A pastry shop and coffee house, where the pleasures of food are as important to us as our rich history and our pastry making practices. Fine Things can be anything – fine deserts, fine cakes, fine coffee – all freshly made and tasting great. Fine Things, based in Arthurs Quay Shopping Center Limerick, is a new concept in coffee shops - We started Fine Things because Limerick needed something different to the other coffee shops and bakeries. Fine Things is a coffee shop with a difference – all the cakes, scones and sandwiches are made to customer’s requests.

I arrived this morning for my breakfast/ mid morning coffee. Have to say was excited by the offerings and ordered a latte, macaroon & cookie. Macaroon may not have been the best macaroon I've ever tasted but it was tasty and flavourful the cookie was dry and the latte really good. The service was... read more

This little cafe ( which we found quite by accident on our first day in Limerick) provides good food and great service. It was the only place open so early on a Sunday morning. HIt the spot.

Fine Things is a great place to have either lunch or a quick coffee. The owner Shammy is very friendly and so is the staff. The food is delicious and the cakes are very tasty and hard to resist. Highly recommend.

Upon arriving in Limerick, we needed some breakfast and fast. A local man walked by and chatted and suggested this little tucked away cafe. Delicious pastry and breakfast sandwiches and the most friendly people behind the counter. Located in Arthur's Quay, it was the only place open early on Sunday morning. Everything seems homemade and put together right there. It... More

We picked up a supply of macaroons, one of every colour (there were a lot of colours). Yummy scrumptious treat, we have to go back for more.

The coffee cake was lovely and the staff made the place. It might not look like much but don't be fooled the homemade cakes are just that homemade.

This is a very convenient location for me so I get lunch to-go here very often. I am never disappointed, sandwiches are always fresh, and the produce is always high quality. There is a stark difference between this and the offerings at the sandwich bars in chain supermarkets, even though the price is the same. I love the soup, always... More
