Stopped off for a late lunch enroute to Galway last weekend. This is a very cosy cafe and the owners give this their all. We were served with a smile and our food (wrap and pannini) was delicous, fresh and really tasty!!! We were going to 'share' a dessert - so instead of having to have a spoon battle for... More

Staff of 2, always on the move, efficient, friendly, soup was the genuine article, panini very tasty. Coffee also great. Loo out the back, clean; other customers said they were delighted... More

On the way to Cliffs of Moher, came across this hidden café. After 3 weeks travelling was very happy to find good coffee at last! Also home-made cakes, very fresh and delicious. Park the car as soon as you turn the corner or you'll miss it. As we drove off I was wishing I'd bought another to takeaway.

Delicious quiche and cake in a cosy setting. Fresh and good value food, coffee was great also. Friendly welcome and some great banter with the locals.

Ive been here a few times and always wish I could go back the next day! Everything is made to order and all pastries made by the owner. Service with a smile & love the decor. As it is small is not so great for small kids or big groups but very nice solo, for couples or friends.

Visited Goats Lane in Clarinbridge, Galway a few times lately. Small and cosy little cafe and yet plenty of privacy if your wish as there is a little corner at the back and a small outdoor area. All food is freshly prepared and portions are generous. Try the goats cheese quiche; excellent. It is run by a couple who do... More
