Farm­gate Café is a unique venue, pro­vid­ing a relaxed atmos­phere in Ireland’s old­est cov­ered food mar­ket, for over 25 years.
We cre¬≠ate menus that reflect the sea¬≠son and our region. We source the fresh¬≠est ingre¬≠di¬≠ents from the Food Stalls of the English Market, and work closely with trusted small-‚Äčscale mar¬≠ket gar¬≠den¬≠ers, as well as the best arti¬≠san food and wine pro¬≠duc¬≠ers we can find.

Centuries old tra¬≠di¬≠tional, sea¬≠sonal, regional, even ‚Äėfor¬≠got¬≠ten‚Äô foods are at the core of the Farm¬≠gate ethos, and also form a vis¬≠i¬≠ble link between the menu and the won¬≠der¬≠ful array of pro¬≠duce down¬≠stairs. This allows Farm¬≠gate Caf√© to pro¬≠vide a uniquely Irish eat¬≠ing expe¬≠ri¬≠ence both reflect¬≠ing and (we hope) play¬≠ing a small role in a vibrant Irish food cul¬≠ture truly embrac¬≠ing how good indige¬≠nous ingre¬≠di¬≠ents and food prod¬≠ucts are.
