We ate here and bought some takeaway cake here recently. Nice coffee shop in the centre of Clifden that serves good homemade food.

We had a beautiful view of the area from our window, a perfect addition to a marvelous breakfast. So many delightful choices in their bakery. Even got great advice on taking the Sky Road! (Don't miss it!)

My fiancé and I spend two nights in town and stopped by for tea and deserts. We had strawberry/mango and Chamomile tea. Both were delicious. Then we had the chocolate blackjack and white chocolate cheesecake. Again both delicious. Highly recommend stopping by.
