Bewley's Oriental Cafe in central Dublin

Cafe in the center of Dublin with good coffee and nice Irishmen

Even from the outside, the facade of Bewley's Oriental Cafe in the center of Dublin inviting. It gets even better when we open the doors: immediately an appetizing coffee aroma flows to us, which entices us to taste the delicacies that are offered here. At the tables, which are reminiscent of a bistro, there are women with filled shopping bags, families with children, groups of men, business people with their interlocutors and couples like us, and everyone takes their time for a break away from the hustle and bustle the busy pedestrian precedes it. If you come here, you will soon be tempted by the charm of this traditional café to spend more time than originally planned. Bewley's is not an establishment dedicated to the consumption of drinks and food. No, here you can relax, watch the people, take their time enjoying the coffee or tea and order a cup rather than getting up too early to leave the pleasant surroundings.

Whether it's the beautiful glass windows, the varied art nouveau décor, the wonderful coffee flavors or simply the cozy atmosphere, everyone has to find out for themselves. However, hardly anyone can avoid the charm of this café. We spend at least a good hour in it and watch the people who lure this cafe. Among them are young people who obviously want to drive away the aftermath of last night's party with freshly brewed coffee. Next door, a group of young men are planning their day. And on the table, an elderly gentleman listens amusedly to the conversations of four young women who belong to his company.

At the same time, Bewley's Cafe is a good opportunity for us to get to know the friendliness of the Irish better. As usual, we start by photographing the interesting corners of the cafe, capturing the windows, the people and the ambience. We are interested in a guest sitting at one of the side tables. We order our mocha and tea and try an almond croissant with strawberry jam, which - as usual - becomes one of our photo motifs. And he hardly takes his eyes off us. "What does he want?" I ask myself. After a while he finally gets up, puts on his jacket and comes to our table. He smiles kindly at us and says: “Welcome to Ireland. Where are you from? ”And from this unexpected welcome, a lively conversation develops about his work as a scientist, in the course of which he tries to make the Irish and people in general more conscious of food. We exchange business cards and agree to keep in touch with each other.

And not only because of the delicious coffee

Just a few minutes later, a man with his little daughter came purposefully to our table. The little one, one and a half years old - as we are about to find out, is literally pulling her father in our direction, beaming at us from curious children's eyes and making her papa stop at us. "She is always looking for new friends," he explains to us with a laugh, while his daughter laughs at us with all my heart. “We are Dubliners, but we live in London. We are only here on the occasion of St. Patrick's Day, ”he tells us and finally lets his daughter move him to the next table.

    Yes, especially the delicious Mocha and the friendly Irish have made this cafe visit something very special - and of course the great Art Nouveau interior. The windows you see in your post about Bewley's (http://meerblog.de/bewleys-cafe-mit-tradition/) are already worth a visit.
