The Stormy Cup Story

We are kind of the unofficial Donaghadee Museum as we have over 1000 Items of local and Irish history on our walls.

The Stormy Cup has also a long family tradition.

My great-grand father was born in Hamburg, Germany in 1890 and met a ballerina when he was 18.

The family wasn’t a great fan of hers so they ran away to Vienna for her to dance at the theatre. My great grandfather didn’t really know what to do so he started an apprenticeship at the King’s Court Bakery and Cafe.

Many years later he worked himself up to the Master Pastry Chef at the King’s Court and returned to Hamburg and opened his Vienna Style Coffee house which was taken over by my grandfather who taught me cooking, baking and ice cream making.

9 years ago I met a beautiful girl from Donaghadee on travels and ended up “running away with her” to her wonderful home town to continue the family tradition.

The first lease my great Grandfather signed for his coffee shop is on the wall at the Stormy Cup.
