FIELD’S Coffee Shop is more than a place to buy good coffee,healthy snacks and delicious breads and cakes, it is a meeting place. But, even if you are just taking a break before starting in on the weekly shop, or just want ten minutes of ‘me time’, the newly-revamped coffee shop is the perfect place to sit and watch the world go by.

As far as locations go, there isn’t a better one in all of Skibbereen because the two huge windows that open on to the town’s main square offer a vantage point unlike any other. Comfortable seats in soothing chocolate and vanilla tones has a wonderful soporific effect, which means that for a few euro you can experience that same feeling you get when you are on holiday – relaxed, away from the phone, and feeling ever so slightly indulgent.

A lot of people swear by the café’s wholesome soups, like carrot and coriander; others are addicted to Field’s own custard slices and Danish pastries; but there are some who wouldn’t go past its delicious and nutritious sandwiches. The famous Field’s sliced pan is used in the making of all of the sandwiches, like tuna and salad on white, or the perfectly seasoned egg on wholemeal brown bread. Knowing that it has been freshly made that day is a major consideration because today all too many of our foodstuffs come pre-packaged and with an unfeasibly long shelf life.
