I absolutely love here for breakfast,lunch,dinner and supper club. There is always a great buzz about the place and the food is excellent. Everything is so tasty and thought out. I'm a major fan of the tiger prawn salad and highly recommend it. The supper club is one that can't be missed. Last time I was at the supper club... More

I went here with my daughter who is coeliac, they have good gluten free options on the menu and even had soya milk hot chocolate which I have found that a lot of small cafes do no have. I had the soup and fish cakes with side salad and would have to say they were the best I have tasted.... More

Lovely for lazy Sunday brunch. Stopped by there and had the eggs benedict. Yum! Great coffee too. Terenue is easy to get to. Busy but got a seat after a short wait.

We had really nice meals here. I like the philosophy of the food, the taste, and the quality. A local business well worth supporting. Looking forward to my next meal there. What a pity the cooking classes weren't available at the time of year we went.

We have eaten here many times and they serve the best French toast made with brioche and served with maple syrup berries and cream . Always a winner the only small problem is the place fills up and can be a tight squeeze but they manage so we try to go off peak when it's not so busy. Have never... More

I'd been to the Lovely Food Company in Terenure over a year ago when passing by for lunch and was seriously impressed with the quality of food and friendliness of staff. I was delighted to see a 2nd Lovely Food Company pop up in Drumcondra just down the road from me. They've managed to replicate the ambiance and the warm... More

Nothing better than starting a Sunday with a lazy brunch especially when everything on the menu looks delish! Such a great welcome from the team, great coffees, lovely service and even ended up taking some chocolate biscuit cake away for a treat later as I couldn't resist it (and was too full after brunch to attempt it). I'll be back!
