My goodness - I am truly shocked that you feel it necessary to bash any business in this way - although I feel these comments say more about you than us on this occasion.

Galway's chicest new eatery, Caprice Cafe, is wowing Galwegians and visitors with its delicious dishes served in beautiful surroundings. Located at the corner of Church Lane and Market Street, 'Caprice', which means sudden change of mood, has certainly added to the vibrancy of the area. It is a 16-year dream come true for owners Vicky and John Casey, after years running John’s local family business, KC Blake’s Brasserie, with his father Bernie Casey. Speaking at the launch, Vicky said: “After 16 years together, my husband John and I have finally created our dream cafe in the heart of Galway City. Our food is fresh, cooked to order and sourced locally. As recently featured on the front page of the Hotel & Restaurant Times, the Caprice Cafe interior embraces you, creating a calming dining environment in the middle of the city, including the upstairs’ unrivalled views of both St. Nicholas’ Church and the Galway Cathedral. But the highlight of your visit has to be the food, from breakfast through to dinner; even their organic coffee recently won a double gold star from the Guild of Fine Foods UK & Ireland and is available to go!
