Foam Cafe – Mad tea party

Foam is quite possibly one of the most original cafés in Dublin. To say that the interior is eclectic would be a major understatement. In fact I think it would be fair to say nothing about this place could be considered understated. From the multicolored flamingos and cuckoo clocks adorning the walls to the religious paraphernalia and porcelain woodland creatures on the tables, Foam is akin to taking a trip down the rabbit hole. I’m sure if you look closely enough you might even spot a mad hatter among the decorations.

With an extensive lunch menu and a wide choice of delicious cakes baked on site Foam also stays open into the evening with occasional DJs and is fully licensed. They now also offer an alternative afternoon tea, perfect for that special occasion if your trip is a celebratory one. Only a few minutes walk from Dublin’s famous Ha’penny Bridge on the city’s north side it can still be a little tricky to find. But just keep your eyes out for its glittering facade and you will get there easily enough. And if you need any more info on our city while you’re there then just ask for the owner Tom and tell him that I sent you!
