Vice coffee describes its vibe as “brews, bants, and beats”—“bants” being an abbreviation for “banter”, an all-encompassing term for good craic and conversation. Using a mix of domestic and international roasters, the menu has all the usual suspects (capps, flat whites, Americanos), alongside espresso-tasting flights, espresso-infused cocktails, and award-winning Irish coffee (they add a little orange blossom to the cream). All of this liquid versatility is accompanied by the seemingly humble toastie—Irish slang for what Americans call a grilled cheese. Except, these, like the coffee, are no ordinary toasties—try the banana-Nutella-and-mascarpone version, a sort of souped-up tiramisu for the sweet-toothed.
