Well done folks!
Now we dont need many excuses to indulge with our morning cup of coffee, but today is one of our favourites. We are all huge fans of pancakes with the simple lemon and sugar flavouring and we have already been indulging with our morning coffee.
There are so many wonderful receipes for pancakes so we had a search online to see what there is to offer in relation to coffee pancakes.
Here is what what we found.
We would love to hear from you if you have tried any of these or if you have any your own favourites that you would like to share.
Congratulations to Listons of Camden Street who are 10 years old this week!
If you haven’t already been to this store and sampled the delights from their deli, I can personally recommend you pay them a visit. Not only that, but you will be spoiled for choice in the grocery store which is crammed with a fantastic array of foods from both Irish and International lines.
To celebrate their birthday, they are offering 10% discounts on all wines this Friday and Saturday so its a great time to think about stocking up on a few special wines for Christmas.

We are absolutely delighted to be supporting “The Cappuccino Culture” this year as part of the Absolut Fringe 2010. Described by Alice Galea, as “Warm, foamy, bubbly, caffeinated, tasty, flavoured, exotic, inviting, convival, recreational…exhilerating” how could we resist partnering with The Cappuccino Culture!
This playful production is about Dublin city and how it both changes and is changed by the people who come to live here. The title is a reference to the change from “pub culture“ to “coffee culture” in the city. The show features 10 performers from Spain, France, Germany, Korea, Iran, Portugal, Sweden, Poland and Dublin. Now as residents of Ireland they give us there first hand account of their experience of life here.
What happens when you get Irish, Spanish, Chinese, Italian, German, Portuguese, Polish, Iraqi, and French people together? Do they talk about the weather? Play pub games? The Cappuccino Culture is a playful exploration of identity, language and the meaning of home, embedded in the multicultural landscape of contemporary Dublin. Using the experiences and languages of performers and audiences, this ever-changing game ensures the show is different every night – mixing tonnes of energy with some really good fun.
The show runs from 19th -25th September and takes place The Boys School @Smock Alley Theatre, Templebar at 8.45pm
We will be giving away a range of goodies so keep checking in to see what we have in store for you…

Fixx Coffee are delighted to be the preferred Coffee Supplier for “All this and a Hill of Beans” part of Absolut Fringe.
If you haven’t met the lovely Jenna yet I suggest you drop into The Bald Barista on Harcourt Street and meet the one and only herself. Jenna is a real character full of wit and charm and her show “All This and a Hill of Beans” is a monologue and improv about cafe work and how life has brought her to this point.
So what’s the show about?
How does a witty, loudmouth Yank with two degrees and an over-inflated ego end up slinging lattés on Harcourt Road? Through monologue, improv and the dark art of foam ornamentation, barista Jenna Logan lays bare the hidden side of café work, and in the process tries to reconcile the gap between where she thought she’d be and where she is. All This and A Hill of Beans is a show for anyone who suspects that their true potential may not yet be fully realized. Directed by filmmaker Conor Horgan, the show takes place in an actual coffee shop and coffees will be provided; decaf served with a side of mockery.
Here’s a video excerpt of Jenna in action..
The show runs from Sept 12-22 and takes place in The Bald Barista on Harcourt Street.
Absolut Fringe is a 16 days of music, theatre, dance, comedy in Dublin 11-26 September 2010.
Well done to the team in Arc Cafe Bar who have been receiving some excellent reviews on their coffees.
Liffey Champion, June
” Coffee is to die for, creating spider webs on coffee, best coffee around! Great value too.”
“ate there recently, work locally but had never visited, great food, welcoming atmosphere – well trained staff who were attentive – manager checked our table – funny and nice – the best part was the coffee – taken to another level – would be back – maybe for dinner next time”
If you havent already been to Arc Cafe Bar it is definitely worth a visit. It is located on the Fonthill Road at Liffey Valley and has 4 levels, floor to ceiling windows flooding the inside with natural light, ceilings made from cut glass and excellent food served on every level.
