Say Goodbye to the Frustrations of Eating Out!
It shouldn’t…no it doesn’t have to be like that!
On our recent trip down to Kerry we discovered the answer to all our problems. Yummy Café Market, right in the heart of Tralee town centre. Have they got it right or what?
Their café / restaurant is laid out specifically with parents in mind. Like many places in Ireland, Yummy Café Market have embraced providing nutritious food for even the fussiest kids, which is a fantastic really, but they’ve gone a few steps beyond.
They’ve created a purpose built play corner (with a gate) for toddlers to enjoy while their food is being cooked, and our little ones actually enjoyed this space. You can see the owners really thought about the needs of the kids, with its own play café space including kitchens, market shop and toys.
Emer Tobin - Manager from Yummy Café Market says:
“We have four young kids ourselves, so the first thought was the needs of families…many restaurants consider parent and kids needs as an afterthought.”
“Our menu reflects the needs of families, everything is freshly made to order. Our service is quick and friendly, and we try to anticipate the needs of our customers. Our chefs are brilliant at creating dishes that people seem to love….gourmet sandwiches, tasty salads, daily hot dishes, kids meals, vegetarian and Gluten free options”
Everyone’s welcome at Yummy
“People had the perception, that because we were focused on the needs of families, that the café was just for parents and kids. Quickly people began to realise that because kids were so happy to come to Yummy, they were more relaxed and content eating here. We all know happy kids are quieter kids, as a result we have a lot of customers coming here without kids”
Not only is Yummy a brilliant place for families to use, but they’ve created a very cool, contemporary vibe about the place. The use of reclaimed timber, funky lighting and the clever us of rustic materials, helps to generate a very welcoming atmosphere as soon as you walk in the door.
