The Mint Leaf

In a modern building in the centre of Dunboyne, this family friendly café is simple and colourful in style - clean lines, unfussy table settings and a high-ceilinged ground floor area which overlooks a large patio give it a light, bright atmosphere.

The food is uncomplicated and good, and both the menu and the enthusiastic staff are full of information on its preparation and origin.

Various specials are offered and simple is often best - for example, a deliciously wholesome beef & Guinness stew served with really good bread , which is offered in generous quantities before food arrives.

Dinner is served in more traditional surroundings upstairs on the small balcony on Thursday to Saturday evenings; a more elaborate menu is offered, and steak on a stone is a speciality. Classics on the wine list come into their own in the evening - a few wines are offered by the glass on the downstairs menu, and the full wine list is also available during the day on request.

The service is unfussy and family-friendly, and very fair prices make this a firm favourite with locals.
