The take home coffee is identical to the sit in version, this further indicates to me the attention to detail that Staff & Joe & Linda model in their family friendly and unique dining concept in the epicentre of Athlone. Long may we be served by their combined duty of care to us regular customers. A National Award is well... More

Classy place for lunch, give yourself time to enjoy it. The menu offers quite interesting and varied choices, worth studying before deciding. It was my first experience and I had limited time. I want to go back again for some special occasion. Service is friendly but quite busy, so you need to be patient.

If you would like a leisurely lunch, in the middle of the day, with the same sort of menu as you might expect to have at an evening meal, then this is the place to eat in Athlone. My husband & I had lunch there on Valentine's Day, when there was a special menu on offer. We were greeted with... More

Third review. It's still super. Ate here with a friend on a weekend away. It's impossible to go anywhere else. The quality of food and service are super. As I said before if I lived closer I would eat here all the time. Cannot fault anything. Love the coffee refills too.

Have eaten here for lunch on two occasions now, the second time as a result of how delicious the first time was. Would have been three times but they are so popular at lunchtime that we couldn't get a table. Not a complaint just a great sign of a great restaurant!
