I enjoyed a flat white at Panem in Arnotts. Great location near the doors. Fresh interior and quiet place to sit away from the hustle and bustle. I can't wait to go back and try some of the sweet and savoury food another day!

I have passed Panem many times in recent years. I've looked in the window at the baked goods on offer, and thought: "I must eat here or buy something to take away!" Today I had my chance. I headed down river from the Four Courts...More
