Two companies in Drumcondra will treat your pet like a VIP guest.
The Lovely Food Company and Bread & Butter in Drumcondra have both declared themselves dog friendly.
They go above and beyond for their four-legged customers by having water bowls outside and even keeping treats behind the counter for your precious pooch.
Victoria, who is the manager of Bread & Butter, told Dublin Live: “We are definitely dog friendly, we have behind the counter dog treats. The regulars come with their dogs and they know they’ll have a blast when they’re here.
Andra, the manager of The Lovely Food Company, knows the usual dogs by name and added: “This is a dog friendly place, dog owners usually sit outside. We have treats for dogs, but most dogs prefer sausages and chicken on their owners’ plates.
Bread & Butter was one of the first cafes around Drumcondra. The company sells a variety of products including pastries, teas, pasta, wine and more. They also stock many Irish products.
“We sell a lot of bread that comes from our own kitchen. The pastries are all homemade, we have a gluten-free range and we also have a lot of vegan stuff, we sell a lot of that,” Victoria continued:
“We are selling more of our homemade pastries, mainly vegan pastries. Caramel squares and hazelnut squares are selling out every day, we have to bake them so much.
“We have a lot of Drumcondra regulars that we serve during the day. We serve loyal people every day, we know their orders and when we see them coming, we try to get their orders ready.
Andra pointed out that the café is always “busy, busy, busy”, especially when the brunch menu is available on weekends.
She said, “There are a lot of B&Bs around here, it makes such a difference in bringing tourists back. It’s another atmosphere, everything is back to normal now.
“We do vegetarian, gluten-free and vegan food. There are many choices. We have students here during the week with the college near us, we also have regulars from the offices around here.
