Heading into town for a spot of shopping this weekend?
I can't start such days without a coffee on hand, the problem is once I hop off the Luas it's the first thing I look for and I try to visit small independents as much as possible. Stephen's Green is full of the big coffee chains as you can imagine but this week to my delight a brand new DOTEY spot has opened right across from the Luas stop.
These Hands Coffee is a slick millennial pink café where you'll definitely have to visit.
With simple and chic urban decor, you'll step into this coffee haven and first notice the eye-catching pink counter and hand-painted sign on the wall saying "These Hands Coffee".
These Hands Coffee specialises in quality coffee, locally sourced products and a welcoming atmosphere. They also aim to be a sustainably conscious coffee company. Supporting other local businesses in the area is also part of their ethos with fresh pastries from Krust on George's Street beautifully laid across the countertops to entice you as you wait for your flat white.
If you're a little more peckish than that this morning they also serve up toasty and tasty bowls of porridge in the mornings that are sure to warm those cheeks up after a dash through the crisp Autumn air during your commute.
This looks like such a stunning spot, I'll definitely be in for my morning coffee next time I'm in town!
