April 2017, our breakfast experiences
When my fiancé suggested to visit the newly opened Green & Bean Cafe and Bar at Brown Thomas in Dublin, Ireland, being open to visit and enjoy new venues together I agreed.
We went on Saturday during the Easter weekend 2017.
It didn’t go off to a good start after our arrival at the new venue which is located on Floor 2 at Brown Thomas on Grafton Street in the heart of Dublin.
First the hostess advised us that breakfast service was nearly over even so we arrived an hour before the breakfast menu was not available any more and the menu changed to lunch. She apologized and let us chose our table, which was positive.
We liked the international, understated design and that the table was large enough to hold all items we ordered.
Then we found out that only two types and the regular size of Green Beard cold pressed juices were available and not as advertised on the menu five types and also the larger size glasses.
There was no chai latte either, despite it was on the menu.
When ordereing we decided to enjoy two Beets by Ray cold pressed juices (with carrots, beetroots, ginger, lemon, pineapple, orange and apple), two hot chocolates, one cappuccino, which tasted more like a cafe latte, and one green tea.
Our main course was the same – the Spanish Tortilla with grilled Iberico Chorizo and Piquillo Peppers.
He had the oatmeal porridge with tropical fruits and maple syrup, while I had the tropical fruit salad with cinnamon and cashew nut granola and Greek yogurt.
We shared a bakers basket, which was one of the best in terms of quality of the items/presentation we had so far in Dublin.
In fact all dishes were Instagram ready so to speak. Gorgeous to look at, gorgeous to be enjoyed.
The food was delicious and of good quality.
The bill was 67.10 Euro (ca. 71.30 USD).
At first Green & Bean was quiet, but soon it was very, very busy and there were queues. Service overall was pretty good and enjoyable.
We would return to Green & Bean, believing that the issues we encountered were teething problems as they had only opened a few days earlier before our recent/first visit took place.
We would recommend to come early for breakfast or later for lunch. Both menus offer delicious meals waiting to be enjoyed.
Would we recommend this new venue to a friend? YES!
Would we want to enjoy this venue again in our future incl. for breakfast/lunch/all-day dining? YES!
Thank you and safe travels.
