About Us

Following the slow food ethos of “good, clean and fair”, it’s our pleasure to offer simple, honest food that is high in quality and rich in flavour.

McCarthy’s farm in Ovens Co Cork is the starting point for The Parlour Cafe. We wanted to bring the best of wholesome country living to the heart of the city and create a welcoming space where you can relax, have a coffee or enjoy a real tasty meal with exceptional quality and value.

On the farm we produce our own award winning beef which is farmed on an open airy green pasture environment. We look at the preparation and cooking of beef as a bit of an art form, so it’s all slow roasting, blending for flavour and expert preparation at The Parlour Cafe.

But it’s not just all about the food. It’s also about creating the right environment in which you can enjoy food healthily. The Parlour Café will feature well known artists for your visual pleasure and also you will have an opportunity to purchase some great artwork. Art is a huge interest to proprietor Sharon McCarthy who also paints using painting knives and oils, you will get to see some artwork of Sharon from time to time. The Bookcase will shelve books for our customers to browse while they experience our café menu or simply sip on a cuppa. Daily newspapers for early morning read and free WiFi is available for our customers.

We’d love you to drop in to our Parlour to experience the many different aspects of our Café. Great simple honest food using fresh foods only, home reared beef, fresh baking daily, great coffee, art and books – it’s a haven for foodies and art lovers. Our crew at The Parlour Café look forward to making your experience memorable and we are happy to guide you through our menu and answer any questions you may have.
