After using the Happy Pear cookbook and watching youtube videos I was so excited to go to their restaurant and it didn't disappoint. The restaurant has a great atmosphere with great decor and things to look at. The food was super tasty and nutritious too.
Only a short train ride from Dublin I definitely recommend going and you can go for a walk on the beach too! :)

Pros: LUSH food, Great atmosphere/decor, Beautiful location

Delicious vegan food in a casual dining atmosphere. Try the taster boar, the vegan burger and the elderflower prosecco! Everything is great. Fantastic service. Overall such a great experience.

Pros: fresh, flavorful, great atmosphere

Nice organic place

The Happy Pear is an organic food market and coffee/lunch place in Greystones (County Wicklow), 30 km from Dublin. It also serves dinner on Thursday, Friday and Saturday night. It's nice but very packed. I initially went there for breakfast but arrived for lunchtime and had lunch instead. There were a couple of vegan options (humus, soup and various salads). Unfortunately it was really busy and noisy during lunch time. We couldn't enjoy our meal properly because of the noise in the room upstairs and because of people queuing for an eating/sitting spot. This isn't a critic of course, because if it is busy, there must be a good reason for it and besides, there's still the take-away option I would definitely encourage.

I adore the happy pear! It's cool, laid back and the food is top notch! Large portions, reasonably proved and healthy. Have been for lunch many times, they do a range of hot dishes, salads and soups. All vegetarian, many vegan friendly. I have tried their a la carte weekend menu once and loved the Japanese bowl and vegan bannoffee pie. Nice to walk from bray to grey stones on the cliff and treat yourself after to some awesome food! The cook book is great too!

Pros: great food , really nice location , reasonable prices/large portions
Cons: I can't live in the cafe!

Simply awesome every time

Since both its food and the people working there are simply great, it is rather difficult to say what I like the most about the happy joint. Since it caters for everyone, vegans will find plenty of options. It serves two different soups and hot dishes that change on a daily basis; there's also a salad bar and wholesome treats to choose from. Btw, if you'll have space left for dessert, try the oat cookies or the fig rolls. Yum!

Pros: Lovely food, Wonderful staff, Fair prices

I've been a fan got many years and I've yet to meet someone who didn't enjoy it. Food is fresh, tasty, reasonably priced and visually appealing. The staff are friendly and make sure to say hello to the twins (owners Steve & Dave) as they are sure to brighten your day. Well worth making the trip to Greystones just to experience the Happy Pear.

Pros: You'll have found a true gem, Fresh fruit & veg shop in same bld'g, Sit outside on a sunny day
Cons: Not open after 6, Only self serve available , Decor has definite character, but not luxury

I travel to Na Clocha Liatha (Greystones) quite a bit and so have been to this place a few times. However, my rating would not be as high as others, probably because I find that there is very little originality in their recipes. It the usually the typical boring pasta dishes that I can make up myself at home. When I eat out, I want something that is original and not typical. However, the prices seem fair.

Pros: Fair price, Nice staff, Nice area
Cons: No originality

Delectable Day Trip from Dublin

5
Posted on 06 / 12 / 2010

For a terrific day or half-day trip take the DART train from Dublin to the town of Bray (a 40-minute trip south of the city). Get out and head toward the water; look for signs for the "Cliff Walk." Despite the name, this is not a harrowing walk but a beautiful, seaside walk that passes sheep in pastures, wild flowers and stone walls. This 7km walk brings you to the town of Greystones. (Takes around two hours at a moderate pace. There are some uphill patches but it's not a strenuous walk.) In Greystones, find your way to the center of town. (Green signs for the DART station will lead you there; so will foot and car traffic patterns.) Along the main street you'll find Happy Pear, a cheerful, yummy vegetarian restaurant. (One half of the building is an organic market with beautiful produce and a small selection of packaged goods.) The restaurant offers two soups (today it was Carrot, Lentil and Apricot and Tomato with Roasted Vegetables), two hot main dishes (moussaka and Thai curry over quinoa today) and a salad bar with eight or so offerings. There are also delicious looking desserts from carrot cake and banana bread to brownies, muffins and spelt flour/seed cookies. There are tables out front on the sidewalk and upstairs in a sunny dining room. This is the type of place that makes you happy to feel alive. After a leisurely meal you can stroll through the town, visit the beach and then take the train from Greystones back to Dublin. A delightful way to spend several hours (especially when it's sunny!).

Pros: beautiful seaside setting, nice range of options, produce market attached to restaurant

Happy Pear on the main street of Greystones is well worth hopping on a train from Dublin and visiting. It's a nice trip out there: a grand airy spot, but the best thing is the bites in Happy Pear. The food is lovely, healthy and delicious! It's counter service you choose a hot dish and two salads for example (this costs a reasonable €9.50). The salads are top notch real tasty and nutritious. I went for the lasagna as my hot option and wasn't disappointed there either! Theres a good easy going atmosphere and the staff there are very friendly and helpful (Also seems to be a wifi zone: free internet if you've got a laptop). The prices are very reasonable and overall I'd say take a trip out to Greystones especially for Happy Pear! Do it!

Pros: Tasty, delicious, Healthy, nutritious, reasonably priced!
