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

I was glad to notice such an appealing café just across the main bus station in Galway. I was welcomed by a big friendly smile. The cappuccino was excellent, they had soya milk available ( I would appreciate not to be charged extra because I take soya instead of cow milk). The breakfast meal (porridge) was huge and tasty.

My husband and I thought Jungle Cafe was pretty cool the first time we walked past it. It was on the way to our hotel from the Eyre Square.

A nice outdoor cafe just off of Eyre Square making it real handy to get to when in the heart of Galway. Jungle Cafe offers a variety of unique foods and even had a all you can eat special which was great to take advantage of. The only downside to this slice of Jungle life so there is very little...

An oasis like this can really lift up your spirit. Very comfy and surprisingly looking, it also has a very nice menu, offering a variety of choices. I ordered a sandwich and a chai latte and both were delicious.

Went here recently for a coffee. It was a nice sunny day so I was looking for somewhere outdoors. Jungle Cafe is outdoors and serve great coffee. I like all the plants in there giving it the jungle appearance.

Outside tables are sheltered and comfy. We had the eggs & ham and salmon on a croissant. If I ran a cafe I would put both on the menu. The chai was both beautiful and tasty. Great service; worth leaving an American tip.
