If you've ever wandered around town on a Sunday morning in search of a welcoming place that serves brilliant coffee and artisan food then you should know that all you need to do is wander on a but further towards Grand Canal and visit one of the city's prettiest Scandinavian-style cafes.
Annie's, which you'll find just off Barrow St, was closed briefly for renovations and ohhh my, ever since its reopened a couple months it has become our dream place to go - like we would happily move in here to live our best lives in a split second.
The bright open space in this gorge neighbourhood cafe is inspired by minimalist Danish design, right down to their simplistic take-away coffee cups printed with an 'A'.
The food is divine too, thanks to a brand new head chef, Mark Underwood, formerly head chef at Green Bench Café.
Annie's has created delicious new menus for their reopening and serve brekkie, lunch, AND brunch.
And the dishes here are absolutely glorious. From healthy salads packed with superfoods and veg, heavenly creamy broccoli soup, freshly made sambos (if you want one of these for lunch be quick - they nearly always sell out), and of course brunch classics like avocado smash and runny poached eggs that will make you wish you had a live-in chef at home.
Oh, and even the plates are SO pretty. See...
Annie's is the ideal place to pop by after a walk around by Grand Canal or along the docklands, and there's even an outdoor seating area for days like today when the weather is fiiiiinally nice enough to have a caffeine hit in the fresh air.
This lovely place is open from 8am to 4pm Monday-Friday, and 11am to 4pm Sat and Sunday.
The best bit? You can even order your treats to go via Whatsapp by texting your order to 087-1004864. Yep, this place is ultra chill.
Could you please start opening for dinner Annie's? <3
