Cafe Provence - fantastic little cafe in Malahide village

We love the village of Malahide: so clean, with a lot of bright coloured shops, and flower baskets everywhere.... and the castle! and the beach!!!

To me the village has an unbeatable location to attract visitors.

I've talked about Malahide in this blog before, in this post about the Castle and the new Avoca cafe that was opened there about a year ago. This time I want to recommend you another great place: Cafe Provence

Cafe Provence is located right in the centre of Malahide, on Church Road (see the map in their site) and it opens everyday. It's never empty: no matter how early we've arrived, the place has always welcomed us with a warm atmosphere and a fantastic breakfast smell - that undefined amazing smell that instantly makes everybody want to sit down and order every single item of the menu, together with a BIG cappuccino! (they should sell that smell in bottles - it's so good, isn't it?)

So what's in the menu? something for every taste: from the complete Irish breakfast, to the vegetarian version (also really tasty), the veggie breakfast (poached eggs on a gorgeous toasted brown bread  with melted cheese on top: my favourite!), french toasts, sandwiches (my youngest kid likes the toasted special sandwich, like the one in the picture), pastries, scones, porridge, breakfast bagel... I'm sure there is something you like - please take a look at the complete list here

The place is very traditional: light colours, paintings from local artists on the walls

and the huge Specials board which has taken pride of place in the cafe.

It's not very big, and the tables are quite close (maybe not your best option if you want to discuss a highly private/confidential issue with someone), but in my experience, they can always accommodate big groups. I would advise to reserve if you're planning to have a family gathering there (with cousins, uncles, aunts, grandpa, grannie...).

Sure that you know Cafe Provence if you live in that part of Dublin. Do you like it as much as my family does? I'd love to hear your experience!
