Large cafe/bistro across the road from the shrine. Its always packed because of its location and on a busy day there are queues out the door. It serves hot lunches as well as snacks. You join the queue and order your food and pay for it in advance, you are given a number and then look for a table. Sometimes you have to sit at a table which has not been cleared as the staff are so busy. There are lots of choices, all written on a board which you can be looking at whilst in the queue. The food is average and I have eaten here a few times but the restaurant in the Museum building is much nicer but further away from the shrine.

This cafe is just across the road from the old church of the shrine, an ideal location for pilgrims. The food and the value is the best you will find in Knock. The staff are always friendly and helpful and the prices are affordable, lovely food and tea / coffee.
Excellent - I will come here again.
