It's just the kind of place visitors need to know about [...] Particularly recommended for home baking, consistently good salads and desserts (Raspberry and almond tart, Italian chocolate cake) in an unfussy atmosphere. Great coffees, teas, infusions and freshly squeezed juice too.

I've seen people double park to get in here! [...] He has an Italian Pastry Chef who bakes brown bread and an array of desserts daily, which you can buy to take home with you [...]

Job well done!

I dream about Anton's scrambled egg with tomato and feta cheese – creamy but light, and consistently the finest anywhere on this side of the equator. [...] Anthony works wonders with soups, salads, sandwiches and quiches. [...] The all-day breakfast on Saturdays and Sundays is worth fasting for.

A Galway Odyssey - Sunday Tribune


But the real gem this week was a very easy spot called Anton's, on Father Griffin Road. It is a small premises, with space for about twenty to thirty. The food is simple. The menu consists of a special daily soup, a range of foccacio sandwiches, a couple of salads and drop dead gorgeous cakes.


I started with a glass of squeezed-to-order orange juice. This was just what I needed. The room had the encouraging blend of fairly arty types and business people.


I had the soup, a piquant tomato and beetroot number that was perfect in depth of flavour and consistency. It was served with scrumptious brown bread. I also had a smoked ham and Emmenthal foccacio, which came with a nice little salad.


With a thick, authentic espress and a pot of home made blackberry jam to take back, I drove eastwards sated and reminiscing.

Neil Clancy, Sunday Tribune

This little cafe specialises in healthy yet yummy lunchtime food, featuring tasty, generous sandwiches and salads. The emphasis is on focaccia rather than a fry-up, but you can indulge yourself with the homemade desserts offered. Anton's fills up quickly for lunch, so sneak in early to be sure of getting a table.

"...for lunch it has to be Anton's in Galway for spicy tuna salad followed by one of their brilliant desserts - any of the tarts or the dark chocolate cake..."
