"We don’t do fast food” says the blackboard on the wall at this friendly café in Cong. “We do fresh wholesome Irish food as quick as we can!” That sums it up, really. The Hungry Monk is just the kind of place you want to break up a long day’s sightseeing: simple cooking, light lunches and snacks, served in a warm cottage atmosphere. The lunch menu consists mostly of tasty sandwiches and salads, creatively prepared with local ingredients. Or you could just linger over a cup of coffee and a sweet, such as the delicious cheesecake. The Hungry Monk doesn’t serve dinner, but snacks and light meals are served until late afternoon.
