Thu, Jan 16, 2020

Some healthy eating is a common one to make, especially if you made a little too 'merry' over the festive season. But trying to get all of your five-a-day into you can be more difficult than it sounds. Time is short, temptation surrounds us, and cravings are hard to ignore.

Christmas at Goya’s

Thu, Dec 19, 2019

There are certain scents that inevitably trigger memories of Christmases past. The smells of Christmas are every bit as important as the sights and sounds, and one of the finest olfactory fixes at this time of year has to be in Goya's. Come December, the usual stack of cardboard cake boxes behind the counter are cleared away to make room for the rows of fat plum puddings wearing an elegant livery of bows — red, green, and blue ribbons depending on their poundage. The aromas of citrus and spice, cinnamon and vanilla, have been bringing Christmas to life on Kirwan's Lane for many years.

Goya’s is Galway’s original café and bakery. There is always a friendly atmosphere and the food is, of course, delicious. I am particularly partial to the light and sharp lemon meringue pie and the deep cups of frothy hot chocolate. The deli is a relatively recent addition to the café. Lunch is served between 12.30pm and 3pm, when you can sample the delicious home-made soup, individual quiches and pies, a range of salads, and toasted specials are also served during the day. Goya's excellent pâté is always a particularly nice lunch. I have often taken some home thinking that with such a big container I would put half into the freezer for another time. This has never happened, we always polish off the lot.

Caprice has been a favourite with Galwegians and visitors since its opening a couple of years back. The first thing you notice about Caprice is that the interior looks like a Pinterest board dream, all calm colours and twinkling lights. It is clear that a great deal of thought has gone into this design. Located at the corner of Church Lane and Market Street, Caprice has added to this area of town. It is a bit off the beaten path, but that does not seem to put many people off visiting. A good menu often trumps an out of the way address.
