We found ourselves in Donegal town around lunchtime, and as we were hungry we decided to have lunch at the Blueberry Tea room & restaurant. And going by the amount of customers who were on that particular mid-week day in the Blueberry, it looks like it is the place to be in Donegal town.
The interior is quirky and colourful. From the teacup wallpaper to the clock wall, there is loads to look at. But my eyes were glancing on the daily specials, and the chicken and bacon sandwich with BBQ sauce sounded delicious. Dolores opted for the chicken pasta. The friendly waitress looked after us, and before we knew it we were served are large plates.
The pasta was huge, came with garlic bread, broccoli and a separate pot with Parmigiano Reggiano slices. And it was great, the chicken was hidden underneath the pasta and was plentiful. My chicken and bacon sandwich was devine, and where I always have a great appetite, I was struggling to finish the huge sandwich which was stuffed with a huge amount of chicken and bacon. And that is not all, it came with a fresh salad and chips. And if that wasn't enough, the chef came around asking if I wanted more chips, now that is what I call customer service. And I declined nicely, just as I was struggling through my fabulous huge portion.
In our opinion, the Blueberry tea room and restaurant is a brilliant spot to talk to the locals, eat a great lunch and just enjoy the Donegal hospitality.
