Having wandered around the food market in the People's Park and salivating over a lot of the food there, we discovered that between my wife and I, we had a sum total of €5 cash between us... Not enough for one, let alone two of us and a hungry four year old... We decided to have a walk up the... More

It is an okayish place, but not excellent. Their pies and lunch menu is very nice, the service is good, you don't have to wait long to be served. breakfast is average, though. Pancakes were too oily, I actually disliked them. The full breakfast was average. Scones were nice. Coffee average. The good thing is their pies. very nice selection... More

Had lunch in this fine establishment, cosy welcoming and overall honest to goodness food. Chicken & mushroom pie so flavoursome with option of sides. Opted for the salad... To balance things off ;-), lovely selection of fresh wholesome home cooked & freshly prepared foods. My only regret was that I was too full to sample the fine selection of deserts... More

Dear Rozbell, Many thanks for the review, all I can say is you are damned if you do and damned if you dont! We recently got feedback from a customer about too much seasoning and I passed on this info to our chefs, this I imagine is why the seasoning is on the light side. We cook our food on... More

This was a great cafe for a quick bite to eat. I had the mac and cheese, which was delicious. Reasonable prices and free wifi which was a bonus for me as a solo traveler. Friendly staff.

Great coffee, great service, great food :-) in most mornings for coffee, always smiling and cheerful, always a moving queue. Don't get much food but I hear the apple pie is amazing. Definitely worth a visit. Can't say any coffee matches with the price and the quality, keeps me awake anyway! :-)

My sister and I came here for a late breakfast after landing in Ireland. We had the potato and leek soup with a BLT panini. It was such a cute place on the main street of Dun Laoghaire. Staff was friendly and attentive.
