Great coffee..Really unique clothing.
To serve good coffee only one thing matters. You actually have to want to serve it in the first place.It doesn't matter how good the beans are,or how expensive a coffee machine you have, if someone isn't checking and adjusting regularly then the coffee will be below par. Since Ireland has developed a coffee culture over the past number of years, we demand more from our coffee providers and poor coffee just doesn't cut the mustard anymore.
We pride ourselves on how well our coffee is prepared and received. We use only the most delightfully blended,low caffeine, medium roast blend of Arabica beans from the Italian master coffee roasters ILLY to prepare our drinks.From a simple espresso, to our creamy Viennese cappucino we take pains to ensure each cup is as good as it should be.Already described in one national newspaper as the best espresso in the country we try hard to keep our standards up..
We're not strictly a food business and we don't pretend to be.Sabine enjoys designing and making clothing and I enjoy teaching surfing and supplying the goods for having fun at the beach.We are pretty passionate about our coffee though and we do like our food, so we have a simple range of good food offerings in our coffee shop.
We make soup each morning throughout the summer and we serve this with savoury scones made locally by Ferndale, our favourite restaurant .We have some super chocolate goodies along with a range of cakes, biscuits and cookies.It's simple but it's enough to earn us a listing in this years Bridgestone guide, so drop in and enjoy our products.
Wifi and internet access in general has been a thorny issue as anyone who has talked to me on the subject will know.This year though, we've managed to install Wifi throughout the building and we are happy to be in the position to give all our customers 20 mins of free access with their purchases, so that e-mails can be checked and business carried on! Further access can be had for €2 euros per half hour, so if you have a laptop, pda, smart-phone or i-phone, you can use our high speed connection to browse the web.
And remember, no matter how bad things get, there's always cake.Or ice cream.Or both!
For those of you who like to shop somewhere different, somewhere with a different approach to the high street, you'll feel at home in our shop.Packed to the rafters with our own lovely clothing products that we make upstairs in the workshop, as well as a range of items that we find really work for us,we have surf wear, rain wear, shoes , sandals, wetsuits,beach toys, sunglasses-a cornucopia of products that are rarely found together.
So come along and have a tea or coffee or soup perhaps, and take a look at what we have to offer.We're sure you'll find it interesting and somewhere that you will want to recommend to your friends and family.
