Before opening, the owners of this hip cafe ran a falafel stall at festivals. After a world trip spent gathering ideas, they set up this trendy eatery on the fringe of the city centre.
A cafe with a conscience, the Fumbally prides itself on working closely with suppliers to ensure food ingredients are as ethical as possible. The menu changes daily, although a few dishes remain constantly; Scrambled Eggs with Gubeen Cheese, Garlic and Tomatoes is one of a few signatures.
Coffee is by 3FE, with guest roasters sometimes making an appearance. A double shot comes as standard and there’s the option of organic whole milk or house-made sunflower milk. The Fumbally is big on all things pickled and fermented – be sure to try one of their flavoured kombuchas.
Through mismatched antique furniture, affable staff, and soulful music Aisling Rogerson and Luca D’Alfonso have created a warm and welcoming cafe space from an unassuming Celtic Tiger era retail unit. Next door, The Fumbally Stables offers workshops, talks and events centred around food. The building was built circa 1750 and was used by nearby breweries and distilleries in the historic Blackpitts area.
