We have some incredible cafés on Sligo Food Trail and we want to tell the world about them. Pudding Row in Easkey is first up and as you can see from this new video, it’s got lots going for it. Opened five years ago by Easkey native Dervla James and her husband Johny Conlon, Pudding Row has become a destination café on the Wild Atlantic Way.

Dervla has brought all her experience garnered in Dublin’s iconic Cake Café, The Pepper Pot and a stint in Germany, to this cosy, café and bakery. All the tempting breads and cakes are baked in house every day. They are proudly committed to local, organic produce where possible using Carrowgarry Farm for organic fruit, veg and salad leaves and Andarl farm in Mayo provide free Range Pork and bacon. Free range eggs come from Woodville Farm and award winning local honey from Zoe Lally in Rathlee.

Pudding Row has received a slew of awards including Cafe of the Year in the Irish Restaurant Awards, Vogue Magazine Editor’s Choice, McKenna Guide’s Café of the Year and an appearance on the McKenna Guide’s Top 100 Restaurants every year since opening.

Their signature dish is a stunning pear and bacon sandwich on homemade white bread. Food writer John McKenna says “I’d walk all the way to Easkey for a slice of Dervla’s Victoria Sponge!” … and who are we to argue?

Watch out for the next video in the Sligo Food Trail Café Culture series.
