My oldest friend in the world and mother of my gorgeous god-daughter Abbie, Lisa Fair, gets in touch with this reliable recommendation. I’m hearing good things from other locals:
Popped into Carrickmines at the weekend to do some shopping, but the cold drove us into the mall where we found heaven in a new little eatery called Barry and Browne’s. The fresh, homemade and well presented big portions were what my cold little family needed to heat up. The staff member who served us was so friendly, efficient and so cheerful which made the whole experience for us. When we got out bill it was so reasonable: €17.50 for two giant adult portions of heavenly food, a child’s meal and drink. Much less than we have paid before for soggy bread and buns in other cafes in Carrickmines.
The icing on the cake for us with Barry and Brownes was the kiddie’s play area tucked away in the corner of the room. This is a brilliant family/baby friend cafe with great food, friendly staff and a cash strapped friendly price tag. 10/10 in my book. I could write a full page on the positives of this place.
Readers, can you recommend any other good spots to bring kids?
