Restaurant: Beanhive, Dublin

IT’S JAMES’ BIRTHDAY! Although the weather this morning wasn’t on our side with the constant drizzle and wind, but breakfast wise, what better way to start the day with personalised coffee art at the number one rated coffee shop in Dublin, according to TripAdvisor.

Due to last nights circumstances, we thought we’d opt out of the Full English breakfast as I originally planned for him and he ended up with a plain croissant but the coffee most definitely made it worth the trip and since being in Dublin, I thought I’d go go for the Irish Classic wrap.

We managed to catch ourselves a table in the corner, where clearly the barista had a full view to be able to create this masterpiece of James and so fitting to make James’ birthday off to a great start.

Jessica – Irish Classic Wrap – Ham, Grated Cheese, Tomato, Onion with homemade Mayonnaise – 6.95

The place itself was small, with only 4 tables seating area, but you can tell it’s mostly known for it’s coffee and friendly vibes, that most would come for a take away or a quick chit chat.

Upon arrival, the first thing I noticed, was the note on the door, that there was some pre-paid coffees from customers for people who need it most. This was something I had read over Facebook, somewhere in America but I had never came across one in real life and it was seriously touching touching that of course we wanted to take part in and purchased an extra coffee for those who needed it. And, if that wasn’t enough, there was also a sign saying they give free bread crusts, with a picture of a girl feeding the ducks and as this is located right by a park, it just seemed so perfect. Not that I need to big them up even more, but they don’t charge extra to sit in and they also offer free toast if you ask for it.

This cafe is simply everything I love and stand for, it had honestly touched my heart and it was just the cherry on top to end our Dublin trip and to top off the honest Irish hospitality we’d had over the past 24 hours.

If you ever stop by Dublin, this is the best place to go for a coffee or even to simply support the cause they hold up.
