Weekend Adventures | Cupcakes & Scones In Bewley's


I've lived in Dublin my whole life and I must've walked up and down Grafton Street at least a few hundred times by now and yet one place I've never stepped foot in is Bewley's. But yesterday myself and my Mam ventured in together to have an afternoon treat.....

When I first walked in the lovely whiff of coffee and cakes was enough to make my mouth drool. Even though I hate coffee with a passion I actually love the smell of it, there's just something about the smell of it that makes my mouth water but the taste is a whole different story. Back to Bewley's and it was absolutely packed and buzzing and it had such a lovely atmosphere.
Everything on the menu sounded really nice so choosing what to have was such a difficult task. When I finally made a decision I went for their luxury hot chocolate and a lemon cupcake (what else? They're my fave! I even wrote a post about baking lemon cupcakes) while my Mam chose to have a scone and cappuccino. The hot chocolate was heavenly - so chocolatey but not too sweet - and the lemon cupcake was gorge - moist and zesty to perfection. Yum.

I'm so glad I finally went to Bewley's! It's now on my list of top 10 places to go and I'm on a bit of a cafe buzz now - I'd love to do a little tour of all the coffee shops in Dublin.That would be so much fun!

I hope you liked my little lifestyle post for a change ... I had so much fun writing it that I might do some more 'weekend adventures' posts in the future. What do you guys think? I really wanted to do an outfit post as well because I wore my new favourite top from Zara that I got for €7 (I didn't think I bought that much in the sales but in every blog post I seem to be talking about my bargain finds. The life of a shopaholic! Ha!) but the weather was horrible. Typical.

Have you been to Bewley's? What did you get up to on the weekend?

Love,
Cliona xx
