Guilt free Gourmet Cuisine


We’re a new café at the heart of Castleknock, in the Phoenix Park Racecourse. Local husband and wife owners Stephen and Jenny Connolly (both health conscious) had a dream to open a café producing food that tastes great but without the bad ingredients! As a design team in their company InArc Design, they designed a couple of restaurants and cafes and gained an interest & knowledge of how they work. Jenny then took her interests further and studied nutrition before developing the menu for The Lo-cal Kitchen. Together they hired a team to help develop their dream and here it is!
Our dishes are low in calories and filled with nutrients to help you to maintain a strong and fit body and mind. All our products are Irish and Organic where possible. Our menu is constantly evolving & changing so please bear with us! Please let us know what you think of the place, speak to our staff, they’re very friendly and all too willing to help wherever they can.
We want to hear the bad stuff as well as the good!
