Galway Daily food & drink Galway's vegetarian Lighthouse Café opens new location

Plant based power has come to Terryland as Galway’s vegetarian café The Lighthouse has opened a second branch for delicious green food.

Having first opened on Abbeygate street three years ago, The Lighthouse café is coming out of lockdown swinging with a new outlet for customers and an all new menu.

The café which serves non fried vegan and vegetarian food only has reopened with an entire new menu that sees both locations working together to deliver a greater variety of food than ever before.

All dishes are cooked on site in both locations with the Terryland Lighthouse kitchen making all savoury and hot dishes and the team on Abbeygate Street looking after all the in-house bakes.

Then Fiona delivers the produce between locations on the lighthouse electric bike. The business which has a commitment to the environment is trying to support a greener city within Galway.

“We had a lease signed and ready pre-COVID so we really just worked away on making it happen whilst the world went into lockdown,” said Kerry Legh co-owner of The Lighthouse Cafes in Galway.

Now we have two places where people can enjoy our take on vegan and veggie food. We have no fryers so all our food is really healthy which we love.

The menu mainly uses

Highlights from the cold menu include, A Vegan Banh Mi with lentil peanut pate, slaw, tamarind aubergine, pickled Daikon, vegan mayo and coriander all served on crusty bread.

Or a Caraway roast beets and walnut salad with Steve’s leaves, slaw, veggies, lentils with whipped vegan feta or Larry’s Goats Cheese and a Buffalo cauliflower wings bowl with vegan blue cheese dressing and pickles.

The Lighthouse Hot daily specials include a vegan soup, or hotpot like a Chipotle chilli with sweet potato, black beans and kale all served with salad and brown rice.

For sweet treats there is a selection of in-house baked fruit scones, polenta cakes, vegan chocolate brownies or a traditional Carrot cake.

Which all naturally are washed down with a range of freshly brewed coffees, yeas and in house cold pressed juices.

The Lighthouse Café is open on Abbeygate Street and in Terryland from 10am Wednesday to Saturday until 4pm.

The Lighthouse has limited indoor seating but has a full Lighthouse To Go range that you can enjoy which is fully compostable.
