This little cafe offers a limited menu but a nice selection of teas, coffees and soft drinks. Great place to unwind from the city. Service was prompt but you never feel rushed.

The menu was a bit limited, however the food is simply divine. We have had the avocado, eggs and chorizo on toast. It was quickly served, delicious and the staff was friendly and attentive. I recommend the Crawford Gallery Cafe to everyone.

A busy bustling atmosphere here. All tables were full when we arrived, but we decided to queue. We didn't have to wait long, and the gentleman who was looking after tables and the queue was really nice, and kept a good eye on those who...More

Charged almost €20 for a coffee, soup and a sandwich. Absolutely ridiculous price for what we got, very bad value for money. Food was nice but not worth the price.

I go here regularly when my son is at art class in the same building. I bring my book and order the same thing each week....the cheese sandwiches with relish pickle and the soup with tea. Its €11.50 in total and money well spent. Its...More
