Mocha's Vintage Tea Room & Restaurant
Next time you are in Mocha Vintage Tea rooms, enjoying some tasty and astute cooking – maybe some Guinness beef stew, with superb meat from Grogan & Brown butchers – take a second or two to look carefully around you at the room and its furnishings, and note just what a precise, aesthetic eye Laura and Joseph have. Traditionally, the Irish tend to be indifferent at creating just the right feel in a room, achieved by putting the right object in the right place, so that everything feels just right. But Mocha manages that feat: it feels animated and busy and pretty, but above all it feels right. And Laura and Joseph drive home that aesthetic triumph with excellent savoury cooking and sweet baking, so that even if all you are doing is grabbing a quick cup of coffee, the room relaxes and calms and re-charges you. But to get the best from Mocha, don't rush it: take your time, enjoy delicious home-cooked food, and savour this special room.
