What a happy shop Mary-Kathryn’s is. Blessed with a brilliant crew who follow their lead of their boss every step of the way, MKs has been one of the defining destinations in Kildare ever since they opened their doors.
“Fresh, wholesome food” is what the sign outside the shop promises, and fresh, wholesome food is what you get, every time. Underneath the handsome appearance of the foods, there is always a deep message, about food and health, and about food and well-being. Mary-Kathryn doesn’t shout about it, because the deliciousness of her foods means that the healthfulness is not overt. But when you look closely at their focus on sourcing locally, on buying in season, on creating varied and colourful and fresh dishes, then whether you are buying your dinner to take away for the evening, or just grabbing a sandwich for lunch to take back to the office, you are in fact buying health, as well as something super tasty.
Mary-Kathryn’s is a template of how good health and good food belong together, and how the enjoyment of both is key to living well. Add in that excellent crew who are always going to put a smile on your face, and you have a star for County Kildare.
