Clement and Pekoe has long been one of my favourite cafes in Dublin city centre as the teas are just incredible, they have the widest selection of beautiful loose leaf teas that you can imagine. I go there frequently enough to stock up on bags of organic sencha tea but I don’t really stop in and sit down often enough.
The actual space in Clement and Pekoe is stunning though, it’s really light and airy and it goes all the way out the back. You’ll see lots of people tapping away on their laptops while enjoying a tea or coffee. They play really cool music and you’ll feel like you’re a million miles away. They have the most amazing selection of cakes too which I usually try and avoid but this morning I decided to try some out, in the name of research of course.
Most of Clement and Pekoe’s cakes are gluten free but they also have a selection of Paleo cakes. To be honest I don’t know a huge amount about Paleo food other than it’s unprocessed, natural and generally really good for you. I wasn’t sure how that would translate into cakes (usually all the bad stuff make it so good!) but I decided to try them out as it seems more and more people in Dublin are trying out Paleo diets, and they still deserve to be able to eat tasty cake!
