Twin brothers David and Stephen Flynn - the recipe-creating entrepreneurs behind The Happy Pear - were featured on an episode of hit Netflix show Somebody Feed Phil released this week.
The series features Phil Rosenthal - the creator of sitcom Everybody Loves Raymond - on a Bourdain-esque tour of the food and culture of famous culinary destinations.
Rosenthal first joined the Flynns in Ireland's Greystones, where he watched the pair embark on a daily ritual of jumping into icy cold waters prior to guiding him through the area's food scene.
Described by Rosenthal as the 'most enthusiastic people' he's ever met, the three-time cookbook authors, product creators, market owners, and popular YouTube personalities are the local authority on plant-based eating.
As such, the Flynn's brought Rosenthal to the 'appropriately named' The Happy Pear - their breakfast spot and grocer - to sample some of the items offered at the shop, including its signature porridge.
Originally offered free as a means of promotion, the pair have continued to feed locals a complimentary breakfast simply 'because they want to'.
The Dublin episode of Somebody Feed Phil is available to watch in the show's second season on Netflix.
