Our Mission

Honey Truffle creates vibrant food using the very best ingredients, with a focus on Irish produce, suppliers and seasonal offerings.

Honey Truffle is a small independent Irish business, with a foundation of integrity. We encourage creativity, a good working atmosphere and a commitment to the environment and community in which we live, for the benefit of all.

In our first year of trading, Honey Truffle won ‘Best Café in Dublin’ at the Restaurant Association of Ireland Awards (RAI).

We are very proud and grateful to have such recognition.

We believe that this is a testament to our great ingredients, hard work by the entire Honey Truffle team, passion and great customers.

Mainly a ‘Food to Go’ offering for those with busy work lives, our Dublin 2 location also has a small stylish seating area to the rear of the café for those who wish to linger.

Honey Truffle also provides outdoor space to the front, heated or sunny (always non-smoking), depending on our weather!

Honey Truffle is independently owned by chef, Eimer Rainsford.

Eimer is surrounded by a terrific young, talented team with similar values of honesty of food and a positive workplace/customer environment.

Eimer has gained vast experience in the food industry. Having chosen early in life to leave behind a career in banking to follow a passion, training in the wonderful Ballymaloe Cooking School and working in the food industry in London. This was followed by many years working with Avoca Cafes before setting up her own Boutique Cookery School, PinkGinger, which she ran for 6 years.
