Really enjoyed a visit to Joe's Cafe recently. The perfect place for lunch after an energetic walk on the beach. Good good. Very pleasant staff and nice buzz.

Great for a post -surfing brunch! Nice atmosphere, if a little crowded, friendly and helpful service, good food.

My girlfriend and I decided to try out here on our visit to Lahinch on TripAdvisor recommendation and it didn't disappoint. Absolutely loved this place with a great atmosphere and friendly, relaxed staff. Place was buzzing and was nice to see that it was so popular as the waitress recognised regulars too. The menu is extensive and had anything we... More

I really liked this place, the food was lovely and the staff are really nice and friendly! Only one downfall i'm afraid; no baby changing facilities that's always a turn off for me as I have 3 kids

Decided to try Joe's cafe for an evening Coffee and Brownie with my fiancé from California. The cafe is very homely with a nice friendly atmosphere. Our Barista's name was Kaia and service was nothing short of excellent. She gave her time to everyone. "The Most Amazing Brownie" was made in-house and baked to perfection. The combination with a really... More

My girlfriend and I ended up in Joe's on a recent escape from the daily city life. She had gone to Lahinch often with her family. I had never been and spotted this quaint little café sitting a stone's throw away from the beach. We ate, laughed, spoke to pretty much everyone who came in along with the staff who... More

Just wanted a couple of "hot" hot chocolates to take away and this seemed too much to ask in Joe's. The lady who served was unfriendly and her solution was to add hot water to the drinks which was not good enough. What we ended up with was a couple of Luke warm watery drinks......horrible. Last time we will visit... More

A Sunday in September saw queues outside this restaurant. It moved fast though and we were seated within ten minutes. There is a friendly laid back atmosphere and quirky, colourful decor. Portions are generous and the menu offers lots of choice. The burger and chunky chips are tasty and very filling. The brownie for dessert is as good as they... More

We heard that Lahinch was a quaint Victorian seaside town, which it is though it's maybe not as large or Victorian as I'd been envisioning. Still, a sweet little town with this great place to eat. We just stumbled upon it. Lucky for us, it was September and some of the restaurants near the water were closed and just didn't... More
