Culture Bite: Press Café at The National Print Museum

Posted 4 months ago in Arts & Culture Features, Food & Drink Features


Drop in for a wander around the inky joys and historic printing presses to be found at the National Print Museum in Beggar’s Bush, then make your way through the archway and treat yourself to a tasty homemade breakfast, lunch, or afternoon treat at Press Café.

The cafe’s extensive breakfast selection includes ‘Eggs Your Way’ and the ‘Press Signature’ featuring Toasted Soda Farls with Crushed Avocado and Chorizo topped with two poached eggs, with the option to substitute chorizo for smoked salmon, according to your preference.

Coffee comes courtesy of Dublin artisan roasters, Cloud Picker, while delicious lunchtime offerings include a wide and varied selection of homemade soups and sambos, including Cajun Chicken Wraps, Corned Beef sandwiches, and Slow Cooked Lamb, with tzatziki, tomato, caramelised red onion, black olive tapenade and baby leaves served on soft middle eastern flat bread.

Weekend visitors can also enjoy the added bonus of a delicious rustic brunch menu, with choices including Toasted Coconut or Banana Bread, Huevos Rancheros Salad, and Vegan Sweetcorn Fritter.

This month also sees the museum host a tour of the fascinating exhibition, ‘Miniature Masterpieces – 100 Years of Irish Stamps’, in the company of Stephen Ferguson, curator and company archivist at An Post. The event takes place at 2pm on Saturday March 23rd. Tickets cost €6 per person (€5 concession).
