Churros n' Coffee

This new twist in Galway's thriving coffee scene opened in the first week of June 2021 - just in time for summer's first bank holiday weekend.

The closest cafe to St Nicholas' Collegiate Church, they're in the shop which was Archie's ice-creams last summer, and before that Cafe Express, next door to Roots.  There's now a building-size mural painted on the gable-end, which brightens the view from St Nicholas market / church-door.   Hopefully the city planners won't notice!

Churros are dough snacks from Spanish and Portuguese cuisine, traditionally deep-fried - and this shop is sticking to the tradition.   They've featured on the menu in Cava and Hooked and in the occasional food-stall, but this is Galway's first shop-based takeaway churros experience.

The coffee is branded Coffee Nation, which this doesn't seem to have any other outlets in Ireland at the moment.
