Julie Magan’s delightful 2-storey coffee house and informal restaurant in the centre of Mullingar is attractively set up - the first floor area is particularly pleasing, with a seating area of sofas, low tables and plants at the top of the stairs setting a relaxed tone. The rest is more conventionally furnished in café style - and a more comfortable height for eating a real meal.
Menus cater for all the changing moods though the day, beginning with an extensive breakfast, including the full traditional, then there are the mid-day bites like home-made soup, panini, steak baguettes, and much more.
More predictably, there’s a nice little drinks menu offering everything from big glasses of freshly squeezed orange juice through iced teas, smoothies, teas - and, of course, coffees (Java Republic), any way you like, including flavoured coffees.
Everything is deliciously fresh and wholesome, staff are charming and efficient, with reasonable prices. Takeaway also available. Wine licence.
