Simply the best place in Athy for coffee, cakes or anything right up to a full dinner. Fresh, warm, huge yummy scones. We will have to keep coming back to sample all the cakes! The staff are lovely.

Met a friend for coffee one morning. I had glass of water and slice of pavlova and my friend had a coffee and a scone. Bother the pavlova and the scone were very nice. The staff were helpful. Overall a lovely visit.

The Bay Tree still serves gluten free food but overall service standards and quality have sadly slipped. This is since the two owners opened a restaurant in Portlaoise. The panache has gone from the Bay Tree and apart from the gluten free food it is...no different from any other cafe in the town.More

Popped in for Breakfast after getting my hair done and was greeted by lovely friendly staff. There was a great variety to choose from on the menu. My choice was absolutely delicious and will definitely be returning again soon.

The bay tree Athy is a must for me at least twice a week if not more. Having a gluten intolerance I find it extremely hard when eating out, menus are limited but at the bay tree I can have my full Irish sausages pudding...the lot for breakfast pasta dishes, battered fish sauces and gravy’s but for a sweet tooth like mine the cakes and desserts are a must for me. It’s wonderful to be able to eat out with my family and friends and enjoy everything. Last year my family held a little get together for my birthday the ordered a birthday cake from the bay tree my family were astounded at how wonderful the cake tasted . The bay tree makes gluten free food taste fab I highly recommend this little gem of a restaurant.More
