As a relative newbie to Portlaoise I made it my business to find Tynan’s after reading a number of reviews and regularly being told that it was the place the locals favored. I have to say I have never been disappointed. Everything is so fresh, and very obviously homemade. The staff are top class and really go out of their way to make sure you’re looked after and get everything you need. Last week I was asked if I wanted my ‘usual’ coffee which really impressed me. I’ve had breakfast, lunch, and just coffee and dessert and everything has been really good. Definitely go early as it gets very busy. A vegetarian friend tells me there’s nowhere like it for variety. Lunch options are good and it’s great to get food that you know is only good ingredients, well cooked as they should be. Really homemade but better! The atmosphere is good and the setting is really different. When you see the same faces on return visits it’s obvious this crew is doing something very right. Owner is regularly about, working hard and always a friendly word. If you like really good food, you won’t be disappointed here.
