Bewley's actually was extremely successful for over 150 years until it
closed in 2004. The Grafton St. branch has since reopened under new
management but of course it's not the same. I think they still have the
amazing stained-glass windows though.

Anyway, the place I'm talking about wasn't Bewley's, or indeed even
remotely in the same class.
