I have been coming here for years and always get the same thing tea and Victoria sponge cake. I'm always happy. I work as a flight attendant and always recommend this place to passengers who ask where to go. Love this place!!!

This is the most gorgeous little tea room style shop. Full of vintage bits and pieces and the most amazing selection of homemade cakes and puddings. The lunches looked fantastic too and the prices reasonable. Lovely place for lunch or afternoon treat.

You must stop here for a tart and tea when in Dublin. The crust on the tarts is buttery and delicious. So flaky and perfect. We ordered the apple tart, lemon tart, and chocolate tart and all were amazing. We sat outside enjoying the summer sunshine and people watching. It's quick and you will not be disappointed by the quality... More

The cake they made for my daughter's 18th Birthday was great. Very tasty. We arranged it thru our hotel (Harding) and were really glad we did. Thanks!

New (and bigger) café in Cow Street and old location have a huge variety of sweet and savoury tarts and quiches. Mouthwatering. They taste as good as they look and staff are friendly and very helpful.

What a cute place it is. The first impression to me was the deco, which is absolutely traditional and full of irish culture. The atmosphere satisfied me first before I ordered any food and drink. Super vege breakfast and fantastic coffee. I love it !!!

Just minutes from the dublin Castle, make sure to stop at this restaurant. There is two location. Go to the Cows lane location since it has more space and you will be able to enjoy a very cosy covered outdoor terrace. The cakes are very good. We enjoyed the most the meringue and lemon tart. But the apple crumble was... More

Called in here for scones and drinks as we were in the area. Although it was nearly lunchtime we got a seat upstairs. Kids had chocolate scones and we had shared blueberry scone and apple tart. I tasted the chocolate scone and it was quite heavy so was not surprised when kids didn't finish them. Blueberry scone was lovely with... More
