Reviewed 3 August 2014

We needed a coffee break from shopping. Lemon cheesecake and coffee hit the spot. Cheesecake was lite and had great flavor.

“Buns Galore”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

This shop could seriously damage your diet. Food in cafe is very canny and the cakes are incredibly tempting. This place is always full, but service quick and friendly!

“Great bakery but expensive”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

We had a coffee and cake here which was reasonably priced and so went back the next day to buy some pies from the bakery.
We bought 4 steak and stout pies which were €5 each which, although very tasty, was quite expensive.

“Rip off!”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

We are a family of 2 adults and 2 children. On a recent visit to Clifden, we visited this bakery as the reviews seemed very good. We had 2 childrens wraps (wrap with ham and cheese without salad, chips etc) 1 coffee, a scone and a beef pie, and water to drink. The bill came to €26.80 which seems very expensive. Also, the coffee was so disappointing, it was cold and watery.

This is supposed to be a bakery but it appeared that most pastries, cakes etc were bought in from elsewhere.
The staff were not friendly and just wanted to rush everyone along not wanting to give them time to choose. Overall this was a very disappointing experience and we will not return.
