The Runnerbean Cafe
In the unlikely setting of the excellent, eclectic Stakelums hardware store in Thurles lies a hidden gem.
The emphasis that owner Louise O’Connell has placed on the cafe is fresh, fresh and fresh. Everything from an Irish cheese board to match the best to homemade pate. If you just drop in for coffee or tea, there’s a delight of sweet dishes to share or, if like me, keep it all to yourself.
Stakelums is a shop of the highest quality in its genre and as such is a destination store. I can’t wait to try their mince pie meringue which sounds too good to be true. Lots of other Christmas treats in this little gem to take the weight off your feet as you shop for Christmas.
