Sister Sadie, Dublin 8

Sister Sadie
46 Harrington Street, Dublin 8

Tucked away from the hullabaloo of Harcourt Street, Sister Sadie is a great spot to visit for lunch or brunch. As the sister café of Dublin 1’s Brother Hubbard – yet to be reviewed by Legless – it’s a popular joint, especially at the weekends.


What has it got?

Seating:  All of the tables have moveable chairs, although the chairs do not have arm rests.

Doors:  The front doors is wide enough for a wheelchair.

Ground: Wooden panels.

Stairs: Everything you need is on the ground level but there’s a few steep bumps at the outdoor seating area and in the front door.

Bathrooms: Their bathrooms are on the ground level, however, my wheelchair didn’t fit through the door. So, take it easy on the coffee here if you can’t hop in and out of your wheelchair.

Spaciousness: It is a bit tight in here and your wheelchair might scrape a bit of paint off a few corners but with a little bit of a push and shove, you’ll be able to get in and out.

Helpfulness of Staff: Oh my word, ridiculously helpful and cheery.

Parking: There is plenty of on street parking in and around Synge Street and there’s wheelchair parking on Lennox Street.
Rating: 7.5/10
Why did it lose points? It lost two and half points because they don’t have a wheelchair bathroom and their bathroom doors are very tricky to fit a chair through. Also, it is a bit of a tight squeeze on some corners. However, don’t let that stop you from visiting here. The food is very tasty and it’s quite the treat.
