Queen of Tarts

With two locations, one on Dame Street and the other just around the corner on Cow’s Lane, Queen of Tarts has been a Dublin staple for more than a decade. While their Lavazza espresso and tea is undoubtedly good, the real draw is their mouth-watering, freshly baked pastries and cakes. Best For: Breakfast.

 

KC Peaches 

Although each of KC Peaches’ four locations have slightly different menus, they can all be counted on for enjoyable food for any diet. Create your own salads and sandwiches, select from the kitchen menu, pick and choose from a la carte items at a hot bar or get a pastry and a coffee to go. Best For: Lunch or Dinner.

 

Bewley’s Grafton Street Café

This iconic café has two levels of seating in beautiful, classically decorated rooms, making just sitting in Bewley’s an experience. With 28 desserts to choose from, including Bewley’s signature sticky toffee pudding, pair your sweets with one of their 100 percent Arabica coffees and have the best after-dinner experience of your life. Best For: Dessert.

 

The Bald Barista

Buzz Fendall a.k.a. The Bald Barista has two cafés, one on Aungier Street and one on St. Stephen’s Green, and he takes his coffee seriously. His signature FIXX blend, which was developed with Café de Cuba, has been lauded by many as the best espresso in Dublin. Plus, who doesn’t love great latte art? Best For: Gourmet Espresso.

 

3FE

Located in Dublin’s trendy Grand Canal Dock area, 3FE has been gaining attention lately for their signature blends. With rotating options for espresso and filter coffees that change every week, and a staff including award-winning baristas, 3FE is worth travelling off the beaten path. Best For: Something Different.

San Juan Better Than Ever After Hurricane Maria

It’s been almost three years since Category 5 Hurricane Maria made landfall on Puerto Rico, wreaking havoc on the island and leaving most residents without electricity and clean water. Tourism, which accounts for 6.5 percent of Puerto Rico’s gross domestic product, took a beating, with hotels closed for year-long repairs, airlines cutting service and cruise lines shifting itineraries to other Caribbean destinations. Timing for the hurricane couldn’t have been worse, coming on the heels of the government’s announcement in May 2017 that it was unable to pay more than $70 billion in public debt and thus forced to file for bankruptcy. Large protests and a change of government would follow. Then, in January 2020, a 6.4-magnitude earthquake rocked the south side of the island, forcing San Juan restaurants to close while power was restored. And as we write this story, coronavirus runs rampant across the globe with severe economic implications for all destinations, including Puerto Rico.

Mix Work and Play in Bangkok

The 1985 song “One Night in Bangkok” mentions many of the overindulgences of this city. One of them is massage parlors. Today, however, a Thai massage is considered an activity that improves one’s physical and mental well-being. The city has shed its former reputation as a place of wild nightlife and decadence, over the past few decades emerging as a major center for international commerce, wellness initiatives and tourism.
