Bewley’s Grafton Street cafe is to reopen for coffee and baked goods by August 27th at the latest, with a wider offering to follow.
Employees were told on Thursday night that the famous Dublin cafe would start a phased reopening with coffee and bakery only on 27th August, or earlier if possible. A wider offering will follow.
The company said the new staff roster would be “filled by experienced hands from amongst the original team”.
The cafe’s 110 staff had been informed on July 1st that they were being made redundant, with the closure blamed on the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the economy, and the €1.5 million annual rental cost on the protected structure.
