Nude Food

London-born Louise Clark’s smashing café restaurant & deli just off the square in Dungarvan town centre has a loyal following of appreciative foodies who, for the six years before she opened here (in 2008), had been visiting her Naked Lunch stall at the farmers’ market she helped to found, happily queueing for the simple tasty food she has made her calling cards, such as homemade spicy lamb burgers, home baked breads and cakes.


Louise also had a successful outside catering business, and now the various strands of her previous experience work together brilliantly in this vibrant little foodie hotspot.


The interesting shopfront with the cheerful Illy logo in the window (usually a hint of good things to come) draws passers-by, and a quick peep reveals all the signs of dedication – a cheery big naive painting catches your eye initially and then the homely interior, which is just packed with delights.


The café is at the back but there are plenty of distractions en route - high stools invite you to stop for a coffee and bite from the deli counter while you take in the great range of freshly made and artisan products on sale, including a wide choice of patés, cheeses and preserves; baking is big here and the sweet-toothed will find an irresistible choice of scones, cakes and buns alongside gorgeous breads, both ‘café-baked’ and from Declan Ryan’s renowned Arbutus bakery in Cork.


Everything has real homemade flavour, with the goodness of the ingredients making for some memorable treats.


The café (which also has an attractive covered terrace for outdoor dining) is served by an open kitchen, with menus offering a wide range of options for different times of day.


But, whether you drop in for a casual bite - one of their scrumptious sandwiches or salads (Gubbeen cheese sandwich with roasted cherry tomatoes and herb mayo, perhaps, or Ardsallagh goats cheese salad) - or go for a full meal, you’ll find the same integrity; simply written menus, sprinkled with the names that guarantee impeccable provenance: O’Flynn’s Cumberland style sausages, for example, Frank Hederman’s smoked salmon, and a rainbow selection of farmhouse cheeses.


Try the Irish Stew, made with lean and flavoursome Comeragh mountain lamb, and get your companion to order the chicken & tarragon pie, made with ‘Bornfree’ free range chicken – just taste the difference!


Children are well looked after (with a special menu offering ‘real food’ for under eights) and, although most people probably think of this as a bustling daytime place, the atmosphere is transformed by candlelight in the evening when the menu expands to include more substantial dishes and a range of sociable sharing platters (antipasta platter, mezze plate, artisan cheese board), and the drinks focus moves from fruit juices (the area is known for apple production), herbal teas and coffees to the excellent wines supplied by Bubble Brothers of Cork.


Nude Food may be small, but it packs a mighty punch.

On a slip road at the top of the main street, just off the busy thoroughfare, siblings Elaine and JD Spearman's bakery and tea room is a charming old-style place to take a break for a bite to eat and 'freshly ground coffee or a grand cup of tea'. It has all the friendli ...
