I had vegetarian breakfast here and it was delicious. The cakes are super yummy just like those made at home. Very friendly staff. Loved this place. Would definetly go there again and recommend it as a "must try" in Dublin.

Great cake (chocolate and almond tart) and excellent coffee. Friendly staff. Efficient service. Cute place - full of happy afternoon tea-takers. What's not to like?

Had breakfast her a couple of times..absolutely delicious..the bacon and leek potato cakes with two freshly poached egg, garnished with chopped chives were very good as was everyone else's choice. The service was excellent with lovely waitresses. The cakes looked so good, just too early...the assortment of lovely China cups and saucers added t our enjoyment

My partner in dine and I headed here for brunch on Sunday rather than risk a hotel breakfast buffet. I had the hearty fry which was just hearty enough, and my partner had the smoked salmon and scrambled eggs. Both were washed down with a large red pot of strong tea. This cafe is small and crowded but the service... More

Diabolical. The cake looked amazing, but considering the price, was a total rip off. We ordered two Irish coffees, which were also massively disappointing. We had an Irish coffee from almost everywhere we visited in Dublin, and this was by far the worst. Overall, overpriced, disappointing and poor service. However, the larger Queen of Tarts down the road was fantastic.... More

BY far the best pastry shop and breakfast hang out in Dublin. Conveniently located not far from Temple Bar, The egg dishes were outstanding and the pastry was divine. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Scones with jam were better than in the finest tea shoppes in England. Highly recommended.

visited for brunch during a trip to Dublin. Had only recently heard about this place - didn't realise it was there so long. Didn't disappoint! Make sure you are hungry if you are having something before your cake/tart/pastry as the portions are very generous!! We both had the soup and I had the breakfast frittata and my wife the vegetarian... More

My wife and I had a scone each both where of poor quality as in being just not very nice and nothing special also wife had coffee and i had hot chocolate which was cold when served it felt like every thing was geared to getting you to finish up quick just to free up another table. Nicer and more... More

Excellent choice of patisseries. We particularly enjoyed the baked New York cheesecake. The hot chocolate was delicious - very chocolatey and nicely presented, as were the cakes. Staff were very friendly with excellent attention to detail. They presented the cream in a separate pot and added a berry which was a nice touch. Highly recommended. No wonder it is so... More
