We love the classic mid-20th century glass facade of Emma’s, one of the prettiest shopfronts you will find anywhere in Ireland. It means that Emma’s fits stylishly and snugly into the town of Birr, for us one of the prettiest towns in the country. Anytime you are sitting yourself down at one of the counter seats in Emma’s is always a good time, the sweet aromas of home baking tempting the tastebuds, the rich roasted aroma of good coffee stirring your senses to life. And that’s just what Emma’s does: this honest, soulful cooking brings you to your senses, making you hungry for a good breakfast; hungry for a good lunch; hungry for something sustaining in the middle of the afternoon. And the team do all this with charm, wit and humour, meaning it’s an always-welcoming destination, and make sure to pay attention to the lovely local treats they stock on the shelves. Emma’s makes life better for everyone, bit by bit, bite by bite, day by day. A real Birr beauty.
