THE place to visit in Sligo!!

Super value for money. The menu changes daily and there is always a choice of 4 mains one of which will be vegetarian. All food is produced in the café and ingredients are sourced locally. Great selection of artisan breads made in their own bakery and a super collection of desserts.

Most delicious cafe ever

We visited this cafe as part of the Sligo Vegan Food Tour. The food was out of this world. Vegan salads, soup, cookies, fruit tarts and the most delicious, fudgy chocolate cake ever. We were blown away.

Great Breakfast and Super Friendly!

Lyons was just steps away from our hotel. The bakery items and coffee were awesome, but better was the staff. Aisling waited on us, asked about our trip, and served up our breakfast. As we were eating she came to our table and gave us very helpful information and tips. We were taking our trip day by day and didn't really have a plan, she gave us great tips that helped form our next moves. Great advice, great coffee, and helpful staff. Thanks, Aisling!
