Delicious food and fabulous service

Both eat in and take-out food options are creative, varied, delicious and for myself as a vegan, refreshingly original. The atmosphere is warm and friendly but leaves lots of room for privacy and quiet dining. The staff are cheerful, helpful, flexible (they made me a custom wrap that wasn't on the... read more

I am a fairly regular customer in Kennedy's in Raheny and it never disappoints. They do a great selection of sandwiches and their soup and salads are delicious. They have specials every day although I've never ordered them. The granary bread they use is delicious. Coffees are really good and service is always friendly and attentive. They do a lovely...

Several branches in the north Dublin, the one in Clontarf is particularly lovely. Situated on a sunny corner on the sea front, with glass doors that are left open on warm days, it's a pleasure to sit in and look at the world go by in this village type atmosphere. The food is always delicious, freshly made sandwiches with their... More

We had brunch here on Sunday morning for the first time – it was busy (good sign!). We were seated downstairs (seating was small & tight) but staff were very friendly & smiley. We ordered two specials which was smoked salmon scrambled eggs, tomato, rocket salad & lots of granary toast. Service was slow which you could forgive as they... More
