The refurbished RooftopCafe at M&S on Grafton Street offers respite from the hurly-burly of the streets below

THE M&S Rooftop Cafe opened this week at Marks & Spencer’s flagship store on Grafton Street.

The rooftop space has undergone a complete refurbishment, and boasts new decor, layout and menu.
A key feature is the installation of booth seating, and the 150-seat dining area offers al fresco dining, with a 30-seat roof-top terrace boasting views onto Grafton Street and across the Dublin skyline.
The cafe is a great post-shopping destination, offering a delicious new menu throughout the day.
For lunch and dinner, choices range from light bites, such as jacket potatoes and soup to main meals from the M&S Food Hall.
These include superfood Italian chicken with orzo pasta and kale and the taste spicy wok fried shaking beef.
Young diners are also well catered for at the cafe.
There is a new kids’ menu featuring toasties, hot meals and healthy snacks, including carrot and cucumber pots.
The cafe also offers customers a selection of hot and cold drinks, including Fairtrade tea and coffee, for that apres-shop pick-me-up.
Store manager Billy Reid said: “We are thrilled to be opening our new M&S Rooftop Cafe and look forward to welcoming shoppers and passersby to experience quality M&S food in a superb location.
“We are confident that the redesigned M&S Rooftop Cafe will make shopping trips even more enjoyable for our customers.”
