Mandarins Clementines Satsumas Tangerines

A Mandarin is a fruit. Clementines, Tangerines and Satsumas are types of mandarin. Just so we’re all clear on that one. (I actually had to look it up). Whichever one you manage to get your hands on they are at their best this time of year. Well we’re actually coming towards the end of their glory […]

Oh Sleep

Myles O Reilly made a lovely video of Lisa Hannigan singing  at ‘The End Is Nigh’ Gig back in December…….   HERE IT IS      


We make a lot of eggs. In general. This is what they normally look like: Not this: This is what they look like when your egg shelf collapses in the kitchen

Hello 2013

We’re back open on Monday 7th after a lovely two week break. Jaysus it was well needed, and well deserved for all our staff. That mental and physical relief is so important. The Italians are divils for closing up shop for weeks on end to take their holidays. Well they’re damn right, it certainly rejuvenates […]

The End is Nigh

Well if it’s the end of the world we may as well all go down together!

We’ll be celebrating la fin du monde on 20/12/2012 with some Mayan inspired food, and wonderfully beautiful music from Aidan Crowley, 3epekano and Lisa Hannigan.

Deirdre and Norman

Deirdre and Norman have been farming their land in Carney, Kildare organically since 1989. We’ve known them since 2008 when we first started to run the cafe in the co-op and have been meaning to go down to visit them pretty much since then. We finally managed the trip last week (always a pleasure to get out of the city on a really cold crisp sunny winter day).

We’ve set up weekly deliveries to the fumbally with whatever they have in season, this week we had the pleasure of some leeks, parsnips and some amazing cavolo nero. Hopefully some bok choi on the way next week and some sweet as hell beetroot.


We bought a fig tree back in July, on which one solitary, proud fig has been maturing for the last four months. It finally gave way and fell last week.
