Service was very friendly and prompt, and more importantly, my chai latte and almond chocolate croissant were among the best I've ever had.

Really chill cafe next to one of the bus stations in Galway. The coffee (soya latte) was really good and the artwork was really nice. Quick and friendly service. Nice outdoor with smoker AND non smoker spaces. If rain no problem, the terrace is under a roof for most of it. Don't hesitate, we had a nice time :)

This is my go to place before catching a bus or train out of Galway. Its so handy for the stations. Quirky, relaxing with a lovely vibe. Ever think of opening a branch in Dublin ?

We were looking for a cuppa and found this little gem. The service was friendly and quick. My son's hot chocolate came decorated with a smiley face and looked wonderful. The muffins were generous sizes and tasted great. We felt de-stressed and peaceful in the plant-filled outdoor area. Highly recommended.

We only found this place on our very last day in Galway. We needed to kill some time and decided to check out this cute little cafe. What a shame we hadn't found it earlier! Really excellent coffee, soya, almond and cow's milk which was great as one of us couldn't drink milk. We had flat white coffees and also... More

The place is really cozy, however the cheese bread (pão de queijo) is cold and does'n look like the real one. Hot chocolate is always cold. The marshmallows are good.

efficient and friendly service, lovely coffee, unusual place. The seating is more geared to winter customers but I was staying nearby and would have returned if I had not been leaving the next day. Besides coffee you can also get fresh made hot food at certain times of the day

I come here regularly as the coffee here is beyond beautiful. One of the best places in Galway. Great location if you're about to leave by bus and need a quick pick me up. Never had a bad experience. The staff is always welcoming, friendly and quick. Mike, the barista, always greets you with a big smile and if you're... More
