Arnotts have officially launched the ‘Oh What Fun’ Christmas Pop-Up Café, featuring some extra special festive favourite treats for both children and adults to enjoy. Whether it is to take a well-deserved break from Christmas shopping or to entertain the kids while they wait for the all-important visit with Santa, the café is the perfect way to spend a festive afternoon.

The central theme of the pop-up café, which is located on Level 2, is that of fun and sharing, working with small Irish artisan suppliers to create imaginative menus for the whole family to enjoy.

There are three sharing options to choose from: the Taste of Christmas includes a seasonal soup shooter, turkey and brie mini sandwich on toasted rye bread, duo of Irish cheeses served with festive chutney and winter berries and a Christmas choux bun and mince pies. The Oh What Fun Favourites option is made up of a Christmas choux bun, traditional mince pie, festive macaron, spiced hot chocolate bon bon served with steamed milk and gourmet marshmallow. Lastly, the Toy Soldier Selection Box was created especially with kids in mind, with a ham and cheese toastie and firm Christmas favourites including gingerbread men, a Christmas cupcake, and a hot milk chocolate bon bon served with steamed vanilla milk and gourmet marshmallow.

Highlighting produce from Irish artisan suppliers is central to the concept of the ‘Oh What Fun’ Café, with ingredients sourced from; Arcane Chocolate, Dublin; Mallow Mia, County Donegal; and Ariosa Coffee, County Meath.

The ‘Oh what Fun’ Café is open on Level 2 of Arnotts from Monday to Sunday. For opening hours please visit Prices start at €14 for two people sharing.
