And Lastly

Although not a vegan myself I very much enjoy a wholesome meal and these plant based dishes certainly hit the spot.

People have been known to come from far and wide to sample these delights. So much so the shop has even added its own merchandise with beanies, t shirts and sweaters available for purchase.

The cafe is also a perfect location for when visiting the Glencar Waterfall with only a short 15 minute drive between them, although the waterfall is classed as being in Leitrim the borders are close.

Another interesting Sligo adventure would be the Caves of Keash. Located on the southern end of Sligo these caves are a fun family adventure and hike the views are out of this world on a clear day.

Another great find for our collection of cafes around the world, its certainly one we think highly of and rate it a one of the top.
