Dublin's Little Gem - The Pepper Pot Café
Located on the first floor of the beautiful Powerscourt Townhouse Centre on South William Street, The Pepper Pot café is one of Dublin city centre’s best and busiest independent cafes. Quirky tablecloths, mismatched vintage crockery and adorable teapots make it a lovely spot for breakfast, brunch or lunch in Dublin.
At the weekend it gets quite busy and you might have to join the waiting list but fortunately the wait isn’t too long and always worth it!
On the menu, you’ll find savoury treats, homemade sweet baked goods, some take away products as well as hot and cold drinks. For breakfast, try some healthy fares like organic porridge served with different toppings or their scrumptious creamy scrambled eggs are available all day, but you can also indulge in some scones with jam and cream if you fancy.
For lunch, you can choose from a range of seasonal tarts or tasty salads that come with homemade brown soda bread.
What makes me always go back to the Pepper Pot café is definitely their amazing sandwiches that have to be some of Dublin’s best. The all time favourite is their gourmet bacon sandwich with a roast pear, bacon and Montgomery cheddar. The homemade bread is so light, soft and fluffy and the mayo and wholegrain mustard mix is a delight. The sausage sandwich with apple and tomato chutney is also an excellent choice at any time of the day. As well as sandwiches, the Pepper Pot café have homemade bagels with Burren smoke house salmon, lemon and chive cream cheese and a green salad or crispy bacon with chive cream cheese and chutney.
For cakes in Dublin city, the Pepper Pot is a safe bet. Most of their treats are displayed on the counter and perfect for afternoon tea. From scones to Victoria sponge, from flourless chocolate cake to an indulgent carrot cake, all those with a sweet tooth out there will find something to make them happy.
On Thursday and Friday nights from 6.30pm to 9pm, a supper menu is available with the same focus on seasonality and quality local produce, reservations are recommended though to avoid disappointment.
The Pepper Pot café is a charming little spot serving great homemade food, the service is quick and efficient and the sitting area on the mezzanine level is ideal for people watching.
