I had the beef stew and Guinness pie, with mashed and craft beer. It was very delicious and I'll definitely recommend the cafe to friends and family for quality of food at a very reasonable price.

My friend suggested that we try this place and I'm glad we did! It's a little hole in the wall place and you have to look for it... They offer about half a dozen pie options from beef to chicken to veggie so there is something for everyone. I had the beef and Guinness pie, mashed potatoes, gravy and a... More

I was quite disappointed by the experience. I absolutely LOVE a good pie, potato and mushy peas. The staff member (owner?) was very friendly, and the pie was actually quite good, good short pastry, and a good quantity of filling. The peas were OK, the potato was OK but It seemed to be a pre-processed item, and not made on... More

We visited this little pie shop on Easter Sunday for a quick lunch during a short trip to Dublin. The owner was so friendly and welcoming. I had a beef and Guinness pie which was really tasty, well made, with great pastry and tender beef - all in all a fantastic pie! The mash was very tasty, even my mash-hating... More

This is a tiny shop on a side street off Temple Bar. If we hadn't been told to look for it we would have missed out on one of the most delicious and economical meals we've ever had! Delicious home made pot pies in a variety of flavors. We tried beef & Guinness and chicken leek. Sheer heaven. The owner... More

If you like pies you will love this place. The staff member was helpful and friendly. Don't expect fancy food, just plain and simple.

Small little place in Temple Bar with several choices for a hot pie meal. I chose the special of the day which was the chicken and leek pie for €5. I did not order the full meal with mashed potatoes and peas because I was eating a late lunch, but the pie was very filling and very tasty! I would... More

A good place to stop if you are starving and need a hearty meal! I got the pie, a side of mash potato (and gravy) and a bottle of beer for 10 euros. All of them were pretty good and the whole thing was very filling. It's quite like a cafeteria on the inside, so you wouldn't go for the... More
