The Full Irish: Sarah Jessica Parker takes her kids for fry-up breakfast in Donegal
It’s not every day you see a Hollywood star chowing down on a greasy fry, but Sex and the City actress SJP couldn’t resist sampling traditional Irish fare at a cafe in the North of Ireland.
The 50-year-old star stopped into Doherty’s cafe in Bridgend with her husband Matthew Broderick and their three children before returning home to New York.
The family had spent the last few weeks at their cottage in Kilcar, Donegal.
Customers at the Donegal cafe were shocked when the high profile couple took their seats.
“I nearly choked on my sausage when I saw Sarah Jessica Parker walking across the car park,” one onlooker told the Belfast Telegraph.
“They came in, grabbed a table in the corner and ordered breakfast with the kids.
“We were all star-struck – but at the same time no-one wanted to bother them by asking for pictures. But some took a few sneaky snaps as they sat across the room.
“They chatted away to the staff who couldn’t believe they were serving up frys to two of the world’s biggest film stars.”
The customer added that everyone in the restaurant was too embarrassed to ask the well known actress to pose for a picture.
“They were very, very thankful to staff as they left, and they cleared their plates so they definitely enjoyed their breakfast.
“Hopefully it won’t be the last time we see them.”
The mum-of-three recently told the Irish Independent that she would love to move permanently to the Emerald Isle.
“We would be delighted to decamp to Ireland. Move the children, put them in school there, have tea every day, a proper fry.
“It’s just an exquisite, beautiful, relaxing, wonderful place for ourselves and for our children.”
“I like tea, wandering around, eating, being with our friends. We have friends there too that I’ve known since I was growing up.
“The kids seem to love it. They keep asking when can we go back.
“They can run around and don’t have to be watched so much.”
