We stopped here on a whim one chilly day and we ordered a coffee and a sandwich. Both were excellent and the interior was super cute!

Heard their add on the radio a few times last week so decided to try them out. for lunch. Had the southern fried chicken burger and chips which was delish and very filling for lunch My friend wasn't hungry but made room for the banana split which looked great and she devoured.

The ratio was awful. The atmosphere was a nice... More

In 1835 Samuel Bewley and his son Charles imported tea from China for the first time to Ireland. Originally based in Sycamore Alley near the Olympia Theatre in Dublin, it then expanded into coffee importation, roasting and distribution. Today see's the operation of three Bewleys coffee shops, South Great Georges St, Arnott's on Abbey St and most notably the legendary Grafton Street Café, which was opened by Ernest Bewley in 1927 (currently undergoing a refurbishment)Bewleys Cafés and the team continue to maintain a high standard of tea/coffee service which is available to sit in or take away.
