        Exactly. And then we won’t hear any complaints about €3.50 for a lukewarm Americano, self-service and dirty loos. Bewleys is a treat. If you just want fuel, go to McDonalds.

      Depends on the sausage roll in fairness. There’s some fancy, and quite meaty variants going around. Pricey nevertheless but you can pick up a plate of tasty vegan food in Govinda’s for €6.50 if you want good value.

        Probus wines do an excellent artisan sausage roll for over 5€. The fact is, it may be silly money, but no one is forcing you to buy it. There is also no need to post it online then to seek compassion / make you feel like less of a chump!

    the shutters will come back down. i reckon they’ll get a good christmas out of it, they’ll start to run into trouble by next summer, there’ll be more “save bewleys” lark going on, then a softer christmas, then gone by march/april 2018.

    It will be a mecca for tourists. Dublin is one of the few euro cities were “locals” don’t seem to get the idea of a tourist pricing structure? Bewleys wasn’t rebooted with Anita in mind.

    Bewley’s looks great and all but as it looks the very same as before what did they spend €12 million and several years doing??

      Believe it or not, it’s keeping it looking the same that probably cost all the money. Its antique finishings and furnishings would need specialist craftsmen €€€€€. Lashing up timber frame and load of concrete panels just wouldn’t be the same ….

    Having glanced over both menus, Anita seems to have chosen the most overpriced item from either of them, which makes me wonder if this was done with the sole aim of being outraged online by the price
