About Us

We wanted a beautiful space with amazing food and exceptional coffee, so we created Urbanity. We transformed an empty concrete shell into a bright, airy and modern venue. Taking inspiration from Nordic cafés, our bespoke design is something unique in Dublin.

Located just off Dublin’s largest public square, Urbanity is a small-batch roaster, speciality café, and all-day dining venue. We opened our doors in February 2016 and together with our dedicated team we have built a loyal following.

Our focus is the use of great quality, locally sourced ingredients to create wholesome, interesting, and delicious dishes. Almost everything you see here is created in-house by our talented team of chefs and baristas. Our menus are always seasonal and our food is always fresh; specials change daily and there’s always something new to tempt you on the cake counter.

Our style is relaxed, open and friendly. Join us for a coffee and delicious breakfast in the morning, wholesome lunch in the afternoon or share some plates and wine after work.

About Our Coffee

We source, roast and brew the highest quality coffee available. Our green coffee beans are single origin and supplied by Nordic Approach in Oslo. The beans are direct trade, which means they are bought directly from the farmers who get a fair price for their beans and maintain high standards. Our roasting process allows for the full flavour of the bean to develop, demonstrating clarity and complexity in each cup. We believe that by taking control of the roasting process we can deliver a consistently excellent cup of coffee.

Like our coffee? You can purchase a bag of whole beans or we can grind to order to enjoy at home. Just ask at the counter for a recommendation.
