Sligo Food Trail has released the first in a new video series, celebrating Sligo’s local cafés and restaurants.
Called Café Culture, the series will feature a different café along the Sligo Food Trail in each video.
Pudding Row in Easkey is the first café documented. Opened five years ago by Easkey native Dervla James and her husband Johny Conlon, Pudding Row has become a destination café on the Wild Atlantic Way.
Dervla has brought her garnered in Dublin’s Cake Café, The Pepper Pot, and a stint in Germany, to this cosy café and bakery. Every one of the breads and cakes are baked in house every day. They are committed to local, organic produce where possible using Carrowgarry Farm for organic fruit, veg and salad leaves; and Andarl farm in Mayo provide free range pork and bacon. Free range eggs come from Woodville Farm and award winning local honey from Zoe Lally in Rathlee.
Pudding Row has received awards including Cafe of the Year in the Irish Restaurant Awards, Vogue Magazine Editor’s Choice, McKenna Guide’s Café of the Year and an appearance on the McKenna Guide’s Top 100 Restaurants every year since opening.
Their signature dish is a pear and bacon sandwich on homemade white bread.
The videos will be released regularly on social media and will be available on www.sligofoodtrail.ie.
