Bread 41

This place is definitely worth a visit! You’ll find all kinds of fancy pastries and freshly baked breads. Fresh from their own bakery next door. So don’t miss the high-quality pastries such as croissants, pain au chocolat and bread rolls! The sight of these delicacies alone will make your mouth water.

Brother Hubbard

Brother Hubbard is a café and restaurant can be found several times in Dublin city centre. They have delicious and healthy breakfast options as well as lunch specials.


This café very near to Griffith College offers numerous and unique breakfast options such as pancakes, granola bowls, sandwiches and fancy pastries. Good coffee is of course also available. And it’s a perfect place for a Sunday brunch! But it’s important to book in advance, because Alma is the favourite of many.

Voici Crêperie & Wine Bar

This crêperie has a wide range of delicious sweet and savoury crêpes. There is also a great selection of wines from all over the world. Why not round off the evening with a crêpe and a glass of wine!

The Lovely Food Company Dumcondra

It’s a cute little café with a very good Irish breakfast. However, it is located just outside Dublin in the north. The bus journey from Griffith College takes around 40 minutes.

Keoghs Café

A café in Dame Street (Dublin City) that offers fabulous and numerous scones. There is also a wonderful “Full Irish Breakfast” (also available in a vegetarian version). However, you should expect a long queue as it is a notorious breakfast place.

Clement & Pekoe

If you are looking for a place to study that is not on campus, this café in town is a good choice. With its long and wide tables, it creates a productive atmosphere. However, it can get very busy at peak times – so a wait is not out of the question.

Press Café

wonderful café for breakfast! This coffee shop is tucked away in an inner courtyard just outside the city centre. Try the waffles with bananas and syrup here. And after your brekkie or brunch, you can visit the National Press Museum right next door.

The Fumbally

The Fumbally is not just a café, but also a mini organic market. As a café, it offers exclusive organic breakfast, brunch and lunch. It is located in Portobello, so just down the road from college. The prices are higher than standard.

Brindle Coffee & Wine 📍Brindle, Lennox St. Stumbled upon this cute neighbourhood spot the other day – ended up just grabbing coffee & a pastry but will defo be coming back for some of their wine & grub! #dublincoffee #dublincafe #dublinfoodie #dublinfood #irishfoodie #irishfood #irishtiktok #irelandtiktok #dublintiktok #irishfyp #irelandfyp #dublinfyp #dublinfoodguide #irishfoodblog #irishfoodblogger ♬ Can I Call You Rose? – Thee Sacred Souls

The cute little café in Portobello also offers exceptional coffee. You can enjoy your coffee in the warm and cosy seating area at the back. Wine, pastries and handicrafts made by locals are also sold here.

Noshington Cafe

Anyone studying at Griffith College should know the lovely Noshington café. Here you’ll find lots of pastries, cakes, wraps and sandwiches at a fair price. So if you need a change from Starbucks in the university cafeteria, you should check out Noshington. So take a look since it is only a stone’s throw away.

Little Bird, Coffee & Yoga

Just 5 minutes from college, an authentic café awaits you! Here you can get good coffee and scones, but also proper meals for those who are really hungry. Particular attention is paid to the healthy aspect.

The Old Bakery Store

If you fancy some freshly baked bread, you can find it at the Old Bakery Store in Harold’s Cross. They also serve coffee and sweets to take away.

Coffee shop chain Caffè Nero has numerous locations in Dublin. My favourite places are on Dawson Street and at Grand Canal Dock.

Mind the Step

A really authentic café in the city centre (near O’Connell Street) with quality coffee! Perfect for a relaxing time with a good read. But don’t be surprised if you hear loud music in between, as a dance studio is connected to the café.
