Such a gorgeous little cafe, we got coffee water and cakes and omg they were homemade and delicious, the apple pie and carrot cake was particularly good. Service was fast. Only thing that was annoying was the amount of wasps trying to land on the...food but sure that's not the restaurants fault. Would love to go back.More

Visited here today for lunch following a recommendation from our guide. Wow! Not what you expect from a little tourist cafe, yes the kids sandwiches were sandwiches and as requested. One child had soup which was delicious both myself and my husband had the Aran...greek salad & goats cheese salad which were just stunning. By far the nicest salad I have ever had with walnuts, pomegranate seeds and a very tasty dressing. It was extremely busy but the staff were great and not at all flustered. Will definitely dine here on a future visit.More

The place was so busy and felt sorry for the staff. The organisation by the managment was terrible. The young staff themselves were friendly but the managment were abrupt. The food itself was lovely. The ingredients were fresh and tasty.

The food here is fresh and hand made. My smoked salmon salad with ice cold cider was just what was needed after the walk to the fort. Beautiful setting too.

This little place is such a gem on the island. Was nice to get into the warmth out of the winds. There were santization stations everywhere and staff were wearing PPE. Food was lovely and service was so friendly! Very well priced too! They have...the opportunity to rip off tourists but they don't and you can see they love what they do. Highly recommend Teach Nan Phaidi.More

We were cycling the Inishmore island for the day and came upon this really lovely cafe. Lunch was beautiful and there was a gorgeous selection of home baking!! I would have loved to try it but on that day there wasn’t anything gluten free !...It was thoroughly enjoyed by my husband however! Savoury food was fantastic!More

Hi rira, We don't take reservations. It's walk in only. Sometimes there may be a queue, but usually the wait time is not too long.
