[Dublin] Foam, Strand Street

So a few weeks ago, I met up with my friend from uni, Caroline, who's now living in Dublin with her New Zealander chef boyfriend Adam and working as an assistant visual merchandiser in Urban Outfitters in Temple Bar. Caroline is super cool, and we both studied French, sharing the joys and woes that is language study in Glasgow. She took me to  the very cool and colourful cafĂ© and gallery, Foam, where the decor is a mashup of fashion and religious prints and lights are everything. I spotted some of my favourite photographers, David La Chappelle and Jean Paul Goude in the ladies'. They even still had a hella kitsch Christmas tree to cheer things up, if a little out of season, it totally added to the mad lampshades and antique furniture vibe. We had some yummy marscapone strawberry cheesecake and I tried out the coconut and orange tea, a total must-try on the extensive tea list. It's tucked away on the north side of the Liffey; strangely in Dublin, the river makes a big divide in the city, with some people opting for one or the other, rarely both. Previously we had met up on Grafton Street's Bewley's emporium, a decent but certainly more mainstream joint; this was a total find and definitely one to return to.

With inneresting reading material to boot, this would be an escape even solo
