The Pantry

Right in the heart of this thriving town of Nenagh, on a corner of a small but select shopping precinct, you’ll find a Badger & Dodo coffee sign alerting you to the presence of Grainne Moylan's bakery-café, long a favourite eating place for young and old, but now housed in bright and attractive modern premises. In good weather you can sit outside beside a paved courtyard, away from the traffic, otherwise you find a table inside, which is bright and cheerful with a mural on one wall.


Somehow managing to combine selling home baked bread, quiches, cakes and gateaux alongside providing hot lunches, breakfasts, brunches and afternoon teas, The Pantry is a buzzing hive of activity at all times.


Aside from the hot specials of the day (typically roast beef, salmon in a white wine and chive sauce, roast chicken), you can choose from a range of warm salads (pear, goats’ cheese, pine nuts, beetroot and salad leaves, for example), or go for something quaintly called the ‘hot belly’ experience, where you choose a roll or a bagel and then wait for it to be filled to bursting with all kinds of goodies.


Vegetarians are always catered for – pasta with freshly made tomato and basil sauce liberally sprinkled with parmesan, perhaps – and those with a sweet tooth will be happy with the wide range of home made pavlovas, coffee cakes, tarts and crumbles.


While home baking and their own range of preserves are specialities, there's a real sense of the surrounding food community and many of the delicious dishes offered showcase local foods - Crowe's Farm sausages and rashers in the breakfast, for example.


Offering simple, quality food at modest prices, this a really enjoyable place to take a break.
