Jean, Elaine and I went to Perry Street Market Cafe recently to have a bite to eat. This little known gem is located about 2 minutes off Patrick St as you head towards the Opera House. To those GAA and sporting fans it is across the street from Larry Tompkins Bar. In a former life it was a furniture store and has got a new lease of life with a radical transformation. It is obvious that a lot of thought went into the redesign and someone who knew what they were doing designed the disabled toilet. It certainly showed me that old buildings can be made wheelchair friendly and accessible, including the toilet facilities.
The food we had was gorgeous and the service excellent. There is a fairly extensive selection available and Jean and I had spiced beef while Elaine had chicken. There is ample circulation space but like all places at peak times it might be a small bit tight. I have been told that even without the wheelchair, space is at a premium at lunchtime. There is a designated disabled parking space at the front door. The toilet is wheelchair accessible with plenty of room and the appropriate grab-rails. The cafe is well worth a visit and I will definitely be going back.
My Disabled Accessibility Rating is 5 Star
