WHAT'S THE STORY?
Step back to the 1800’s, the vintage Singer machines and traditional shoe making materials in the window of our first busy little coffee shop would have been making shoes on the same spot. The sewing machines and wooden lasts in the window were donated by the nearby Tara Leather, the last of a row of cobblers that made up ‘Shoe Lane’, now known as Tara Street.
The vintage timber you can admire in both locations is over 150 years old, was salvaged from a nearby warehouse and used to handcraft the floorboards, seating and counter.
Instead of fashioning footwear, we are crafting speciality coffee for the fleet of commuters and caffeine lovers that flock here in search of a quality cup.
Smack bang in the middle of Dublin, you’ll find our Tara Street shop which opened in 2016, and a short coastal train-ride away is our second location in Dun Laoghaire, est. 2018.
Brewing methods currently include espresso, V60, cold brew & batch filter… a variety of iced drinks…
Matcha, chai, turmeric lattes… and a few more secret menu items…
Please follow our Instagram posts & stories to be in the know about upcoming Cuppings (Coffee Tastings) and events…
Open 7 days in both shops, we cater to (very) early birds midweek opening at 6:30am-6:30pm. Saturdays 8am-6pm & Sunday 10am-5pm.
Call in for a brew, a chat and a boogie!
