The Happy Pear began in our Greystones shop, in 2004. Dave and Steve had a dream of making the world a healthier and happier place, and they started by opening a simple fruit and veg shop in their hometown. Their passion for plant-based food led them to open the cafe a year later, and now, 18 years on, the shop and cafe continue to be a hub of community, delicious plant-based food, and positivity, for locals and visitors alike.
Our second home, since it’s establishment in 2005 a year after the opening of our veg shop, Dave and Steve have eaten almost every meal here! Home to Irelands best organic plant-based dishes - A mecca of delicious curries, vegan lasagnas, soups, bakes and a large selection of salads, dips, breads and not too mention our selection of vegan deserts to turn any carnivore. Aside from it’s growing size the cafe has remained true to its original health driven charm, promoting a variety of veg in all it’s dishes and to top it all off we serve the best coffee in town, the beans coming from our very own coffee roastery.
Where it all began! Once just an organic fruit and veg shop, now also a host to an array of healthy snacks, supplements, and essential dried goods. Our focus is on organic and local, we have a huge variety in fruit and veg with minimal plastic used. Want the tastiest mango, apple, fig or butternut squash you can buy, look no further! You’ll be greeted by our charming shop keeper who will ensure you get the ripest and most delicious of goods.
Our newest and most exciting addition. An artisanal bakery that uses traditional sourdough methods and regenerative local organic flours was born in 2020, and since it’s establishment we have literally been selling out on a daily basis! Think the freshest sourdough breads, baguettes, soda bread, cinnamon swirls, chocolate buns, croissants, banana breads, and cake cake cake! And guess what it’s all fully vegan!
