Buon Appetito(!): Open on Sunday mornings...............
Full of people at 11.30am on Sunday, very buzzy, friendly and efficient staff. 'Irish' breakfast well-cooked and reasonably-priced, good tea. Lots of other food on menu, including Irish stew & mash. Can sit outside if you're a smoker.Related to:

Trattoria Pasta Mista: Italian Food
This is a small restaurant on one of the main streets of Galway. We initially attempted to eat here on New Year's Eve 2004! A mistake not to have booked as we couldn't get in. So on New Year's day 2005 we came back and I am glad we did.
It is quite crowded with tables and chairs when you get in but it all leads to a great cosy atmosphere.
The staff were all very freindly and helpful. Especially since they were experiencing power cuts in the kitchen and bar areas. But it didn't spoi our meal.
Well worth eating here.
Favorite Dish: Any pizza!! The 3 we had here were all excellent!
They are just to yummy for words.
Grocery stores: Get beans at the store
I was so poor once I hit Galway that I had to pray when I went to the ATM. I had to cut back spending and it ended up being food money! What did I survive on (other then the free toast and coffee for Breakfast at the hostel)? I had baked beans on toast. Yes, sounds weird and not too tasty but it eased the pain of my belly and gave me money to see yet another thing in the wonderful world of Galway.

The River Goddess: The Goddess Rules!
We first decided to try this place because of the advertisement out front. They had a "tourist menu" for 20 euros that included a soup, entree, dessert, and beverage and we were in the mood to splurge. Oh, but it was great. And the atmosphere was terrific. Very other-worldly.
Favorite Dish: I had a penne in cream sauce, garnished with fresh mussels. My friend had the chicken dish and both of us had a creamy, dill tomatoe soup. Everything was wonderful.
Griffins Bakery: Take-Away
This is not a place to sit and eat. Rather, it is place to buy great sandwiches and rolls, which are absolutely stuffed full with fillings and then go and enjoy them somewhere else. This bakery is so popular that they have adopted a ticket system. You have to take a numbered ticket and then wait for your number to be called out! You will see why if you visit this place. It is so small that there is no way that you could form a queue.Related to:

Java's: Coffee & great sarni's
Java's is a small chain of coffeshops in Ireland - they are laid back and friendly.
I especially like them late at night when you feel like a break from squashed bars and nightclubs.
In Galway Java's can be seen as "gay friendly", but it's not relevant and dosn't have that sort of feel to it.
Favorite Dish: The Coffee in uniformly good, but my favourite delight it the "Javanormous" sandwich. It's packed with about anything that comes out of the kitchen and certainly takes some eating !
Couch Potatas: The staple diet of Ireland is what ?
A fairly terrible pun for a name, but this place is great.
As the name suggests it serves mainly filled jacket potatoes, but it also does soups and salads etc.
It has about 30 seats so it often has a crowded atmosphere. Most patrons are young working people or students.
The atmosphere is relaxed within the blue walls and pine tables and the service friendly.
An ideal choice for a lunchtime fill-up, and no need to book.
Favorite Dish: Some of the spicer concoctions are excellent.Related to:
