Shells Café takes great pleasure in everything they put out, making all of their breads in-house, sourcing their ingredients as locally as they can, and only utilizing the greatest food. Their coffee is Fair Trade, hand-roasted in Ireland, and made by skilled baristas. Even the organic herbs they utilize in their meals are grown by them.

If you don’t get the beans on toast, you’re missing out! I came here years ago and honestly couldn’t stop thinking about the homemade beans on toast – unreal 🤤 lots of vegan and veggie options and good strong coffee. Staff are so lovely too!

Vegetarian options: Lots and lots of veggie options! Gf too. – Emma

Top marks! Even tho the place was rammed, the lady found us a table for 4. The pulled pork tacos and fish and chips were excellent. Kids had toasties and chips and were happy out. The lady who served us was excellent, makes all the difference 👍👍💪 – Justin
