Meeting a mate for brekkie or lunch this week?
With free parking aplenty and a super convenient location on Forge Hill, Dwyer’s Garden Café is launching its new menus on Wednesday.
Open for breakfast, lunch and Saturday brunch at Dwyers Electrical Super Store, the dining room is bright, spacious, and well-ventilated – everything we require in a meet-up location at the moment.
It’s kid-friendly too, so you can rest assured your little dining buddies will be well catered for and there’s plenty of room for prams and buggies.

So what’s on the menu?
Comforting classics are the order of the day for breakfast, from Brioche French Toast slathered in peanut butter and fruit compote to Warm Milk Porridge topped with honey and mixed seeds – just what the doctor ordered on a dark and dreary January morning.
The Smashed Avocado on Sourdough Toast is a solid healthy option (you can add bacon and egg if you’re feeling adventurous).
There’s a tempting selection of Sesame Bagels with Cream Cheese to choose from also – each one topped with your choice of Ballycotton Smoked Salmon, streaky bacon, or avocado and chia seeds.
Served from 9am to 3pm every Saturday, brunch at Dwyer’s Garden Café has something for everyone.
With layers of lush organic yoghurt topped with crunchy granola and fresh berry compote, the Granola Sundae is the healthy way to spoil yourself at the end of a long week, but first you’ll have to resist the lure of the Croque Monsieur; the classic French toasted sandwich with baked ham, raclette cheese, and béchamel.
Our advice? Make it a Croque Madame by adding a fried egg.
There’s more eggy goodness to be found on the Something Poached menu: Poached eggs served on a toasted English muffin with silky hollandaise sauce.
You can order anything on the brunch menu as a half portion for the kids at half the price.
Treat yourself midweek
If your New Year’s resolution is to savour your lunch instead of wolfing it down at your desk, leave the Tupperware at home and hit the Dwyer’s sandwich bar.
Specials include the Asian Style Pulled Pork sandwich (slow-cooked shredded pork, spicy peanut rayu mayo, baby gem lettuce, crispy fried onions, micro-coriander, and pickled veggies) and a New York-style Reuben with a Cork twist; O’Connell’s spiced beef, sauerkraut, gherkin, Emmental cheese and Russian dressing on sourdough.
The Vegan One (a hefty plant-based creation stuffed with homemade hummus, roasted red pepper, grilled aubergine and courgette, sweet pickled carrot, rocket, and spring onion) is a filling meat-free option that’ll essentially get you your ‘five a day’ in one tasty meal.
They make a mean Halloumi Burger too, topped with black olive and roast garlic tapenade and sundried tomato pesto and served with a portion of sweet potato fries and tzatziki dip.
The Ballycotton seafood chowder is served with Irish soda bread for dipping and there’s a mouthwatering list of salads, quiches and soups made fresh using the best of local ingredients too (check the board for daily newness).
Breakfast is served from 9am to 12pm, with lunch available from noon until 4pm (last orders at 3:45pm). Brunch is served from 9am to 3pm on Saturdays.
