Hello everybody I frequently visit this establishment and have to say its great Good food quality you 100% get what you pay for. Cakes, sandwiches, dinners, breads, scones, salads. I love John Rs. Recently they have been move inventive with graze boxes dessert boxes etc...so would definitely recommend trying one. Their apple pies and crumbles are to die for. So are their meringues roulade from the front counter. They are also growing their presence on Instagram which is handy because I always now know what's available before I go in on the day so Ive decided what I want which makes my visit nice and quick for social distancing. Lovely staff there too. Support local.More

As eating al fresco is now the new norm, we ordered a picnic basket from John Rs in Listowel! The picnic basket included a cooked chicken, a selection of fresh salads, beautiful homemade bread along with delicious desserts! All these treats were beautifully presented in...a traditional picnic basket! I would definitely reccomend availing of this service for your next outdoor excursion!More

Today for my lunch break I went to John R's coffee shop& bakery. I ordered sandwiche the girl that served me never ask me if I wont take away or stay in and eat, I also got a muffin and a drink. I paid for...my food and I sat at the table. After a minute man the owner of the shop came to me and said that I paid for take away food so I have to live . I could not say anything because I was shocked. I packed my sandwiche and I got out. I felt discriminated, sad& angry. I didn't know that they charge extra mony to eat in.Inside wasn't busy there was three empty tables.More

Was traveling to West Kerry lately and stopped off at John R's - surely a piece of heaven. Staff are most pleasant and attentive. Quality of food is both superb and reasonably priced. Will be calling again to this oasis of food.

I dont think so. It is like a cafe attached to a bakery.
