This Clifden hub is tucked away near the Station House Hotel. If you don't wander down that way, you will miss out on this great cafe/coffee experience. Their mini scones are exceptional any time of day. You can't beat their sandwiches and salads at lunch...More

Always when we are in Clifden we go to this Cafe. It is great authentic and is not a boring chain like S...cks. or others

We were at the Pony Show and our friends advised us to turn back just a little ways and grab a coffee at Steam. They were right!

I have been going down to connemara for 15 years and never have I found a cafe/restaurant that beats the steam in terms of food or staff friendliness. It is simply the best in the west

We received a warm welcome and had nice cappuccino and scones at Steam! The little terrace is really pleasant in a sunny day.

Clean. Great selection of treats and pastries as well as ice creams. Friendly efficient service and plenty of seating. Centrally located and most importantly, cracking coffee.✊️

Food (sandwiches) really nice composed in taste, few small imperfections such as too strong dressing on salad (too much vinegar for sure) also over beaten cheesecake but really good taste. Overall nice place to stop for a lunch and gorgeous coffee, lovely staff.

Thanks for review. We make up all soups sandwiches and dressings in house. Sorry Dressing was not to your taste but next time if you let us know while you are in the cafe we can try an alternative 👍
