The Sage Cafe

On most days Mike & Siobhan Hogan's centrally located café near the Milk Market has queues of people waiting to lunch on their healthy food, and it’s easy to see why.


From the green and white striped awning (which has tables underneath on fine days) to the cool greeny-white of the interior, there is an air of clean, green calm about the place. It’s roomy and light, with some banquette seating around the walls, a few contemporary oil paintings and wooden tables.


They do lovely fresh-flavoured lunch dishes - an eclectic collection, including Caesar salad in two sizes, great soups with homemade brown bread or spelt bread, aromatic oriental dishes, lovely salads – and great sandwiches including a rustic baguette.


Through the afternoon, when the savoury choices will have run out, there will be great home bakes, including scones, iced carrot cake, gooey chocolate cake, baked orange cheesecake, banana and walnut cake and almond cake, maybe served with a dollop of whipped cream and a giant strawberry. 


There's a little children's menu (the usual suspects, but nicely made), and some gluten-free choices too. All breads, desserts, jams and chutneys are made in-house and, although suppliers are not name checked on the menu, there's an overall commitment to Irish meats and locally sourced fish. It's a quality-driven kind of place.

Seats 50. Food served Mon-Sat, 9-5pm; L 12-4pm. Children welcome (high chair); toilets wheelchair accessible; air conditioning. Closed Sun, Bank Hols, Christmas week. MasterCard, Visa, Laser. abbreviations
