About The Restaurant
Mike and Siobhan Hogan just got everything right when they opened their brilliant Sage Café on Catherine Street in Limerick In 2006. The décor is cool, the food is wholesome and delicious, and the beat is buzzy, and the appreciative diners have been flocking in ever since. They have a strict ethos and criteria when it comes to sourcing their produce and it shows. All of their viandes are Irish, born and reared; their eggs are free range; their breads, jams, chutneys, and desserts are homemade. Nothing sets me off better for the day than a really good breakfast. I am afraid I am not a black coffee and a ‘fag’ girl – I want my healthy oeuf in some way or other and also my yoghurt and a croissant. Oh dear, I am disclosing the secrets of the O’Sullivan food habits. At The Safe Café all my desires are met. They do a very reasonably priced traditional breakfast, but smartly served, with crispy bacon, Irish sausages, black and white pudding, grilled tomat and egg whichever way you want it. They also do poached egg, which I like, on toast with crispy bacon and grilled tomat, or fresh scrambled egg with Irish oak salmon and chive crème fraiche – another favourite. I usually start with their homemade granola with Greek yoghurt and honey, and yes I finish up with a hot buttery croissant with jam. They do lunch from 12 noon to 4 pm at very good prices. They always have a delicious soup which is coeliac friendly – very important. I love their Atlantic salmon, cod and leek, cakes which are substantial, fluffy and delicious. They serve them with saute baby spinach with mint, feta, and natural yoghurt dressing. Roasted herb chicken breast is husband, Brendan’s, favourtie. It is really yummy moist chicken breast served with Savoy cabbage, creamed potato, and wild oyster mushroom sauce. Roasted confit of duck leg gets an eclectic twist using Pancetta, colcannon cake and Hoi Sin sauce. They also have good veggie options – Cashel Blue cheese and asparagus tart being one and polenta and nut coated goat’s cheese with poached Star Anise, pear and rocket salad with cherry tomatoes, being another. They always have a terrific selection of homemade desserts and pastries on the Deli counter and they have very reasonably priced children’s options. Did someone say Mike Hogan was one of the Cranberries…..Oh Boy ..Rock On..Music and Great Grub…the staff of life.
