Very cute place. Right next to the tourist center. Cool outdoor area and cute little indoor spot for when it's rainy.

Me and my wife have visited this coffee bar recently. It has an awesome outdoor jungle setting and they have a great coffee blend as well. We had a delicious breakfast at this place too (tip: try the eggs and ham breakfast).

This cafe is very particular and if you are in Galway you must visit it but the staff isn't really lovely... anyway I'd like the coffee and brownies!

This was a great place for a quick breakfast stop before our tour. I had warm brown bread, yum. Hubby had the eggs and also yum. Great service and value.

A quirky little cafe, just off Eyre Square in Galway city centre. Good coffee and snacks in covered outdoor setting. Friendly and quick service.

It's a cute joint with comfortable outside seating. Alas, as was the case with most coffee places in Ireland, not just here, the coffee just wasn't good. The atmosphere made up for it.

This place is very galway, very unique and overall just great! Menu is limited but food was top notch. Interesting surroundings. Its quite small so if you had a crowd, youd need to make sure there was space. A little gem of a place!
