Cloud Picker and Bread 41: Are these Dublin’s best two cafes?
Tucked under a railway bridge and in an old cinema projector room, they’re making the city better from the inside out
Cloud Picker Café.
It’s a bit like the wild west on Dublin streets these days, the old Hollywood version where the facades wobbled as the stagecoach rushed by. We have redbrick facades steadied with steel girders and tonnes of concrete to stop them collapsing backwards into the void that used to be the rest of the building.
Refurbishing old stuff seems not to be where profit lies these days. Better to brace the facade, hollow out the insides and crane in a shiny new core.
