Café
Happy Out is adding another string to its bow and taking on the Dublin brunch scene. At the weekend there will be an adventurous brunch menu with a variety of coffees and brewing methods to explore. During the week, we will be giving the people what the want; coffee, toasties and a full breakfast menu.



There are seats in the middle around the open kitchen so you can enjoy the hustle and bustle of everything going on. Down the back there is a bright mezzanine area with a skylight and then we have some outdoor table in our lovely sun trap out the back.



This brick and mortar style cafe is the love child of one of the owners, Brian. Taking inspiration from his travels around the world and his family kitchen. The breakfast tacos from his trips around Central/South America, The Levain flatbread from his sourdough starter and soufflé pancakes from eating his way around Japan.

    Lovely spot in Donnybrook. They take table bookings which is great - esp at lunchtime! All day brunch available and gourmet toasties! Plenty choice and options that make me want to come back to try more . Had the avocado eggs with extra bacon and was full until evening! Delicious!!

    Great food, coffee and pastries! Probably the best croissant I’ve had outside of France. Would be a 5/5 rating except the service when sitting in (been 3 times now) is consistently below par. On ever occasion at least one persons order has been wrong or items missing from the order but still charged.

    Beautiful food with good menu (all day brunch/ gourmet toasties). Small cafe so great to have option to reserve tables. Service a little on the slow side but that's understandable given quality of food prepared fresh on-site. Would definitely recommend and will return.

    Lovely little café in the heart of Donnybrook village. The decor and the atmosphere are lovely. Staff was very friendly and I loved the open kitchen. Food was delicious. Prices were fair and we thought that the kids toastie could have been charged more given the size of it and how good it was! Only note for improvement is regarding the tacos: the filling tastes amazing but the taco itself is a little dry. Also, they have a high chair which is a bonus if you have young kids!
