Dublin’s Best Coffee Shops

We all love our daily dose of Caffeine to kick start our day, or even evening depending on your dispostition. Here we list some of Dublin’s best Coffee fixes and cosy/unique places to enjoy a hot brew whilst in the City.

– Mind the Step Cafe – Strand St. Great – D1

Not only is this a fine coffee shop, but it is also home for some of Dublin’s Dance studios. In here you can find a friendly welcome from Sean and Marta, both of which make you feel right at home. The window seat is the best place to sit and watch the world go by. They have a nice selection of 3fe coffee and their minimalist approach makes it the ideal place to go and do some work or focus for a few hours. All the while enjoying the relaxed atmosphere and coffee. The most unique aspect about this coffee shop is that they are open late in the evening, so if you prefer to chat and socialise in a non-bar environment in Dublin, this is your go to place. Check out their offerings of Bespoke Dance /Yoga Classes on the wall . The City center location is also right beside the millenium walk, Jervis st. Luas and the Temple Bar area.

Following from that, they were determined to rid themselves of single-use plastic and go either recyclable, but preferably compostable. They also have a great online store for all your custom coffee & Tea Blended , Matche Latte needs. From filters, to aerators to speciality blends of Tea and coffee.
