Copper Kettle Café & Deli Reopens Under New Management

Copper Kettle Rathcoole

The Rathcoole Cafe reopened its doors to the public under new management on September 15th 2020, the week the Government announced a move to Level 3 Covid restrictions!!

New owners, award winning Chef Keith Kenny and business partner Brian O’Gorman might be mad, you’d say! But both knew exactly what they were getting into, and so, designed and restructured the building to allow for these eventualities. It currently has no indoor seating, with a quaint seating area in the rear garden, and a takeaway hatch to the front, for use in the event of complete closure to public traffic.

As proprietor of the award winning restaurant, “19 @ Lucan Golf Club”, Keith Kenny, is no stranger to the area.

The current pandemic influenced their decision to open as a takeaway service only. There is a generous space to the rear which they renovated to create a private garden picnic area which they call “The Secret Garden”. This hosts five individual gazebo coverings, allowing for safe social-distance dining.

The menu has something for everyone, with traditional breakfast offerings and some tasty signature dishes, including Burritos, Baked Wraps, BLT’s and The Copper Triple Club Sandwich.

Daily specials offer variety to tickle the taste buds.

On Sundays you can avail of the generous roast dinners of Turkey & Ham and Roast Beef, so you can give the cook the day off!

Variety is the spice of life, and with spice in mind, The Copper Kettle starts it themed nights this weekend with “Menu Mexicana”. The coming weekends will see Tapas, a Toy Show special, Asian Fusion and Italian. Advance booking for these takeaway menus will be necessary and food will be served between 5pm and 8pm Friday and Saturday evenings. Home catering is also a speciality, so keep it in mind for that special occasion when we can all socialise again!

You can even book your Christmas Turkey & Ham, to be collected on Christmas Eve, fully cooked and carved for you, and including delicious homemade gravy and stuffing. Enquire in shop for details.

Open from 9.30am Wednesday to Sunday, you can phone your order in to (01) 401 3267.
