Adorable cafe and shop!

I came here with a vegan tour group and it was just lovely! The owner had a special lunch planned for us with delicious bread, hummus and pesto, nacho bowls, chocolate mouse and cakes! Everything was super yummy. Would definitely be a regular if I lived in Ireland!

Relaxed and welcoming

I moved to the area last year and have visited here on a number of occasions since. Staff are always helpful and the food is very tasty, in particular a pumpkin soup I tried last week.
Worth a visit if you’re in the area.
Also has good coffee!

Pros: Vegan options , Nice space, Good coffee

Wonderful veggie spot

Found this place while looking for vegan options on our day trip to Trim. I was really happy with the place, the vegan options and the super friendly staff - they went through the menu explaining what were the plant based options and all the ingredients they used for the very colourful and delicious salads. They also have a shop, which was closed today, but it looked really nice. I would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Trim Castle to make a stop and grab some food here :)

Pros: Lot of vegan options, Reasonable prices , Friendly staff

Rude staff

My husband and I popped in for some lunch and never again staff were just rude, I asked for an almond cappuccino and was given a dairy milk cappuccino the waitress was just rude when I asked her to change it for almond! And my husband had a vegan burger and half an hour later he was starving again portion sizes were tiny

Can i ask what you ordered and on what day so we can have a look into it. Sorry to ask but we seem to be getting false reviews not by customers that are being investigated.

Needs improvement

Being a busy Personal trainer I had a Client in Trim who I brought to Trim n Healthy for a bite to eat before her busy Demanding Personal training session, We ordered the pancakes with fresh berries and pancakes, when we got these they were 5 inches thick with a scarce amount of berries, Being a Qualifed nutritionist they shouldn't be so thick and could have more berries for the price of them, We also ordered fresh scones that came out like a rock... they definitely were not fresh, We were let down by our meal and the wait was pretty slow. Tips for here would be to learn portion sizes, give value for money and make fresh scones daily

Pros: Location , Easy parking

Cons: Expensive, Portion sizes, Wait time

Our pancakes are not 5 inches thick, as i don't think i am able to make them that big and this would be quite a feat and somewhat impressive!!
The pancakes are 1-2 cm thick hence the name fluffy pancakes. We dont have crepes on the menu which are flat. I have put a photo on this site for you to see.
Our scones are made fresh each morning as our genuine customers are aware. These are normally gone by mid afternoon each day therefore never get a chance to be stale. They are never kept for the following day.
We aim to get meals out within 10 mins as we cook fresh ONCE you order.
I am not a personal trainer but we are a family of sports enthusiast and competitors and I would question why you would eat before a personal training session. We do serve protein shakes and smoothies which might have been more suitable.
Thank you for your tips and we will bear this in mind however our portion sizes are more than adequate and very good value for money.

I suggest you do your homework and realise what a post workout meal is which by your comment shows you dont have a clue!! Its a post workout meal I never stated how long before our pt session we were eating our meal!! You can eat a post workout meal from 30 minutes to a few hours before your workout.. So leave the
Honors Nutritional and personal training side to me and work on the slow service, Being a family of sports enthusiasts and competitor's you should know this!! Everyone can learn something new which im sure you have now and sadly we didn't have a great experience in your restaurant, Thanks for taking the time to respond it shows you care and take note of how to improve your business

I would just like to add that ‘POST’ workout means ‘AFTER’ a work out. The original comment said, and I quote ‘before her busy Demanding Personal training session’. That is all.

Never again

Myself and my sister decided to pop in to Trim n Healthy for lunch, we were sitting beside the door and the smell of cigarette smoke coming in was disgusting, we waited quite a while for our order to be taken, We asked for our coffee to be brought out with the food, our coffee was not brought with the food and by the time our food did arrive the coffee was cold, We felt like we were forgotten about, we dont feel it was acceptable because the cafe was not busy, I wouldn't recommend it at all

Pros: Easy parking, Health shop has wide varitey of things

Cons: Long wait, Smell of smoke blowing in, Coffee tasted odd

This was - I think - the best place we ate on our two week trip to Ireland - with just two more days to go. They had a variety of salads, wraps, burgers and desserts. My kids had the hot dog and falafel burger, I had a delicious salad with falafel and guacamole and hummus, my boyfriend and avocado toast with a poached egg. Perfect place for our mixed family. Very family friendly, good coffee with non-dairy milk and I took a vegan scone to go. I almost wish I would have also had more room for a smoothie 😅

Pros: Lots of vegan options, very friendly, Three choices of non-dairy milk, Dessert looked delicious

Great food!

Found this place while visiting Trim, the staff was super friendly, and very nice. Took the time to explain items on the menu, and even brought over tourism material for us to look at knowing we were from out of town. I had the Smashed Avocado with added Creamy Mushrooms on top, and it was fantastic, was also able to try the veggie burger, and man was it good!

Pros: Everything is vegetarian, I believe everything can be made vegan, Super friendly staff

Best Vegan Cafe

I've been going to Trim N'Healthy since they opened and have never been disappointed.
The owners, John and Charlotte, are friendly and always have time for a chat. The staff are equally friendly and always courteous.
Vegan and vegetarian options are available on the menu and there's usually a special on. My favourites are the Buddha bowl, big vegan breakfast and the vegan burger, my guilty pleasure.
There's a good selection of drinks, including coffees, teas and smoothies. The coffee is a French roast and delicious.
I have brought non-vegan friends and family here and they have all enjoyed the food.

Pros: Plenty of food and drink options. , Friendly staff. , Nice atmosphere.

Cons: I can't go every day 😁

Delicious Food & Friendly Staff

Absolutely loved the almond & lime curry - it was divine!! The banoffi pie was the best I’ve ever had. Everything I had was gluten-free and vegan, even the decaf latte on GF oat milk. Left with a big bag of treats for the next few days. Highly recommend!!!

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Almost everything is gluten-free , Delicious and healthy

Pros: many many delicious vegan options
