Cafe in Dublin with good coffee and nice Irish people
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 towards us, which tempts us to try the delicacies that are on offer here. At the tables, which are somewhat reminiscent of a bistro, women with filled shopping bags, families with children, groups of men, business people with their interlocutors and couples like us have settled down, and everyone takes time for a break away from the hustle and bustle the busy pedestrian zone in front of it prevails. From ours Hotels in Dublin it is just a few steps away.
Anyone who comes here is quickly tempted by the charm of this traditional café to spend more time than originally planned. Bewley's is not an establishment purely for the consumption of drinks and food. No, here you let your soul dangle, watch the people, take your time enjoying the coffee or tea and would rather order another cup than get up too early to leave the pleasant surroundings.
It's cozy in Bewley's Café
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 turned out to be a good opportunity for us to get to know the friendliness of the Irish better. As usual, we first set out to photograph the interesting corners of the cafe, to capture the windows, the people and the ambience. A guest who is sitting at one of the next tables is watching us with interest. We order our mocha and tea and try an almond croissant with strawberry jam, which - as usual - becomes one of our photo opportunities. And he hardly lets us out of sight. “What does he want?” I ask myself.
After a while he finally gets up, puts on his jacket and comes to our table. He gives us a friendly smile and says: “Welcome to Ireland. Where are you from? ”And this unexpected welcome turns into a lively conversation about his work as a scientist, trying to get the Irish and people in general to be more conscious about food. We exchange business cards and agree to stay in touch with each other.
How nice they are, the Irish
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.
