Our reviews speak for themselves. Check out what some of our regular, happy customers have to say about our food.


“High quality ingredients and good cooking make for tasty eating at Mary-Kathryn Murphy's pristine deli and food shop. Especially notable for wholesome salads and tempting home baking, Mary-Kathryn's own good cooking also includes a range of freshly-prepared ready meals, and the food ranges stocked are carefully selected, including artisan brands like Janet's Country Fayre, Paddy's O'Granola and G's Gourmet Jams. The chocolate biscuit cake is a favourite and, like all simple foods, a great test of quality"

“I have used Mary-Kathryn’s Deli to cater for a few milestone occasions over the last while. I can’t recommend this thriving local business highly enough.

I specially love how the ingredients are locally sourced and I feel good supporting a brilliant local female entrepreneur.’’

“I love going to Mary Kathryns every week for a gorgeous coffee best coffee around in my opinion and the nicest. The salads and oven baked ham are just delicious. Beautiful wraps, sandwiches and paninis, soups are delicious. Quiche is so tasty. The chocolate biscuit cake is just amazing. I purchase the local honey there too which I find really good. I cook from scratch and therefore can be fussy when it comes to food so when I go to Mary Kathryn’s for food it’s great to know the food is homemade and always tastes to the highest standards. I look forward to a weekly treat to Mary Kathryn’s. All the staff are very friendly and Johnny is always so chatty and welcoming. I could not recommend it enough! 5 stars from me and my family. Our favourite coffee shop.’’


“St Joseph's Academy use to reside beside this establishment, every day I would frequent myself to buying food, it was the first place I experimented on sandwich fillings instead of going the usual ham or cheese roll. My favourite was a Chicken and Pasta fillings on a un-toasted panini roll, so it was something extravagant but delicious. The cakes were made on premis and the brownies were just heaven, so if you’re a cake lover, that's the place to be.’’
