I know that this place has high rank with Tripadvisor but our experience was, let say, not the best one. Coffee was OK but dessert simply not possible to eat, not to mention that looks like (and taste) few days old. Presuming that this was accident we will give another chance in the future but for now we'll stay away.

The Bay Tree is a great little nook in Athy - a gem of sorts. Great coffee, freshly squeezed orange juice and great breakfast menu. Flashy or simple menu on offer. Lunch and dinner are also offered. I cannot fault this place. The welcome is always a smile and a genuine 'how are you?'. I see the same faces here... More

We stopped here for a quick bite on a Sunday, as we had to feed our 18 month old son and were passing through. Unfortunately this was one occasion where TripAdvisor failed me miserably. The dining area itself was like stepping back into 1979. We sat ourselves at a table as a few staff had passed and not acknowledged our... More
