Everyone enjoys a good cup of coffee but a truly enjoyable coffee experience in a big city is about a lot more than just finding a great tasting cup of joe, it’s about the coffee shop ambience and experience as a whole. A popular coffee shop is one that provides a relaxing atmosphere, excellent customer service and a vast selection of food and drink. Some even go as far as putting a lot of time, thought and money into the layout and interior design, including ensuring customers have easy access to power outlets in case they are wanting to work and comfortable seating to encourage them to make their stay a long one.
What makes a coffee shop your favourite will depend hugely on why you are going there. For example, if you want a quiet place to concentrate and work you’ll be looking for something very different to someone else who wants a lively place to meet up with a group of friends. Dublin city is home to some of Ireland’s best coffee shops and there’s something for everyone; it won’t be long until you’ve got a favourite of your own. Here are some of the very best coffee houses the city currently has to offer. Which one will you make your ‘local’ while in town?
