Lovely, small cafe in central Athenry. Friendly staff and a homely touch of decoration. Delicious crepes, easy stop off the motorway to or from galway to Dublin.

On a particularly rainy day, my husband and I needed to take shelter and there was The Nook. We ducked in and were able to enjoy delicious hot chocolates and crepes. Really cool spot!

Although it's small inside, the nook is a miniature aladdens cave!! Lots of interesting things adorn the walls to keep your interest as you eat, the food is delicious, crepes with a good variety of fillings also lovely coffee! We will definitely be calling again!

Called for coffee on an evening out in Athenry. Such a quirky little space with lots of charm. Sells not only food but locally produced soaps, face creams and pottery. Certainly unique! Only complaint, lack of toilet facilities.
