Steam Café

Although it’s a bit away from the main town centre, there’s plenty of reason to visit the Station House Courtyard, with its interesting exhibits and classy shopping.  Interesting, classy food too at this bright and welcoming daytime restaurant, where you will find lots of familiar sounding items on the menu but often with a twist - and with that special fresh, home cooked flavour. 


Open from breakfast onwards, you could call in for an early energy kick of drop scones (pancakes, of the smaller thicker kind) with maple syrup and optional extras such as eggs or bacon, or maybe just a lovely freshly baked scone (with butter jam and cream) and a cup of freshly ground coffee.


Lunchtime brings creative light meals - realistic about the Irish weather, they’re strong on the cheering, flavoursome soups that are so welcome on a chilly day (traditional leek & potato or curried parsnip, perhaps, or fragrant carrot & coriander), but also do gorgeous salads in colourful combinations with loads of flavour and crunch.


Creamy goats cheese with beetroot and caramelised walnuts is a favourite, or maybe a nice take on Waldorf salad that’s made with blue cheese and walnuts with caramelised apple - or lip smackingly good smoked chicken salad with orange & toasted almonds. Wraps and panini a-plenty too, and regulars love that there’s something different on offer every day.


And great home baking means lots of cakes and dessert treats too - a luscious raspberry roulade perhaps, or tangy lemon tart, and ever-popular chocolate biscuit cake - and some are available gluten free for coeliacs. 


All this and much more - you’ll be glad you found it.
