Yummy breakfast

We had breakfast in the very quiet food hall in the basement (did not realise there was a cafe'): amazing scones - I had a pear hazelnut one - in a pretty setting. Cappuccino was not great but I will remember the scone for a very long time

I loved the design of the place and the... More

My girlfriend and I ate here on a Thursday lunchtime and will definitely come back next time we are in Dublin. There was a small queue but we were seated within 5 minutes and the atmosphere was really good. We had the Middle Eastern mezze and the food was fantastic and great value. The staff were attentive and friendly, could... More

Had breakfast here and it was fantastic. We had selection of breads, French toast and bacon and the scrambled eggs. Portions large but absolutely delicious. The bottomless coffee was also great. The staff were all very welcoming we will definitely eat there again.

We had Sunday brunch with some friends recently. Lovely ambiance & cosy atmosphere. Staff were excellent, taking 7 orders without writing anything down led to a lot of nervous glances being exchanged around the table , However we need not have worried - all arrived exactly as ordered! All were lovely - I highly recommend the sausages! The only drawback... More

Great cakes, coffees and friendly stuff. Atmosphere here is cosy and vintage. But in the lunch time it is overcrowded. Probably you'll have to wait a few minutes for your table but it worth it!

I had the pleasure of being in this café recently, my first time and certainly won't be my last time! Had the lovely coffee and scone. The menu looked very nice and I hope to take advantage of it very soon.

From the restaurant on the top floor down to the coffee shop on the basement... Every nook and cranny begs to be explored. A delightful visit! After indulging with a fabulous lunch we actually went back for scones for tea! Never done that anywhere else! Enjoy their cookery book SO much! Great store!
