PASCAL - Founder & Managing Director

Born in France and raised in England, I've got a straight forward sense of humour and hint of occasional wit that, to be honest, do sometimes land me in trouble. 😬

I arrived in Galway back in 2005. Having worked in the hospitality industry most of my working life, I soon to came to realise that working for someone else just wasn't my cup of… well, coffee!
I always believed in my own compass, and looking back now, may have been a right handful to my ex-employers - forgive me for my creative rebellions.

After a couple of years operating as a franchisee for a well known Galway company, I had my epiphany: there's only one way to do business - the Pascal way.

So, in April of 2011, Pascal Coffee House was born, in Edward Square, Galway, followed by Lower Abbeygate Street in 2015.

To mention the personal touch would be an understatement.

From the menus on the tables, to the photos on the wall. From the website you're browsing right now, to the Logo above the door, and the verging-on-country Spotify playlist. Everything, and I mean everything, is a product of my own creation. No graphic designers or professional photographers. No website developers or Marketing Managers.

MARTA - General Manager

Meet Marta, our amazing General Manager and the heartbeat of Pascal Coffee House! From Poland, Marta's not just an extraordinary chef, she's also the "mama" of our team.

Marta's got a knack for balancing compassion with a bit of tough love. Her polish straightforwardness might come across as blunt sometimes, but it's always wrapped in genuine care and affection. Staff love her for her warmth, and the occasional (but well-meaning) stern look 🤨

She's even had a brief, but unforgettable, appearance on the Polish Masterchef series, a testament to her culinary prowess. And as if this wasn't enough, she's also my life partner, adding a special touch of love and laughter to our journey together.

So, next time you visit Pascal Coffee House, know that it's Marta's magic at work, keeping everything running smoothly and deliciously.

Together, we have an obsession with Coffee - Speciality Coffee - and a passion for good, honest, unpretentious food. Every item on our menu has been meticulously crafted by us, with the help of our kids - Charlie, Harry, Dominika and Sonia - to please our taste buds, and we guarantee yours won't be disappointed either.

We pride ourselves on the ability to surround ourselves with a top-notch crew. We personally hand pick every staff member, valuing personality over resumes. The result? The online reviews speak for themselves. A friendly, laid back, but always on spot-on atmosphere.

As well as our passion for Pascal Coffee House, we share our love of Galway with the Algarve region of Portugal. Having recently dipped our toes into the holiday rental property market, we spend a substantial amount of time there, putting the "Pascal" stamp on your next holiday. So if you fancy a break from the infamous Galway weather, pack your flip-flops and head to! ☀️

But for the time being, swing on by to Edward Square or Lower Abbeygate Street and give our claim to "The Best Pancakes in Town" a hearty taste. We can't wait to see you!

Pascal & Marta ❤️
