#DKRecommends: My Top 5 Dublin Coffee Spots
Industry & Co is a kind of hipster heaven for all things vintage, upcycled and interiors. I love it because they have an in-store café and deli and serve good coffee, which is a plus in my book. It's like olde worlde crafts and modern industrial interiors have clashed and collided there, so you find everything from traditional woven baskets to stainless steels, rough wood, and tarnished and worn fabrics.
41 Drury St, Dublin 2
Gaillot et Gray is a cool French bakery and pizzeria. You can have really lush, wood-fired pizza and homemade bread made on the premises. It's really laidback and set in minimalist surroundings. It's also BYOB so you can bring your own wine as well.
57 Clanbrassil Street, Dublin 8.
The Fumbally is like a hipster utopia, and I like going there, although I don't consider myself a hipster. They do great food, and If you're looking for a great backdrop on a rainy day for an 'outfit of the day' Instagram pic, The Fumbally is the place to go and be seen.
Fumbally Lane, Dublin 8.
Little Bird is a really cute café and yoga studio. I would like to say I go there for the yoga, but I don't. On a sunny day, I like to bask on their terrace and people watch, take in the sun, read a book or answer emails, with a really strong flat white in my hand and my dog Harry on my lap.
82 South Circular Road, Portobello
Bibi's Cafe is a cosy neighbourhood café situated on the corner of a pretty residential street in a charming area of the city. Not only is the coffee excellent but they make simple, home cooked, delicious food, with a strong emphasis on good quality, fresh ingredients. Wherever possible they source local, seasonal produce and using the best of local artisan producers and suppliers. They serve a menu of breakfast, lunch and brunch all week.
14b Emorville Avenue, Dublin 2
