I had heard a lot about Brother Hubbard a café on Dublin’s Capel Street, all of it good, but I had not sampled even a cup of coffee there before this weekend

Dublin: Breakfast at The Fumbally
When I walked through the door of The Fumbally, for the first time, a few months ago, I knew that it was my sort of café. I loved the decor and was struck by the ambiance. I ordered and crossed my fingers and toes hoping that I would like the food as much as I liked the place. And I did. As it’s off my beaten track I don’t get back there often. Last Friday I left home without scarfing down breakfast so when I found myself a few kilometres away from The Fumbally I made a small detour to sample again The Fumbally’s ‘Eggs with Gubeen Cheese’.

Coffee in Dublin//Seven: Clement & Pekoe
When I am in town, I am constantly on the trail of the holy grail of caffeine – a decent cup of coffee. Town incidentally is Dublin, which is actually a city but for some reason native Dubliners, myself included, often use the noun town when talking about it – as in ‘going into town’, ‘working in town’, and ‘shopping in town’. Anyway that semantic digression aside the good news is that there is an excellent newish café/shop called Clement & Pekoe serving equally excellent coffee (and teas) at 50 William Street South in the centre of Dublin.
Coffee in Dublin//Six: Urbun
Urbun is a café in the heart of Cabinteely Village in South County Dublin. The name is a play on words; the owners Katie and Niamh choose it because their inaugural project together was making cakes to sell at a market stall and because when they opened the café they wanted to bring an urban vibe to suburban Cabinteely. Katie and Niamh both have food related backgrounds; in a previous life Katie was the food editor of Totally Dublin and Ballymaloe trained Niamh cut her foodie teeth working in the London café scene.
♥ Coffee in Dublin//Three: Bibi’s Cafe
The culinary deities have been kind to the denizens of Dublin 8, as there is a delightful café called Bibi’s in the neighbourhood, which serves breakfast and lunch on weekdays and brunch at the weekend.

♥ Coffee in Dublin//One: The Cake Cafe
The Cake Cafe, in the eco-friendly Daintree building, is slightly off the beaten track. First find the Daintree paper shop on Camden Street, walk through the shop and exit by the rear door into a bamboo fringed alleyway, when you emerge you will see The Cake Café.
