The Coffee Dock

 Julie Armstrong and her team have built up such a reputation for the quality on offer at this modern shopping centre café in Bundoran that it attracts a steady stream of local business people and shoppers – and regulars travelling in the area will plan a detour off the main road for the pleasure of a meal here.


Smartly presented, with tables set up outside for fine weather, a welcoming blackboard at the door, quality furnishings, table service and pleasant background music, The Coffee Dock is a nice place to be and – while not claiming to be a food destination as such – it’s very well run and everything is always tasty, with real homemade flavour.


A varied menu includes all day breakfast dishes (try the delicious porridge with berries, brown sugar and cream), sandwiches, toasties, panini and bagels with good choice of fillings, omelettes, salads and so on.


Soup is served with 'Tom's famous brown bread', and the eponymous baker is Tom Dooley, renowned for the excellent cooking at his destination café Aroma at The Craft Village just outside Donegal Town. A full coffee and tea menu is offered, and Tom’s cakes and desserts are the perfect indulgent companion - the Moroccan orange cake is especially recommended...


On Saturday night only, they open from 7pm for an evening of tapas and guitar playing - this has become so popular that you need to book well ahead. And no wonder, this is a smart little place that’s doing all the right things.


The Coffee Dock is a useful place to know about any time you’re in the general area.

Seats 40 (+ 10 outdoors). Open all day Mon-Fri 9-6, Sat & Sun 10-6. D Sat only from 7pm (tapas & live music), reservations essential. BYO. Children welcome (high chair, childrens menu, baby changing facilities). Parking nearby. Closed 25 & 26 Dec. Amex, MasterCard, Visa, Laser. abbreviations
