cafeteria, cafe Dublin

For most Brazilians, a good cup of coffee is the ideal company in the morning, to wake up well, or in the afternoon, especially in a conversation between friends. So, when we are in another country, having a good coffee brings us that affective memory.

The relationship between Brazilians and coffee is so strong that many people who did not drink coffee in Brazil start drinking it when they are abroad, precisely because of this connection the country has with coffee.

That’s why we’ve separated five coffee shops in Dublin that you need to know. Some stand out for their variety of drinks, others for side dishes and still others for the atmosphere. So, whatever your preference, in Dublin you will find great options for that delicious coffee..


Third Floor Expresso, a chain of coffee shops known for 3ef, offers many drinks options, and has stores throughout Dublin and even in Belfast , in Northern Ireland. The Grand Canal Street Café is a cozy place that offers a rich menu with good options for coffee lovers. 

The full breakfast menu is available all day, so the place is popular for brunches, especially on weekends.

The place uses grain from Ireland itself to make its drinks, as well as imported grains, even for you to take home. So, if you want to discover different types of gourmet coffee, this is the ideal place.

Café Shoe Lane

If you like a rustic but well decorated place with a nice feminine touch then you can visit Cafe Shoe Lane. The establishment receives its name (Shoe, shoe in English) because, on site, there was a shoe store.

The decor includes some period objects, such as a sewing machine that was used to make shoes.

If you want a moment to rest, or in the company of a good friend, to have a coffee to relax, then this is a calmer and more inviting place for these moments.
