Merchant Café

Merchant Cafe is one of Galway City’s most welcome additions to the city’s dining scene. Having been totally transformed into a bright and beautiful space, it has fast become the usual spot for locals, while being a delightful hidden gem for tourists along their travels.

We specialize in premium barista made coffees with delicious food and superior customer service all wrapped up in a stunning setting on the corner of Eyre Square.

Our main focus is to create simple, honest, and fresh dishes sourced locally from farms and the sea to create a menu bursting with amazing flavor. We are big believer’s in the old saying, “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day” so we make sure to have our breakfast and brunch menu available all day, every day. If you’re looking for something filling to kickstart your day you’ve got to indulge in our full Irish Breakfast with all the trimmings, or if you’re in the mood for something light and classic, our Merchant Eggs Benedict or granola bowls will hit the spot
