Great coffee House but no buggy wheelchair access!!!

Sadly, staff informed a member of my family that there was no lift and they offered no assistance with the child's buggy. Infact they said it was a protected building and this is why no lifts are there! Look around...modern infrastructure!; The mother had to wait at the front door until we... read more

The quiche we had was more like scrambled eggs in pastry and cold scrambled eggs aint great. My choice of salads was : cous cous, totally unflavoured with Anything and: Caesar salad, (or so I was told when I asked) just roughly chopped lettuce with a couple chunks of aubergine (again I'm not sure because I didn't taste them) tossed...

Great buffet breakfast here - feels weird eating in a department store cafe but the variety of food on offer is great. Definitely recommend it.

Was really looking forward to trying here due to other TA reviews was some what disappointed though. I had a pot of tea and apple crumble served hot with ice-cream, this was tasty enough. Though the big disappointment was the lemon drizzle cake my husband had with his coffee, it was dry verging on stale!! I am an experienced home... More

When we saw it was cafeteria style rather than waitress service we hesitated on the likely freshness of the cooked breakfast but on closer examination it all looked good with rapid turnover and so we decided to stay. The fry, the porridge and the wheaten bread all went down well and filled us up. We managed to get a window... More

Stayed in Dublin three days, ate breakfast here twice (tried a different venue on day two, shouldn't have bothered). Excellent value for money, superb scrambled eggs, tasty sausages and bacon, choice of black or white pudding , mushrooms, tomatoes etc two toast, pot of tea or coffee €7.50. Lovely and clean, well worth a visit.
