One of our favourite places to go for pizza in Cork City is Uncle Pete’s on Paul Street. ThisIrishGirl and I first went there on one of our girlie dates and after careful consideration we decided it was time to share this little gem with the boys.
Uncle Pete’s is a small cafe that feels familiar the second you enter. The friendly staff is never too busy to make recommendations and chat with customers. Every time we are there it seems there is a balanced mix of tourists and locals. There are even a few faces we see there most times we visit so Uncle Pete’s certainly has its loyal regulars. It’s one of those places where everyone is chatting across tables to each other and including the kids. (and they fill their wine to the brim!)
The menu is simple yet varied with pasta, burgers, sandwiches, traditional Irish dishes and of course PIZZA! There is also a decent number of gluten-free options if you need. Uncle Pete’s is great value for money. Kids pizza’s were less than €5, with 8inch pizzas mostly under €10. For 2 kids pizzas, 2 8-inch pizzas, a side order of chips and two glasses of milk we spent €32.
The pizzas do not disappoint. I have to be honest we haven’t tried anything else on the menu. However, on our last visit there we noticed at least FOUR parties came in to enquire about the Irish Stew. Unfortunately the stew had run out much to the disappointment of some.
Have you been to Uncle Pete’s? Let us know in the comments what you think of the place and if you’ve tried the stew! We’ll be back soon to try it since it sends people in asking for more!!
We love to eat out as a family – what local places do you love to bring the kids for a meal?
