Breakfast in Bearna

We had breakfast at The Coffee House in Bearna village on Saturday.  Bearna is a Gaeltacht town about 5 miles west of Galway.  The name "Bearna" is the Irish word for a gap in a stone wall, just in case you ever need to win a bet at a bar or something.  That could come in handy.  So, my Awesomer Half and I always order a latte when we visit coffee shops but this time we ordered Chai:

This was an unexpected presentation.  The creamer cup just contains more Chai.  They serve it with lots of cinnamon.  Nice.

Breakfast was reasonably priced and very tasty.  It was €6.50 for eggs, sausage & toast.  The little ramekin contained home-made ketchup!

Butter.  Contains milk.

Holy Cow, Batman! Butter contains milk?  Who knew?!?!?

Good coffee shop.  We'll be back.  Go raibh maith agat.

After breakfast we drove into Galway.  Bye bye Bearna!

    1. Yes, it's a nice shop in the Gaeltacht area. This village is a great place to visit if you want to hear people actually speaking Irish. TG4 films an Irish-language soap opera (Ros na Rún) here in Bearna and Spiddal village. I really love this area.
