Had a savory stop because I couldn't resist trying their feta and cherry tomato tart. Glad I did, it was delicious and my Mummy's rhubarb crumble didn't disappoint either. Will be back!

I popped in to the Steam Café while 'Madame' was attending an Arts Festival event just around the corner at the Station House Theatre. Gorgeous strawberry meringue cake 'thing' and a large cappuccino. Always a nice friendly atmosphere in there. Ssssh ! Don't tell . It'll be our little secret.

This cafe is on two levels and my lunchtime visit found it full and with people gladly waiting for a seat; it was bustling, the staff going full tilt to look after everyone and they managed to do so very speedily.

Lovely Coffee shop, great coffee and very accommodating staff. We were staying in the self-catering apartments at the Station House Hotel, and habitually headed to steam for coffee and a scone before setting off for the day.

Stopped here before doing a mooch around Clifden. What a find. Coffee was superb - the Mocha was perfect! I wished I'd ordered a large instead of a regular ;-p
