Consistently good value, service and quality

A colleague and I, when catching up, all too infrequently lately, almost always come to this cafe as it is near our offices and we genuinely like the place. They always have a lunch special soup/ham melt combo - the soup is always good, homemade fare and the ham melt is ham, melted cheese and... read more

I went in with optimism but was very disappointed. Nice location, place itself is fine but very low quality food. There is lots of choice in the area be wise and choose elsewhere! A shame it is so poor...

Popped in for quick snack here. The French Toast on display really tempted me, and, it did not disappoint together with a large hot coffee I felt ready to face the day. Friendly efficient service and very good value. I will be back

In Dublin for a business trip a group of 5 of us decided to miss the hotel breakfast and try this place which we just came across walking to the first meeting. Clean, inviting and warm reception from this modern style cafe. The 5 breakfasts were served promptly and professionally. We were all different selections of food but all were... More

I work in Dublin quite often. I was driving past ruhbarb cafe and thought I'd pull in to get some lunch as it looked very nice from the outside. I walked in and was the only person there bar one man finishing up. I was given a menu and told of the special. A waitress came down to take my... More

go here regularly enough for breakfast and while the food is good, the prices are average for Dublin. However the selection is not great which is not surprising given the sparce cooking facilities available to the staff. The breakfast is good but I would recommend the 'Paul's Special' which is a little bit different and the best value.

We visited this cafe whilst staying at a nearby hotel, on the whole eating out seems to be expensive everywhere in Dublin, so it's a case of finding the best you can for your Euro. This was a nice full cooked breakfast, arrived quickly, with a mountain of toast on lovely fresh bread. The staff were very polite and helpful,... More

Went in for breakfast at 10am on Saturday morning - there was one member of staff who was swept off her feet - we had ordered and then realised this could take a while!! So we didn't like to get up and leave! We did get breakfast - after about 20 minutes and then 10 minutes later got our drinks... More

Noticing the mad green exterior and having no time to try out the lunch menu, my mother and I stepped inside and ordered tea and scones in the Pembroke location (note second one in Camden Street). We were lucky to get a seat, as it was very busy around 1.30pm. There was one staff member, who was very quick to... More

Rhubarb is a little cafe with the beast Breakfast in Dublin. Although their was only one person working, she was very efficant and managed to give excellent service. The prices are also very reasonable.
