delicious. The staff are friendly and eager to help. You get the impression that they take great pride in what they do and that your visit is important to them. Nice place to park the bike and enjoy healthy food with the family. Don't miss it.

“Wow, great place for snack & meal!”
Reviewed May 17, 2014 via mobile

My wife stopped for lunch. Immedeatly struck by the wide variety of people, young, old, bicyclists, workers....when Corinna welcomed us w/ a large smile it was good. Food was great my smoked salmon bagle was excellent and the side salad robust and tasty. My wife's soup was an encellent pureed vegtable soup and wife is a soup connoisseur!
Meanwhile 'Mom' behind the counter sang and rocked to the sounds of classic rock? Also answered tourist questions w/ a smile!

“Greenway Cycle”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

We travelled on the Greenway cycle pathway from Westport to Achil. We arrived at the Village Bakery and did not get the impression of a small cafe in rural setting without effort. On the contrary this is a professionally run establishment by two young (I assume) owners who take pride in small details. The deocr and ambience is beautiful and fresh and the food exactly as needed after alongish cycle. Not fine dining but good and wholesome in a nice setting. Congratulations on a grwat effort and for taking pride in your little cafe which if it was in one of the bigger cities would compete very well. Achil locals and tourists alike are lucky to have this.
