We called ... As sometimes regular customers for lunch. The service was reasonable as was the food ... However.. The chips (which we all had on the side) were undercooked and hard... I complained to our server who is a long time staff member and her reply was "I'll take note of that.. Thanks". I have to say I was... More

The food: amazing The staff: amazing Everything about this restaurant is fantastic. The lunch menu will make you want to try everything and come back for more! The peanut butter stack is my personal favourite.

Although this restaurant is a bit off the beaten track it is well worth searching out. We used it for breakfast which was beautifully cooked. The menu for lunch also looks interesting and appetising.

I love breakfast here you should really try the salmon omelette, it's a tasty healthy alternative to the full irish, the staff are helpful and friendly and on a nice day you can sit outside ( given the random Irish weather this doesn't happen too often) lastly the loo is immaculate .

I love to support little businesses like this when staying away in hotels. Breakfast a lot less than the hotel and better. Porridge to set you up for the day. Local friends said they often use them for functions and you could see trays of things going out. Definitely worth coming here.

The gorgeous smells just meets you when you open the door, you know like a stir fry, corriander, chilli, garlic yum! As we already had lunch elsewhere we just needed coffee and something sweet.

Finally, a meal in Ireland that doesn't take hours! We ordered, and the food was out in minutes. Just what we needed with a cranky toddler :) And it was HOT, and delicious!! The staff was so friendly, and so helpful...again, with a cranky toddler :) Highly recommend! And there is PARKING!! (hard to come by easily in Athlone)
