I was so overwhelmed by the variety of sweet treats offered at this coffeeshop! We enjoyed some lovely desserts, coffee and hot chocolate and loved the view of a beautiful farm across the street.

Had lunch in here, food was really good, not expensive and of really good quality, on the way out you have to pick up a cake the temptation is too great.

Called in late morning, midweek, easily found on Sky Street, bright and airy cafe with view of river to rear, large menu selection we ate 2 breakfasts plus b/f bap, v tasty, large portions but sausages overcooked and it was a little expensive. But overall if in Clifden again we would revisit.

Lots of breads, cakes and patisseries plus a cafe in the back which serves snacks and cakes - ideal for coffee/tea time and lunch. The windows at the back of the cafe offer a great view of Clifden Bay.

Our friends took us to Walsh's for coffee and cakes before heading out to Inishbofin. The selection is vast and everything is so fresh. The rhubarb crumble was so yummy. And the eclairs are out of this world. They are filled with white cream and not the heavy pudding cream which makes me adore them even more. Since we are... More

On arrival, you are greeted by an array of freshly baked cakes. The cafe is self service. The menu isn't the biggest in the world but it is very reasonably priced. I had fish and chips with mushy peas. It was delicious. We had a lovely seat at the back with a view onto Clifden bay. It's bright and airy... More
