I’m sure everyone thinks all I do is eat all day….well I kind of do but we have such a great range of food establishments in Sligo I may as well. Knox has recently opened in O’Connell Street, Sligo. If you are wondering why it’s called Knox it’s because that was the original name for O’Connell Street.
Patrick Sweeney and David Dunne are the men behind the venture and they have a friendly team of staff. I was only going to pop in for coffee because it was early in the morning – but the cake was shouting at me so it was only polite to try it out. If it’s good enough for the Italians to have cake for breakfast it’s good enough for me.
Not only was I impressed with the cake and coffee I also love the decor and as I’m on the PR committee of Sligo Tidy Towns I was very impressed to find out that the tables were originally boards from scaffolding that was used by the workers at Penneys just across the road. The wood panelling is also recycled, it was originally a stage used by the Swell Summit in Strandhill. Clever idea and it really works.
So that was my visit to Knox. Lucy went for lunch there the other week and you can see what she thought here.
