Fado is known for its classic Irish pub ambience and cuisine. With soccer games on the TV and Guinness on top, Fado Irish Pub is a beloved spot for anyone with an appreciation for Irish culture. And what would a classic Irish pub be without a delicious cup of Irish coffee? Fado Irish Coffee is a caffeinated cocktail topped with cream and a cinnamon swirl. However, we don’t recommend imbibing in a Fado Irish Coffee before work. You probably wouldn’t get much accomplished.
