We are a speciality coffee shop offering a range of coffees changing every week as well as a simple but tasty fresh food offering!

What started as training room in a Third Floor apartment has become a Dublin City hub for passionate baristas to showcase the coffees that inspire them most. 

In December 2009, 3FE opened its doors in the tiny lobby of the Twisted Pepper and (as of August 2011) a shiny, new stand-alone cafe and training centre on Lower Grand Canal Street. As of this year (December 2013), we are now roasting for not only our own cafe but all of our wholesale cafes as well.  We have recently buddied up with fine establishments such as Fallon & Byrne, the Fumbally, Brother Hubbard, Hollands of Bray, and L. Mulliagan Grocer. 

3FE strives to uphold the simplicity, quality, and service upon which the original, tiny lobby shop was founded.

First went to 3fe when it was on Abbey Street, a long time ago. It is busy at lunch times so get here early, but the wait isn't usually too long, just take your number tag and listen out for the call. Great place for espresso of course. Lamb sandwiches are great with typical lunch prices for Dublin.

Greatest coffee in Dublin. Friendly staff, delicious food and drinks. Always a great place to get an espresso in the docklands

Probably the best coffee I've had in Dublin. Definitely try the tasting trio. The staff is SUPER great and friendly! They know their coffee.

Great brunch with huge portions. The coffee is excellent. Got the stink eye from the bus girl when we asked her to clear our table because she thought they were our dishes.

You don't need me to tell you that 3FE does incredible coffee. Other reviewers, here and around the web, will talk about the decor, the friendly and knowledgeable baristas, and the incredible coffee. Their brunch options vary from week to week, and they pair well with the incredible coffee. Their specialty is incredible coffee, and they do it well. That's not why I'm writing this review. 3FE's brownies are, bar none, the best in Dublin. I've tried the popular choices, I've experimented with all the bakeries and patisseries in the immediate area and farther into the city centre, and none of them compare to 3FE's brownies. I have no idea why or how a specialty coffee place managed to create and perfect the art of the brownie, but they have. If this is your kind of dessert, you owe it to yourself to try these ones. Also, they make a good cup of coffee. I prefer an Americano, but I'll get an aeropress if I'm going to sit for a while, or a Chemex if I'm there to chat with a friend.
