A nice outdoor cafe just off of Eyre Square making it real handy to get to when in the heart of Galway. Jungle Cafe offers a variety of unique foods and even had a all you can eat special which was great to take advantage of. The only downside to this slice of Jungle life so there is very little...

An oasis like this can really lift up your spirit. Very comfy and surprisingly looking, it also has a very nice menu, offering a variety of choices. I ordered a sandwich and a chai latte and both were delicious.

Went here recently for a coffee. It was a nice sunny day so I was looking for somewhere outdoors. Jungle Cafe is outdoors and serve great coffee. I like all the plants in there giving it the jungle appearance.

Outside tables are sheltered and comfy. We had the eggs & ham and salmon on a croissant. If I ran a cafe I would put both on the menu. The chai was both beautiful and tasty. Great service; worth leaving an American tip.

This is a little hole in the wall outdoor cafe and if not for the colorful sign outside, you would walk right past it. Three-quarters of their seating is under a shelter. On a raining day, there are fewer tables. Food quality is better than many restaurants in Galway. Service is very good.

Stopped by for breakfast whilst on business in Galway and loved it.. Food good and atmosphere so chilled.. It's basically an old yard cleverly decked out and the shed is the serving and kitchen area.. Staff are lovely.. Recommend it 😀

Wow, this place so reminded me of a place at home in Australia! How can they grow citrus and bananas here? It's such a relaxed place with super friendly staff, fantastic coffee and brownies to die for! The only thing I missed were my SMCC (Saturday Morning Coffee Club) friends from home.

Thank ursula220
