Have enjoyed Breakfast and Coffee here a few times now and the service and the food has been really good each time. Good selection of breakfast items and good value too. The Kennedys brown bread is delicious too, its a must try

I have been here numerous times for breakfast and lunch and I'm never unsatisfied or disappointed. The food is fresh and delicious. The staff are nice and usually attentive. For bacon lovers I suggest the Hicks Ham at all times but especially at breakfast. I love rashers but it beats rashers every time! Much love xxx

A most enjoyable time was experienced last Saturday. We only wanted a snack and opted for toast and coffee / tea. The staff are very friendly and welcoming and would encourage a return visit. The service is speedy and is so refreshing to be served rather than queue up with a tray piled high and dangle at a cash register... More

We regularly go to Kennedys in Raheny for breakfast and have never tired of it. The minute you walk in you are greeted by friendly staff. It's always clean and comfortable and the service is second to none. There is something for every taste on the menu and what can we say about Niamh, the Manager........always in a good mood,...

I love this cafe near my family home. Every time I'm over from England - which isn't often enough - I stay at Croke Park hotel and walk down here for coffee and a bun or, sometimes, breakfast. The staff strike a fine balance in easy friendliness and a high level of professionalism. It feels unhurried but you're not kept... More

I live close to Kennedys and this is a favourite spot for breakfast. The service is always pretty good and the food is good quality and good value. There are always a couple of specials which makes the choice even better.

Stopped by after going to the gym today, was really just looking for coffee but got breakfast as well. Best decision so far this year. 2 fried eggs, bacon, sausage, mushroom, and kennedys brown bread. Perfectly done, I asked the waitress to tell whoever made it that it was the best breakfast I'd ever had, and it really was. Reasonable... More
