New Look for Farmer Browns
Farmer Browns, founded in 2012 by Limerick sisters, Grace and Finnuala Caffrey, celebrates 10 years in business with new refurbishments featuring cosy eclectic interiors, outdoor terraces perfect for summer cocktails and new menus in its Bath Avenue and Rathmines restaurants in Dublin.
Farmer Browns first opened its doors on Bath Avenue in 2012, a new and upcoming Tech corner of the city. It was named after one of the many farmer’s markets where they sourced their staple menu items, including the black and white pudding from Inch House Tipperary which features on their best-selling dish, The Starvin Marvin. Starting out as a small cafe serving homemade cakes, coffee and pots of tea in a setting similar to Granny’s living room, Farmer Browns became a local favourite with comfort food enthusiasts.
The Caffrey sisters gradually expanded their offering from the farmers-style market they first ran at the weekends selling goods from small producers and farmers including fresh vegetables and jam, later branching out and creating a new weekend menu using the local produce and serving up hearty brunches featuring all the classics from eggs benedict stacked on Dublin’s Bretzel bread to fresh homemade scones. Ten years later, this once little tea cafe is now a multi-location casual eatery for those looking for a satisfying breakfast, lunch or dinner.
Growing up in a Guest House in Limerick City, great food and hospitality is embedded in both Grace and Finnula’s DNA and has always been a big part of their family. Both sisters went on to study hospitality at Shannon College of Hotel Management and took the same career path with a dream to one day open their own family restaurant in Dublin. Their mum, dad and brother are all chefs whom they looked up to.
Farmer Browns now has four locations across South Dublin including Bath Avenue, Rathmines, Clonskeagh and Kilternan and offers a daily catering service for offices, parties and events both on and off-site.
