We visited Toons Bridge Dairy Café for lunch on a relaxing Sunday afternoon after a trip to the Prince August Toy Solider Factory. It was one of those ‘Summer’ days that are dry enough to want to be outside but we welcomed the heat lamps and outdoor blankets as we sat.
Toons Bridge Dairy Café in Toons Bridge, Macroom is open weekends and serves fresh West Cork foods and the tastiest stone baked pizzas. Toons Bridge Dairy is the same crowd as the Real Olive Company in the English Market so chances are you already love them! They make and sell many of their own cheeses AND you can even take a cheese making course with them. How cool is that? (I honestly think I would give up chocolate before cheese.)
Anyway, a visit to Toons Bridge Dairy Café will not disappoint. It’s a truly fab place but it’s small so you have to get there early….expeically when the weather isn’t great as inside seating is limited. We were lucky enough to have the weather, and sitting outiside meant the kids could happily run riot and play with others in the secure garden while us grown ups lingered over a glass of wine or a Mountain Man beer!!
The food was amazing and our plates were virtually licked clean. The pizzas were the perfect size for the kids to share making it such a quality lunch at a great price! Opting for a salad plate gave a choice of three of the salads from a selection made fresh that day and you certainly could taste the freshness in the flavours.
I could have spent as much in the shop as we did on our lunch there were so many tasty things to buy and the cutests pasta dishes I have seen in a long time!!!! Toons Bridge Dairy Café is one of the true gems of Cork and the cafe is so worth a trip when you’re down that direction visiting the Toy Solider Factory or Gougane Barra.
