Just as good as I remembered

Absolutely love this place. Still as good as I remember from previous trips to Dublin. Easily one of the best breakfasts in town. Already looking forward to going again.

Beautiful little place, all cozy throw cushions and red hearts... There's not actually a ridiculously large menu but myself and my mam ordered a bacon and vegetable tart. It arrived with a lovely salad covered in a bloody delicious vinegarette... I have never been a salad lover and I consider myself converted! The tart was absolutely delicious, really tasty and...

If you're having a stroll down Cow's Lane, this is a lovely spot for a coffee and a pastry. I'd recommend visiting at the weekend when various artists & artisans have stalls laid out with handmade items of various descriptions. Easily a couple of hours browsing and eating!

Bit of a long wait when we went to the main restaurant, so we headed to their smaller counterpart and were able to be seated faster. The food was so good - like heaven. Delicious french toast, the scones and cream were amazing. I highly recommend stopping in just for a scone. The staff nice and friendly.

I went there with a friend to drink a cappuccino and eat a slice of tart. I choose the chocolate/pecan pie tart and definitely it was a good choice ! The waiters are really nice and the atmosphere is perfect for a good moment between girls.

I LOVE this place. It's like going to dessert heaven. If Willy Wonka did pies & pastries, it would be here. And the normal food is delicious too. I brought my kids and their eyes popped out of their heads. When you walk in the door the pure indulgence of sweet delights is overwhelming and intoxicating. I cannot recommend this... More
