Fresh and tasty

I have been here a few times and have to say the food is great , very fresh and tasty. I find the staff very friendly, nice cosy seating area and a great pot of tea. Sandwiches start at €4.95 very reasonable.

The cakes here are delicious and the staff are very pleasant. It's a small cafe but nice to sit outside on a sunny day on your visit to Fair view park.

This was a much needed addition to Raheny. I love the food, but I find the staff extremely hit and miss. Some absolutely bend over back wards for you others are just lacking, rush you out of the place, never come back to you etc, abit annoying if you get toasat with no butter, tea with no milk.. I feel... More

I don't live in Dublin but have made a habit of eating lunch here whenever I'm passing through as I have friends living nearby. The food is always of a very high standard - simple, fresh and tasty and the staff are extremely helpful and friendly. Highly recommended.

I was surprised how busy this place was... Tight narrow wobbly tables and over priced dishes... I've enjoyed soup & ciabatta along with tea (Herbal) or coffee (cappuccino etc.) for €10... Recently... Great value, however Kennedys reckon for a poorly presented ciabatta at 5c less than €7 and a herbal tea at €3... I think someone is seeing the Celtic... More

All feedback is welcome and we have always taken some learning from critical feedback. In this case, however, the review - which criticises the service, the furniture, the pricing and our produce - is so imbalanced as to make it difficult to take anything from it. More importantly, there are a number of inaccuracies in the review that need to... More

I visited Kennedy's in Fairview when in Dublin last year visiting friends nearby. There was a fantastic selection of fresh salads and desserts. Everything looked delicious. I had hummus, salads, olives etc and it came with their own brown bread which was lovely. I bought some to take home as well as some pasta and olive oil. They have a... More

Great food and coffee and food products and an excellent amenity in Fairview, however service is lacking slightly. The wait stuff don't seem to have any urgency about them, and the odd time when I pop in late they're only delighted to tell me I can't order anything. I really feel it's not living up to it's potential and could... More
