Thursday's #ShopForIreland guide

Three new ways to support local businesses.


Even though we're all still practising social distancing and most of us are working from home, we still want to help support Irish food and drink producers. 

We've decided to help our readers #ShopForIreland so we'll be posting every day to highlight producers around Ireland. Get in touch on our social channels with your suggestions on who we should write about.

Sona Box

The team behind Sprezzatura have come with an innovative way to support local suppliers and continue the ethos of the restaurant by setting up Sona Box. For €30 per person, customers can choose five main courses, which will include Sprezzatura favourites as well as new dishes with Mexican influences, Asian ingredients and more. You can also add on additional elements including breads, spreads and more. €1.50 from each box will be donated to Sona Box's charity partners, which include the Dublin Simon Community and ALONE. Staying strong to the Sprezzatura ethos, Sona Box strives to be as sustainable as possible, with compostable packaging and step-by-step recipes available online.

Initially, Sona Box will only available for delivery in Dublin, but plans are in place for rapid expansion. Orders will be on a first-come, first-served basis, so sign up at sonabox.ie now.

Two Boys Brew

Drumcondra's Two Boys Brew is back open for business, much to the joy of the local community. There is a takeaway menu available for click and collect, plus social distancing measures are fully in place for locals to pop in and order coffee, pastries and more to-go. For more info or to see the menu, click here.

Two Pups Coffee

Another Dublin favourite has reopened for takeaway. The usual coffee menu is available alongside cakes, Firehouse Bakery sourdough and a small takeaway food menu. If you've been missing your daily pastry and takeout coffee, you can now pop into the Francis Street store to grab your fix.
