Off the Beaten Path; Worth the Walk

Posted on 08 / 21 / 2014

Bia Blasta was one of our top experiences eating in Ireland. The huge vegan breakfast included: beans, sauteed mushrooms, roasted half tomato, two vegan sausages, potato cake and toast. We also ordered the vegan French toast which was amazing and also a huge serving. We were able to see the owner prepare our meals in a tiny kitchen. The eclectic/homey decor just added to the delightful breakfast. Service by the owner was quick and friendly. Can't wait to return to Bia Blasta.

Pros: Great value, Excellent food, Homey/friendly vibe
Cons: Location

Lovely vegan breakfast in a cosy café

Posted on 07 / 21 / 2014

I went for breakfast here on a Monday morning at around 11am. The café is small, cosy and nearly full, clearly a popular local spot. There is a vegetarian breakfast menu written up on a blackboard, which I was able to get a vegan version of. I got toast with Pure vegan butter, baked beans, mushrooms, a potato waffle and two Linda McCartney sausages. It was as filling and delicious as it sounds! I also got an orange juice and it came to €7.50, very good value.

Pros: friendly staff, vegan options, good value, cosy atmosphere
Cons: a bit out of the way
