The Soul of Killiney

Our food and service play a massive part in the community of Killiney. We cater to a number of events and occassions.

Our Story

We are a small family run café in Killiney shopping centre and began our journey in May 2001. A café owned and run by husband-and-wife team Paul and Elaine Keogh. Paul is the chef who runs the kitchen while you can find Elaine front of house. Paul has been working as a chef in the catering industry for over 30 years.

In 2001 we decided to take the leap of faith and begin our own journey and so began Café Solo in may of that year. We pride ourselves on our home made cooking in bright friendly atmosphere and with wonderful professional service. We love being able to meet our customers needs whilst providing a wide variety of menu items to include breakfast, lunch, soups, scones, hot meals, salads, sandwiches, wraps, panini’s and lots of sweet treats.

We are currently open from Tuesday to Saturday from 8.30am to 5pm.

Freshly made food served daily. A full menu for the whole family to choose from.


"The staff are very friendly. Just the right amount of things on the menu to satisfy your hunger. Between baguettes to panini with many fillings to choose from, soup and breakfast served all day. A lot of tasty looking scones and cakes. I got the omelet and side of salad. Really satisfying."

"Great little bakery, coffee, pastry, and breakfast shop. I had eggs/toast/coffee, my son had porridge, my husband had Eggs Benedict. All were delicious. Also had a scone to go which was outstanding. Good quality food and friendly people!"

"I paid a long-overdue visit to my favourite local café recently. I had not realised just how much I missed my frequent visits until I again sampled the superb fare served by very pleasant and personable staff."

"Lots of places serve good coffee and nice cakes, the USP here is the service. Everyone is helpful, good-natured, considerate and genuinely conscientious about looking after the customers. It just seems to be in the DNA of this place. Thank you, we'll be back!"

"Good food, local, good quality, attentive service, good value, deservedly popular with locals. Good parking. Try coffee and pear n almond scones (have just fouled up my favourite morning bite!!!)"
