The Happy Pear

Twins David and Stephen Flynn run this cheerfully ethical vegetable shop, with smoothie bar and café in Greystones. If that all sounds a lot for a vegetable shop, it is, but the food is simple and tasty.


The menu changes every day and, from their extensive recipe bank, they offer two soups and main courses along with ten salads. Try a delicious salad of sprouted mung bean, watercress, radicchio in a pumpkin seed & parsley dressing, for example: very good. 


They're mad into sprouting seeds at The Happy Pear and Stephen and David' s younger brother, Darragh Flynn, is the head Grower on their Living Foods sprout farm nearby in Newcastle, Co. Wicklow. Wheatgrass, known for its health-promoting qualities, is the star of the show - and they also supply to Donnybrook Fair.  


A telling detail about the Flynn brothers is that they run their van on local rapeseed oil. Now that is walking the walk.

Seats 40 (outdoors, 30); Vegetarian; food served daily 9-5.30pm (from 10.30 am Sun & bank hols); house wine about €17. Children welcome (high chair); toilets wheelchair accessible. Online shop (orders over €50). MasterCard, Visa, Laser. abbreviations
