Summervilles of Greystones

Situated just off the main thoroughfare in Greystones, this attractive daytime café has an eye-catching yellow and blue exterior and outdoor seating surrounded by neat hedging.

With a high ceiling and large front windows, the café is bright and airy, and contemporary wooden furniture blends well with an old-fashioned brick fireplace, where a log fire burns on cold winter days. Alternatively, on a warm summer day, the paved garden is a riot of flowers, with tables and chairs arranged to get the best of the sun.

Since Niamh Tait and Katie Doyle took over Summervilles there’s a definite ‘young’ feel to the menu and daily specials are displayed on a board on the counter while the large blackboard gives the regular dishes.

The most popular dish is chicken Summerville, unusually made with a mix of cornflakes and nuts on top, and specials include dishes such as a Mediterranean tart, baked salmon and spicy chicken tortilla, served with two salads (from a good selection).

Good home baking is a strength and desserts such as pear and almond tart, bakewell tart and a daily crumble are appetisingly displayed - and hard to resist. Everything is tasty, well-presented and served by cheerful, well-trained staff who know the menu well.

Wine is mostly by the quarter bottle but there’s a good choice of teas, both regular and herbal and coffees.

This is one of Greystones’ most popular eating places, and it’s easy to see why.

Seats 45 (outdoors, 60). Open daily, 9am-5.30pm. Children welcome (high chair). Closed 25 Dec. MasterCard, Visa, Laser. abbreviations
