Comprised of a gourmet food shop, deli and restaurant, Jerome and Bobby McAteer have purposefully created a space where you can get everything all under one roof: a place to shop, grab a coffee or treat to take away or have a bite to eat.
The gourmet food shop stocks an excellent range of essentials, treats, ready meals, organic veg and freshly baked breads, with plenty of Irish artisan products being sold.
The deli offers fresh sandwiches made to order, soups, salads and desserts. Slimming World meals are also available for takeaway or in the restaurant and are a popular option.
The restaurant menu is extensive and is sure to cater for whatever you fancy, whether you want to sit down for a quick cuppa and a homemade pastry or take your time over a hot dinner, and everything in between. Whatever you choose, you won’t be disappointed by the good, solid cooking.
Light bites, wraps, salads, a huge range of hot or cold sandwiches, pizzas, small hot dishes and ‘big bites’ hot mains are all on offer, not to mention all the homemade options for dessert, like a tempting Baileys and white chocolate gateau or chocolate pecan tart.
Or for anyone who loves a thick, juicy burger with plenty of flavour, you can build your own by picking and choosing from a list of optional toppings and it comes with a side of chunky chips as thick and golden as Jenga blocks.
Desserts are a highlight here, so factor this in when ordering - a special of baked apple stuffed with walnuts and raisins, for example, is pure comfort, while chocolate pecan tart is a decadent treat.
There’s a small wine and beer list, with all wines available by the glass or bottle, and a good selection of tea and coffee to round out your meal.
The Lunchbox Express is particularly good value, at around €7.95 for a sandwich and skinny fries plus your choice of a cup of soup or a salad, and they have a Lunch Bag special for takeaway at about €5.95 for a soup or sandwich plus a bottle of water.
And as if all that wasn’t enough, they also offer a catering service and a range of hampers.
A real gem and well worth visiting, whether you want to stock up on artisan products in the shop, grab something to take home from the deli or sit down for a meal – or all three.
