Had afternoon break here for cake and hot chocolate. Really good lemon and chocolate cake. Did not try the lunch options but menu selection looked nice and judging by the cake will return to try them

If you're looking for something at a reasonable price, I'd recommend their special deal - a cup of homemade soup with a choice of toasted sandwiches. It's a filling, nourishing and tasty mid day meal.

Stopped in here for a quick lunch. Had the club bagel and a cup of tomato basil. The wife also had the very lemony lemon cake. Everything was excellent. Some of the best yard bird we have found on a deli style sandwhich. Definitely check this place out if in Clifden.

Thank Spicoli76
