Hamper & Gift Shop

From Tuesday, December 1st, our café space upstairs at Spencer St will operate as a Hamper & Gift shop for the period leading up to Christmas and just after.

In place of the café, we’ve been working on temporarily filling the space with lots of lovely Irish gifts and ready-to-go hampers.  This has allowed us to keep the majority of our team on board in working towards this new and exciting shop space. As well as our hampers, we have lots of fantastic gifts from local and Irish producer including Tinnock Candles from Tipperary, Killahora Orchards, Beleaf Wood design, Clean Slate and more.

As well as a Gift Shop, we’ll be primarily using the space for our ‘Click & Collect’ ( Please visit us at to order a hamper which can be prepaid for collection upstairs on Spencer St.

Pre-ordered food ( for Christmas can also be picked up from upstairs on the busier days of December 23rd and 24th.

Check out for more details.

We hope to re-open Spencer St. café after Christmas. Café Rua on New Antrim St. will be reopening as a sit-in café on Friday, December 4th at 9am ..

Thanks to everyone for your continued support.
We look forward to welcoming you!
