Popular. Inside & Out!
 Did you know that Dublin has a dog cafe now? It’s called Pupp. It came to mind on a recent visit to Sage Café in Limerick city centre recently. It wasn't the warmest of days but there were a few hardy souls sitting outside under their green awning, a very popular spot in summertime, I’m told. I presume some were smokers but there were a pair of customers there with a well-behaved dog.

This café is a busy spot. We got in early for lunch, And just as well. It was soon full - it takes about forty inside - and there were quite a few people coming too to take away some of the delicious food, including fresh salads and in-house baked items. The very friendly staff were soon stretched.

 It pays to take a good look at the menu here as I almost missed my main course choice: Fish plate with steamed salmon and prawns. What salads would you like with that? I hesitated. Maybe something of each? Okay, I said. It was delicious, a great variety on my plate and kept me quiet for a while.

I had been looking at the Duck salad with orange, fennel, pickled carrots, and toasted sunflower seeds and that eventually was what CL got. Another plate packed with different colours, flavours and textures, really good.

They have a great choice of sandwiches and cold plates. Hot stuff too including the likes of Courgette and basil tagliatelle, smoked bacon lardons, and parmesan shavings; also a Braised Beef in red wine sauce with sauté mushrooms balsamic onions, smoked bacon lardons and creamed potatoes; or maybe you'd prefer a Spiced lamb burger in a brioche bun, fennel slaw and homemade chunky chips.

A wee bit of a delay then before we managed to get our dessert and our excellent coffees. Indeed, they have  a good range of tea and coffee and Fair Trade where possible. You may have breakfast and lunch here with mainly Irish produce. Jams, breads, cakes, scones, and desserts are made on the premises and are very popular of the busy take-out is anything to go by.

Overall, a lovely food destination in the heart of Limerick and Highly Recommended.
