56 Central does their best to bring real food to the table, always thinking local first and how we can use a local supplier where feasible and over the year have supported many local producer.

Most recently working with Martin who brings fresh scones and brown bread every morning at 7am on his custom made bicycle to the door followed by the French who deliver fresh brioche daily from Le Petit Delice.

Food is about a process that happens long before it reaches us

Sourcing and working with Ali from Alis fish market on Henry Street where Gill has worked with his daughter Nusian, who recently opened a restaurant called Hooked , in her business Strive For It means we have the best source of fish in town as Ali often comes in on a Sunday straight off some boat where he has gotten a haul - the man is dedicated!!

We work with local producers like Juicy Lucy who made freshly pressed juice, or happy go lucky Andy who makes unreal spelt cakes.

Our Hot chocolate is from Hazel Mountain a local chocolatier in the Burren who make their own chocolate bars and hot chocolate. We make a delicious dairy free chocolate shake using the cacao powder from these guys blended with ice, almond milk, a few dates and a banana - the Central Shake unreal goodness served in a funky jam jar!

Our coffee is supplied by Matt and George a 2nd generation business who's father set up coffee.ie and sees the boys carry on the tradition in new modern style - sourcing a fine bean for us The Bristot coffee is makes great blend.

We are pretty serious about TEA...

...be it Irish Barry's Tea or our great selection of herbal teas which we source locally from Solaris Teas, a locally run business set up by Joerg Muller where all teas are served in silk bags. We also have a funky variety from Tea Pigs.

The Kenny family of J&C Kenny Wines fill our Wine Vault for us every week. Working closely with the Kenny ladies, Gill has created a simple yet affordable wine list for the wine vault.

In summer of 2016 we joined forces with Fernando from Spain who flew over to give a one off wine tasting alongside local blogger Cathal ‘A Glass of Red Wine’. This was a very special event with some delicious Spanish tapas made by Chef Arentas.

We look for good food, look at combinations that will make a tasty and, at times, a healthy, filling dish to bring to the table at 56 Central- something that our customers recognise and want.

Of course, we recognise that our clients want some good home comforts so we have a super selection of burgers from Beef, Chicken or our Chickpea burger careful combined with fresh avocado and salsa served with sweet potato fries.

We like to be traditional too, remembering where we are and our history, so therefore we have a reinvented an excellent traditional Irish Bacon and Cabbage dish which is a huge hit with both young and old.

We have incorporated specialties from 37 West like the Super Food salad which is a hands down favourite with everyone, male or female! Of course we would be nothing without the Chicken Melt which is so famous and so sought after that we had to give it a proper title and we invented National Chicken Melt Day on the 18th of March the actual day that the melt was created in 2014 in 37 West. We gave away over 500 melts between the 2 places that day and gave away t shirts, pens and balloons to all the loyal fans who cued to get the free melt!

56 Central has 2 unique flat breads which are becoming as famous as the chicken melts and will no doubt need a day all to themselves very soon.


Breakfast in 56 Central is a simple blend of old meets new...

....offering a traditional full fry to a very Aussie style eggs with avocado and salsa to a breakfast which Gill found in NYC.
