“A Presidents lunch!”

The Obama Cafe & Souvenir Shop
Ranked #1 of 2 Restaurants in Moneygall
Restaurant details
Reviewed 11 June 2014

We visited here early June following our American friend who was travelling with us infomred our group about the Irish/American connection in this little quiet little village of Moneygal, Co Offaly.

The cafe\restaurant is inviting and we were lucky enough to have some sun so we sat on the terrace and enjoyed a tasty lunch including toasted Panini with chips, and some lovely home made bakewell tarts.

This lovely cafe provided the best possible midway stop off point for us driving from Limerick to Dublin.
The staff were friendly and well informed on local knowledge etc and the owner/manager Paul provided directions for lost tourists like us - which was greatly appreciated hence we will be back for sure.

Thank you!

I visited this little homely gem recently and what a nice experience I had. The day was wet so the open fire was very welcome indeed. Arriving I expected soup and sandwiches so I was delighted to find they served other hot food options such as home made lasagne and quiche options. The staff were warm friendly and efficient and the family ownership shone through with generous portions & local knowledge. Can you get a photo with the life size picture of president Obama? " yes we can" plus get your souvenir fix with both Irish/ American and local items for sale. A must visit as a perfect stop off to refresh the troops.
