Maxwells is my go-to breakfast spot when in Galway. They do a great veggie breakfast, the restaurant is comfortable and staff are friendly. Definitely worth a visit.

We got fresh juice and two serves of the French toast, which were huge and delicious. The place was warm, the service was great. Five stars from us.
