Tries to look like a branch of Starbucks but fails miserably on all counts. The food, coffee,staff all uninspiring and the level of cleanliness leaves a lot to be desired. As a Galwegian I do not know anyone who frequents this place despite it's claim to have the best coffee in Galway. . It's location make it a tourist trap... More

Hi Alan, Wow, this was probably the hardest to read review we have ever had on TripAdvisor! And found even more upsetting that your experience was so bad, it compelled you to leave your very first review on TripAdvisor! Firstly, I apologise if you found the cleanliness to be unsatisfactory. I will personally see to it that our cleaning procedures... More

Ate here yesterday with my mum and son. I have to say the staff were great in accommodating us with a push chair and then a high chair. Really fantastic. The sandwiches are a bit more interesting than most of galways cafes. We had 1 wrap w a cup of soup and a salad. The salad (goat's cheese) was a... More

Pascals is a hidden gem just off shop street in Galway. A great spot for coffee (machiatto is great from here) and light eating - in particular breakfast or lunch. The vegetarian options are plentiful , including snacks like almond balls. Relatively unique menu including porridge. Service was prompt and friendly. Highly recommend.

My husband and I had a great breakfast at Pascal Coffee House. It feels like a cafe but offers relaxed, sit down service. For coffees we offered an Americano and a cappuccino.

Service was fine, coffee was good. We were disappointed by the lack of cleanliness of the place. Also, the Chai latte wasn't properly mixed when poured and left a chunk in the bottom. I rarely give such negative reviews, but this coffee shop advertises as "best one in Galway."

Have eaten here a number of times and am always impressed in both premises! Great selection of breakfasts, tasty sandwiches that are prepared quickly and the coffee is out of this world! I brought a friend who was breast-feeding and who had a young child with her here recently and, having been asked to stop breast feeding her 3-month-old baby... More

I was in Galway for an appointment and ended up parking near here. I found this spot completely by accident but what a find! Easily the best cafe breakfast I have ever had! Try the Eggs Benedict and the White Angel Coffee!! What an absolute treat!!
