Named The Square Coffee Shop, Portlaw has at long last got a place where locals and visitors alike can go and have a tasty snack right at Malcomson Square, the town's focal point.  For years, visitors to the town have been seen wandering aimlessly around seeking somewhere to eat, having visited Curraghmore estate, the local Heritage Centre, the numerous local woodland walks and country lanes, checking out the unique architectural heritage of the planned town, or maybe even Orienteering in the Tower Hill area. The Coffee Shop is right on the eastern side of the roundabout beside the local library. Sandra, Lisa and Sharon will make you most welcome! There is a very useful information panel a few metres from the coffee shop entrance, pointing out local places of interest. Others can be found at (1) the junction of Queen Street and William Street, also (2) near the bridge end of the riverside walk.  Locals will be only too glad to direct you! 


Sandra says:  Living in Portlaw 9 years, we  - mother and daughter, Sandra and Lisa, with the help of sister Sharon, opened on the 2nd of October 2014. We have always wanted to open a coffee shop and felt Portlaw was in desperate need of one. We chose the name The Square Coffee Shop, as our location in the town has been known to locals as the Square and wanted to keep within the history of Portlaw. All the soup, brown bread and cakes, etc. are homemade. We have an all-day breakfast menu starting from €2. We also do sandwiches, wraps and paninis fresh to order ranging from €3.95 to €4.95. We also offer baked potatoes with a range of fillings. We offer a catering menu and can make occassion cakes to order. Our opening times are Monday to Saturday 9.30am to 4pm.
