Claddagh may be small but that just enhances the cozy atmosphere - and fortunately, there is additional space downstairs. Coffee drinks are excellent - they take time to make each one perfectly so be patient.

They make their own Chai which is fantastic! Quaint little coffee shop. Have homemade pastries. Sometimes have art shows downstairs.

Good coffee, great coffee house... particularly on a blustery November day! Barista was wonderful, too!

I happened to stop by here to study and it was wonderful! The staff is so kind and the coffee is strong. They have space both upstairs and downstairs as well as conveniently-placed outlets.

Great spot to meet business colleagues or friends. Owner is incredibly friendly, they make their own coffee cake, and the coffee selection and poor overs are excellent. Small outdoor area and basement cellar seating area as well as main floor. Dog friendly.

Irish themed coffee shop. Full coffee bar. Nice breakfast items. Try the Irish oats or the veggie pannin. Both very good. Very welcoming and friendly atmosphere. St. Paul at its finest.

I've come here several times for meetings. There is a nice basement meeting room that the owners are very willing to make available. The shop itself is in a building with a lot of personality. The food is very good and is reasonably priced. I'm not a coffee drinker so I can't comment on the drinks.

I stumbled into this place before a long day at a trade show and I loved it so much that I came back again while I was in town. The breakfast sandwiches are very affordable and they have lots of fun coffee drinks with Irish themes. I got the Sister Mary and the Dirty Seamus and the best part for... More

Have tried Claggagh a few times now with mixed results every time (3 attempts in a year) The interior is great, an older interior with the tin ceilings. The shop has two levels, with lots more seating in the lower level. They offer a very wide selection of drinks, with every option available. Plus they have a few waffles that... More

First, I must disclose that I am a coffee snob - drink it a lot (cappuccinos, espressos, etc.) and have a nice espresso machine at home. Wanting to get out of the house this past Saturday 12.19, we decided to try this newer coffeehouse on West 7th. So, we went there. The place is nicely redone with exposed brick walls... More
