We were away in killaloe for a night away and so looked forward to going to the wooden spoon the following day, we spent very near €50 for few bits and felt the staff were not intrested in serving us, the girl on the till...seemed more bothered with plants they were arranging and the girl making the coffee tossed the coffees out and turned her back again. We both felt walking out as if we weren't welcome in! Coffee was lovely but the pasties wernt very fresh, still a very cute shop but I'm afraid their failte needs work!More
Rip off Ireland again. Not much choice here but what they have is fairly pricey. Bakewell is nice but even takeaway prices are higher than most places. Got quoted 35euro for the full tart ! We asked for a slice of apple pie priced at...3.50. Received a small sliver of pie. We asked for a spot of cream with it and guy put in a tiny spoonful of cream in a tub. Went to pay and he demanded 3.90. We queried this and he said it was 40 cent for the cream! Small pot plants there priced at 40 euros. Won’t be going back. They obviously don’t want locals going there it seems.More
I love the atmosphere, the friendly staff and the delicious food. I also appreciate the huge wooden table and the wooden food-presentation tablets with gorgeous tiles, both, I was told, were made by the owner. This place has soul.
We found this lovely coffee shop by accident. We were in Killaloe-Ballina looking for a quick coffee and cake but needed somewhere to park. The Wooden Spoon fit the bill because there is parking in the shopping centre next door.
The staff are lovely and...there a really nice range of food. We had a Bakewell Sponge with cream and a Rasperry and Apple Scone with Jam and Cream (and a pot of tea for two). The bill came to less than €12 and the food was excellent.
The only drawback is the seating. Its difficult to get a seat - there are a couple of big (seating about 15 people) tables, a counter along the window and just a few smaller tables. When we visited, it was packed and even when we did get a seat, people were asking to take the chairs beside us.
If they could get the seating right, it would be absolutely fabulous.More
