If you didn’t realise this already I have an obsession with COFFEE!! It is my help juice, my comforter and my energiser. So naturally I love to go out for coffee. It’s a cheap date, whether with friends, family or the boy. It creates a place to chat or gives you something warming if you like to go for a walk instead. It’s the perfect pick me up. Since moving to Dublin my love for coffee has only grown. So this are my top picks (and it was a hard one to narrow down!!)
Meet Me in the Morning
Just off Camden Road, this is the perfect gem. They have also recently opened up their take away section making it even easier to just pop in for a cuppa on the run. And it helps that their cups are super cute. The staff are also unbelievably friendly and helpful! Also, if you are peckish go for their doughnuts, or their seasonal brownie (I recently had the pumpkin brownie… for breakfast… it was incredible!)
A small cafe based just down the road from Trinity (though they have another four dotted around), it is the perfect place to grab a coffee for a walk around the collage, or a pick me up if you are a student there. Not just is it beautifully velvet, doing the Italians proud, they give you a small amaretti biscuits to go with it. Perfect piece of Italy in Dublin.
Clement and Pekoe
Their main cafe is based on South William Street, but they also have one within a small shop in Temple Bar, “&”. They use Climpson & Sons Coffee which is roasted in London, which is a fantastic roasters… and also nice to see something other than 3FE, not that I don’t love that roasters but good to mix it up! Their Mocha is a thing of beauty. You are presented with a mug of warm milk, with your espresso shot and a lollipop of the most amazing chocolate – mix and watch as it melts away to create the best Mocha in town!
Dollard and Co
The new kid on the block… well sort of, I think it’s been opened a few months now! Getting their coffee from TwoFifity Square Coffee, they make a brilliant Flat White. Plus they open at 8am so it’s great for that walk to work. They also sell their coffee which is great if you like to have a brew a home every now and again.
Which is your favourite coffee spot?
