Dublin has been having a serious coffee moment for the last while, with the World barista championships taking place here amongst other events. They tell me the water in Dublin is conducive to making really great coffee, and who am I to argue? In a town that has only recently been over-run by boutique coffee-houses, this is one of the best.

Just when we thought Portobello had absolutely everything the heart desires, along came G&G with their wood fired oven and Emmental cheese helping to make the best pizza in Dublin. They also bake fantastic sourdough bread and pastries in the morning. An instant success, get there early before they run out of pizza dough (or do as I do, ring in an order and nip round to collect)
