Hi happened to be in Dundalk today. Literally stumbled upon 23seats. When I asked the lovely staff ‘Do you cater for Gluten free’ the reply I got was ‘Whatever you want on the menu we will make it gluten free’. We was fairly hungry so ordered soup and sandwich. The flavours were amazing. The soup was full of flavour and I had a chicken tikka wrap (gf) of course which was soo tasty. My husband had a toasty and also full of flavour. I would highly recommend this cafe for gluten free food and I will definitely be back. Thanks for the lovely food, ambience and of course the very helpful staff for the best lunch out for a while.read more

Awesome place! Good coffee and good food that’s a one thing. But the mugs… First time I was there I got Motorhead, then Dead Kennedys. And I saw Iron Maiden somwhere on another tables. What’s next? You don’t see that in coffe shops very often. Kudos to the crew!read more

This place is absolutely terrible . Where do i start. Walked in and place had three people there . Tables was dirty and two staff there . Seriously takes two seconds to wipe a table down . Cutlery was dirty I think they still had last Sunday’s dinner engraved into forks . Served me a cup of coffee with more chips than rush hour at McDonald’s… And napkins looked like they was used before Overall absolutely disgusted with the overall experience definitely first and last visitread more

I was so impressed the minute I came in the door. Lovely warm atmosphere as well as warm and toastie inside, forgetting how cold it was outside. . The staff are so on the ball, quick, friendly and efficient. The meals are delicious I ate twice there, had a Wrap and a Bagel with a good friend of mine from Ireland.. Pity you dont have one in SOUTH AFRICA..I was there just over 2 weeks ago. And lets not forget the most creamiest hot chocolate by far. Thank you so much, xxread more

I like the social, conversational and artistic feel to this cafe. They play great music and are always positive with all the customers they encounter which is rare in Dundalk. My only gripe is that it’s a bit small and hard to get a seat in the place.

Trying to do our bit...

We know that Coffee is important…
So is doing our bit for the environment. We use plant-based, fully compostable cups & lids for our take-away coffees and teas – we also use recycled napkins & loo paper. We use every opportunity to lower the impact our business has on the environment.

Despite what you might think, takeaway cups are not recyclable in Ireland. This means that we dispose of over 22,000 takeaway cups each hour.

Our Food

A couple of years ago Alan switched to a plant-based diet, It was a combination of improving his health, helping the environment and of course his worries about the treatment of Animals that made him switch.

We understand that not everyone wants to eat this way so we try and keep a balance between Vegan, Veggie and more conventional food choices. 

Our daily specials are usually veggie and sometimes vegan. Every day there is a different special on.
Check out Curry Thursdays and Fajita Fridays.

Music

Music is as important as coffee! We love our tunes and play loads of different types Here is our fav playlist so you can get an idea of the kind of sounds that we play. We are also happy to play a request, if you have something that you want to hear – just let us know 

Order Here!
