Avoca Café

City sister to the famous craftshop and café with its flagship store Avoca Kilmacanogue, County Wicklow (see entry), this large centrally located shop's Dublin restaurants a favourite daytime dining venue for discerning Dubliners.


The restaurant (which is up rather a lot of stairs, where queues of devotees wait patiently at lunchtime) has low-key style and an emphasis on creative, healthy cooking that is common to all the Avoca establishments.


Chic little menus speak volumes - together with careful cooking, meticulously sourced ingredients like Hederman mussels, Gubbeen bacon and Hicks sausages lift dishes such as smoked fish platter, organic bacon panini and bangers & mash out of the ordinary.


All this sits happily alongside the home baking for which they are famous - much of which can be bought downstairs in their extensive delicatessen.

Seats 100; opening hours: 10am-5.30pm Mon-Sat (hot food served until 4.30pm Mon-Fri), 11am-5pm Sun; abbreviations
