Galway’s food community is known far and wide for its dedication to serving local produce to the highest possible standard, and the Westend’s very own plant-based paradise - Greens & Co. - is a stellar example of that. Having recently entered into the world of retail with a stunning mix of locally produced bits and pieces, you’re going to want to pencil in a trip to number 4 Henry Street for some last minute stocking stuffers.
Greens & Co. is a 100% vegan eatery that keeps its impact on the environment as minimal as possible. The majority of the items on their current all-day menu are made in-house and are the epitome of good, clean food. From the veuben sandwich and crispy mac & cheese balls to the tofish & chips and hot chick burger, the menu is a testament to just how tasty plant-based grub can be. Oh, and there’s a reason why their pancakes quickly became famous around these parts - loaded with caramelised banana, hazelnut crumb and maple syrup, they’re definitely drool worthy!
Located in what was once a butcher shop, the irony is not lost on the Greens team. Locally sourced and wholly organic right down to their tea, coffee and homemade cheese, Greens & Co. pay minute attention to detail right across the board. As the name suggests, they try to be as green as possible, keeping all cleaning products eco-friendly, all paper recycled and all containers biodegradable. They're leaving as little waste behind them as possible and is truly commendable.
Their dedication to local producers has recently been extended to an eclectic mix of materials sitting pretty on the shelves of Greens & Co.. From luxury hand sanitisers that smell sensational to earrings and masks made by members of their very own team, they’ve got quite the array of offerings. Amongst the collection of products, you’ll find the likes of White Witch Connemara skincare, Dr Clare Apothecary paraphernalia, art from a local photographer and the coffee bean collection from Nícarra Jewellery, as well as some of their own range of kimchi, sauerkraut, vegan desserts and a whole lot more.
From the minute you step inside the dark interiors of Greens & Co., you will see the light. With an exceptional team of staff ready and waiting to take care of you and show you a world of plant-based perfection with lots of gluten free alternatives, you’ll leave with a broadened palate and an appreciation for all things vegan. Open for walk-ins from 12-6 Monday to Thursday and 12-8 Friday to Sunday with weekend booking advised, the Greens team really are the dream team.
