Whether you’re meeting for business or pleasure, have the kids with you, or you’re on your own, the café has something for everyone, and is the perfect place to relax and unwind after visiting the galleries, with free wifi and first rate amenities.

We offer a fresh, seasonal menu and a friendly welcome from our helpful team. You can eat in the Atrium, with its gorgeous natural light and charming exposed stone walls; chose the Foyer, with a range of activities for the kids; or select something from the counter to takeaway. The Café stocks a wide range of hot and cold food, including sandwiches, wraps, salads and soups, and a large variety of hot and cold drinks.

The Model hosts regular events, where you can combine great dining and artistic experiences. Join us for our Informal Music Afternoon, on the first Sunday of every month, from 1pm to feed both your mind and body!

The Model Café is located north of the river close to the Sligo University Hospital and IT Sligo, but just minutes from O'Connell street and the town centre.  For those travelling longer distances, there is ample carparking right outside the door.

We hope you enjoy your visit!
