We’ve been thinking it over and have finally decided: the best part of the day is that very first sip of coffee upon waking. When it’s made right, of course. There’s nothing worse than coffee that’s too bitter, too weak or most importantly, too cold. With the exception of an iced coffee in the summertime, of course! Today, we’re playing tour guide, perusing you through our top 3 coffee spots in Dublin 8.

The Fumbally

Check It Out

Well-located on Merchant’s Quay, the Fumbally feels like home the second you step through the door. Dappled with vintage-esque decor and mismatched chairs, your eye is instantly drawn to industrial-style light fixtures and a quirky gallery wall to the back. The perfect place to have your morning brew, if you ask us. The Fumbally regularly support and purchase produce from local businesses and specialist coffee roasters, what’s not to like about that? They regularly switch out their roasts for variety, and even create their own vegan milk alternative: sunflower milk! Definitely one for our coffee bucket list, be sure to pop in first thing.
