When Bia Blasta was set up in 2007, we hoped that our concept would be a success and we had a strong feeling that it could be... Although it definitely helped that the plan was simple. We wanted to bring good quality food and coffee to Drumcondra and we like to think that is exactly what we did.
By the time we started throwing ideas around about bringing this simple concept to reality - chats that usually took place in our childhood home just up the road from Bia Blasta - all of us had already gained plenty of experience in the services industry and at that point it just seemed to make sense for us to go out on our own, to have an adventure, to take a risk, to put our own stamp on what we would be doing. In other words, to open Bia Blasta.
That all seems a long time ago now and a lot has happened since then. Over the last 13 years, we have seen a lot of people come through our door, made a lot of coffees and even more sandwiches, but most importantly we have made a lot of friends along the way. Our family have set down roots on Millbourne Avenue and we look forward to seeing how the rest of the adventure goes!
