The Brunch Edit: Press Café

Tucked away at the back of what used to be the old Garrison Chapel of Beggars Bush Barracks, you will find the National Print Museum with a conservatory attached, housing the hidden gem, Press Café.

Arriving early Saturday morning, we were lucky to be one of the first people there and had our pick of tables. Of course, I rushed over to the cosy corner with the comfy sofa surrounded by an array of magazines and books, perfect for a lazy morning brunch.

The café has a lovely, bright and airy feel with natural light flooding in from all angles. The mismatched furniture adds quirky character, potted plants are dotted everywhere and I loved the up cycling of mustard and syrup tins for their sugar sachets.

The menu is small but every item sounds appealing and is very well priced. The bf went with the beautifully presented Press Breakfast (€10.50) and I went with the Press Signature (€10) of toasted soda farls with crushed avocado and chorizo topped with two poached eggs. Every was simply delicious and perfectly cooked and the portion of chorizo was very generous. The 'Smoothie of the Day' on this occasion was raspberry, banana, orange, mint and yoghurt and ideal alternative to their locally roasted Cloud Picker coffee.

If you have enough room, displayed on their counter are homemade treats impossible to resist (of course I couldn't).

It's nice to find a place in Dublin where the turnover on tables is not a priority. The atmosphere was very chilled and relaxed and we never felt rushed at all, taking time to read the magazines and books on offer. It made for such a pleasant brunch and I highly recommend this place if you want to sit back and watch the world go by.
