In A Nutshell Deli
Supplying Wholesome Foods Since 1999
Flying The Flag For Local Irish Produce
Patsy and Philip Rogers have been in the food game for many years. Their ‘In a Nutshell’ shop and deli & Cafe Nutshell are well known in New Ross for supplying a great selection of wholesome foods since 1999. This lively hub of healthy and carefully sourced products and cooking ingredients attracts locals and tourists alike. The café area to the rear of the shop was born as an extension of that – a place to find the best in casual day time cooking which utilises much from local growers and suppliers.
The ethos here is and always has been; ‘it’s where we come from’, Patsy tells us. She is a self taught cook who knows how to rattle the pots and pans and work with seasonally available ingredients. This lady is proud to fly the flag for Irish produce – and more importantly – for local produce. A taste of the Wexford countryside she and Philip grew up in. ‘We try to source as much as we can from our local suppliers’, she says. ‘We believe in supporting them and in turn the people of New Ross support us.’
Situated to the front of this old building in New Ross town centre a well stocked deli and fresh juice bar grabs the visual attention straight off. Here is where you will pick up a snack from the home made treats on offer. Needless to say trade is very brisk as the homemade salads, bakes, quiches and ready made food to go disappear very quickly. ‘Pips’ fresh juice bar serves a selection of drinks and smoothies to order. Straight apple and orange juices are made to order too – fresh as they come.
The home baking stand is loaded with house soda breads, cakes, muffins and scones from the top class in house baker here. Beyond the deli, shop for whole foods and organic flours, organic oils, vinegars and sauces and Irish artisan jams, pickles and honeys. Find a selection of Irish farmhouse cheeses plus dry cure bacon and sausages from Pat O’Neill in Enniscorthy. Also a wide range of natural beauty products and essential oils. You can even buy vegetable based hair colours. No nasties for those delicate roots! Follow your shopping experience with some refreshments in Cafe Nutshell, situated toward the rear, where local produce makes up a menu of daily specials and all day snacks.
During the summer months (July-August) Café Nutshell is open Monday to Saturday 9.00am - 6.00pm so you have extra time to pop in for a coffee and a delicious sweet treat.
