Chez Max AF

Chez Max at the Alliance Française Dublin opened its doors in 2019. In tune with the Chez Max ‘everything French’ philosophy, the epicerie serves homemade filled baguettes on freshly baked bread as well as superb lunchtime salads.

Our Epicerie also offers an extensive range of exclusively French products, which are otherwise not available here in Ireland. Choose from our range of baking goods, chocolates & sweets, sodas or why not try our gourmet cassoulet, foie gras and patés.

Café – Sandwishes/Salads

We bake our pastries every morning for you to enjoy with our Café Richard coffee – a blend, which employs the most technologically advanced, roasting techniques in a state of the art factory in Paris. Now you too can bring this passion of French Touch, French Taste, into your everyday life..
