It's 1941. Europe is at war, Ireland remains neutral, and at Bewley's Café on Grafton Street, Head Waiter Josef Kellner is fighting battles of his own. A new arrival from Vienna, he knows exactly how coffeehouses should be run and he's not afraid to tell you. In detail. When a colleague goes missing while on shift, he sets out on a mission to find him. Join Josef on his search through the nooks, crannies and secrets of Bewley’s Cafe.

 

A witty and eccentric journey through the history of Bewley's Cafe and its place in European coffeehouse culture - with a little adventure on the side!
