Situated just a stone’s throw from our townhouse, the Tea Rooms @ Gleeson’s Artisan Food & Wine Shop offers an extensive range of home-grown, organic, artisan and international produce, including our renowned home-made brown bread and scones, our home-baked ham, chutneys and relishes and a large selection of cheeses, olives and artisan wines. Baked fresh every morning onsite from 5am by our pastry chef.
Since the premises opened in 2006, all of the food served is of excellent quality, using locally sourced ingredients, and cooked in our own kitchen. We take great care in choosing the best quality artisan producers with an emphasis on Irish organic produce which is why we picked Bell Lane Coffee an artisan, hand-roasted coffee company from Mullingar as our coffee of choice.
Light lunches are the speciality - frittatas, quiches, wholesome sandwiches, soups, salads and sweet treats were already on the menu but, in order to cater for increased demand, Gleeson’s gutted the premises to transform the shop to include a new Tea Room. While seating had previously been limited, many more can now be comfortably accommodated.
All of the old favourites are still available on the menu, but new additions have also been made, with made to order wraps now proving especially popular and home-baked sourdough bread sandwiches are also a real treat. New sweets treats such as mini bake well tarts, Gleeson’s signature jumbo cookies and rocky road brownies have also been added to the offering.
From freshly baked breads, Light bites and gourmet sandwiches to Loose leaf tea and homemade jumbo chocolate chip cookies....the Tea Rooms is the perfect place to lunch, regroup with family, friends or colleagues over a speciality sandwich or sweet treat. And if you wish to bring home a taste of Roscommon with you, try some locally produced, handmade chocolates made by the Roscommon Chocolate Company for an extra special treat or for the health conscious, Killbeggan organic porridge.
The Tea Rooms @Gleeson’s Artisan Food & Wine Shop is open Monday to Saturday from 10am to 5.30pm, for more information, call +353 (0)90 662 6954.
