Once a tavern built in 1752 by William Doyle, of the Doyles of Doylestown, PA, then an inn known as The Fountain House, then a bank, now, not surprisingly, the shelter for a mega Starbucks. That’s food heritage for you.

"The Bewley family were Quakers who originated in France and moved to Ireland in the 18th century. They entered the tea trade, and in 1835 Samuel Bewley and his son landed an unprecedented cargo of 2,099 chests of tea shipped directly from China to Dublin, thereby breaking the East India Tea Company’s monopoly. The Bewley family subsequently expanded into the coffee trade and in the late 19th century they opened cafes in Georges Street (1894) and Westmoreland Street (1896) in Dublin." Bewley’s iconic Grafton Street Oriental Cafe was opened in 1927. Photos via Aging Hippie Tales
