Ground & Co, a new approach to coffee, cake and café dining in Salthill

Ground & Co have just added another reason to head for the sea in Salthill. Entrepreneur and well-known café owner Kevin Nugent brings his newly opened café, Ground & Co to Salthill just beside the Galway Aquarium.


Inspired by a trip to New Zealand last year (the land of the flat white and exceptional coffee cake), Kevin and his team created the Ground & Co café experience.

With the kitchen being lead by head chef Leroy Marshall including an in-house chef and pastry chef, the food offering at this new location is second to none.

Expect early power breakfasts fuelled by creamy oats, eggs your way, freshly squeezed juices, herbal teas and coffee of course, or grab it all to go! Relax into a lengthy brunch or mid-morning freshly baked scone or sample some delicious sweet bread. Lunch at Ground & Co is all about the sourdough sambos, power bowls and old school classics.


Ground & Co is open early with Breakfast and Brunch bringing sourdough breads with local butter or peanut butter and jams to the table for something savoury, sweet and an all-round favourite. Try Galway free range eggs sunny side up with grilled tomato, feta cheese, flat cap mushroom, wilted greens, and Ground roasties or enjoy the breakfast of champions with porridge pots made with the milk you love, oat, soy, almond, coconut layered with topping of your choice, berry compote, seeds, cinnamon, fresh banana, honey and local preserves.

Lunchtime is all about salads and sambos, the Ground Mezze plate-falafels, Hummus, pickled cucumber, cabbage, and toasted pittas flips that menu and celebrates the veggies. The sourdough sandwiches at Ground are a satisfying mix of local produce on freshly in house baked breads.

Choose from a warm goats cheese, leaves, beetroot and balsamic or try Ali’s Fish Market Butty on Bla with rocket and Tartare sauce or of course the more traditional and reliables like the Ground 8 0z steak, onion, garlic aioli, rocket, roast potatoes where you can choose between ciabatta or on a plate, also you can add a fried egg. Decisions!!

One of the menu highlights is the veggie bean burger with hGroundimage1alloumi, crushed avocado and pesto all served with one of Grounds sides, a chunky portion of chips, sweet potato fries or a selection of leaves.

Sweet treats at Ground are all made in house, the desserts, pastries and cakes will change everyday so checking the specials board is a must as soon as you pop in! 

Ground & Co is open 7 days a week, Monday to Friday from 7:30am to 6pm and from 9am to 6pm on the weekend and Bank Holidays.
