The Riddler is now serving our coffee January 31 2017
When we were asked to supply hand roasted coffee to The Riddler we couldn't have been happier. The concept and the connection to the Irish heritage blew us away. It was something we could relate to as we are both about high quality Irish ingredients. So in light of their recent opening we are proud to introduce The Riddler to the Two Spots family, be sure to visit them for a nice cup of Johnny Forty Coats and some of the amazing food they have.
The concept was developed by Keith McDonnell and focuses on his love of Ireland. He wanted to be able to use the local resources to produce in season quality food that is inspired by dishes Irish parents would have served throughout the years.
The Riddler, located in the La Rochelle Building, High Street, Christchurch, Dublin 8 (right beside the Old Dublin City Wall), provides Bia Bhaile, their chefs pride themselves on producing innovative modern Irish dishes utilising fresh, locally-sourced, seasonal ingredients. The liquors are all distilled in Ireland and the coffee is supplied by yours truly.
The Riddler is not just about Irish food though, but about connecting or reconnecting with Irish roots.
There are numerous mentions and nods to Irish traditions, media, culture. Additionally Ireland's landscape gives them much inspiration which is reflected in all of their dishes and decor. The space that The Riddler is in was an abandoned furniture store, the space was overhauled with herringbone parquet flooring, a full kitchen and a wood riddle feature wall. It was created with the neighbourhood in mind and it is a place where people feel welcome, eat well and maybe solve a riddle or two.
The staff are super friendly to boot and all of us here at Two Spots Coffee had a blast getting to know them. Don't just take it from us though, pop in and experience it for yourself.
They are currently serving breakfast, brunch and lunch as well as delicious coffee. Their opening hours are:
Mon - Fri: 7.00am - 3.00pm
Sat-Sun : 10.00am - 3.00pm
They will be opening for dinner in the coming months as they develop a stunning dinner menu.
