Ardcarne Garden Cafe
Two inspiring new chefs at the Ardcarne Garden Café, just outside Boyle, are making customers fall in love with food all over again.
Cliodhna Quinlan and Nessa O’Brolcháin have been friends for years and share a love of good food and travel. They have recently teamed up to become the new chefs at the Ardcarne Garden Cafe, a relaxing beautiful place surrounded by plants and flowers.
The girls have created a whole new exciting menu, a mix of recipes and flavours they have picked up from their travels around the Americas, Asia and Australia, as well as a great variety of traditional dishes. From their heart-warming soups served with freshly home-baked soda bread to their sunny salads and mouth-watering cakes and truffles, there is something for everyone on the menu. There is also a good selection of vegetarian and gluten free options and weekend specials of vegetarian or meat hotpots and stews.
The coffee of choice at the cafe is a rich Arabica blend supplied by French Brulerie, Caron Coffee. It is an award winning coffee and the official choice of the French Presidency at international events. You can also choose from a range of speciality teas, hot chocolate, milk shakes and healthy fruit drinks and smoothies.
Speciality teas are also available to purchase, along with some wonderful honeys and chutneys, to enjoy at home.
Children are especially welcome at the café and there are games and colouring books to keep little hands busy and entertained. There is also a large covered area to enjoy your coffee in the fresh air if you wish, where dogs are welcome too!
All the food at the Ardcarne Garden Café is made on the premises, and salads are created from a delicious selection of leaves and vegetables from the local Knockvicar Organic centre and healthy sprouted chickpeas and pulses. These are all served with a large selection of dressings such as honey, elderberries and balsamic vinegar.
Keep an eye out for upcoming events and workshops in the Cafe and Garden Centre.
Every Friday morning 10.30-11.30 Cliodhna (a classically trained violinist and fiddler) will be hosting a traditional music morning. Come and learn 'A TUNE A WEEK' for only €2. All instruments welcome, beginners and intermediate.
We look forward to seeing you.
