Skerries - Coffee 'n Cake

The town of Skerries is spoilt for choice for its size when it comes to eating out. There are several fine restaurants, pub diners and take-aways and then of course the coffee shops. Not to play them down- they are not just coffee shops as you will see here.

Seasons on Strand Street sell the most mouth watering cakes (see photo below if you don't believe me.) When I visited the other day there was fresh crusty boules and savoury pastries as well as the oh-so-tempting cakes. I am told they serve evening meals Thursday to Saturday as well.

Across the road and along a bit from Seasons is Olive. Olive does a fabulous range of baked biscuits, cakes and cheesecake as you can see from the photo, but they also have to-die-for fresh deli; pesto, hummus, tapenade, cheese and meats. My fave here is the sharing plates of deli meats and the dipping trays with olives.

Photo: Anyone fancy a FREE CAKE ,SCONE, TART, PASTRY or  MUFFIN at Olive?! Simply purchase two coffees at Olive this Wednesday 26th or Thursday 27th and you can avail of this lovely offer! So why not meet a friend at Olive?! Facebook and Twitter fans only! :-)

Parachute around the corner on Thomas Hand Street is my favourite to bag the comfy brown leather sofa with a cup of coffee and the newspaper. Serving great value breakfasts, bagels and scones with jam and cream. The offer the other day was sausage sandwich with tea or coffee for €4- can't argue with that!
