Cupán Caife offers a taste of Ireland, with classic recipes infused with modern touches.

Cupán Caife, meaning "cup of coffee" in Irish, brings a touch of the Emerald Isle to The Rocks. Established in 2021 by Niamh Mc Aree and Gary McPeake, this charming cafe nestled within Frank Mac's on George Street offers a haven for those seeking a taste of Irish tradition with a modern twist.

Fueled by a shared love for Irish baked goods, Niamh and Gary have created a menu that celebrates the flavors of Ireland. Whether you're stopping by for a hearty breakfast or a delicious lunch, Cupán Caife provides a warm and inviting atmosphere where you can savor authentic Irish fare alongside modern culinary delights.
