Feel bad leaving a negative review because I can see how the food was good but it wasn't tailored to my liking. Ordered vegetarian breakfast and was explicitly clear that I wanted my poached eggs really hard. Coffee arrived which was really tasty. Breakfast arrived and the plate was swimming in water, I cut into my eggs and not only... More

Dear Linda L, I'm writing to apologise for the poor experience you had on Saturday morning. The truth is we had our Christmas Party on Friday night and everyone was feeling a little unwell on Saturday and things were not as sharp as they should have been. I have spoken to all staff who were working on that day and... More

Sadly I only discovered Poppies last week, yet it has been open for about 30 years. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the thing I like the best, they will serve you what you want and the way you want it. Their cakes are to die for especially their Apple Pies. The next time you are Enniskerry Village... More

Spotted this place during an after dinner walk and decided to try it for breakfast. So glad we did! The food was fresh and tasty. I had a berry scone that was delicious and the coffee was ideal.

Svadlava was a fun and energetic server. The owner, Peter was bright, funny, and welcoming. We ate there five out of eight days in Irrland. The food was AMAZING!!! You must try the scones, Shepards pie, and the classic full Irish breakfast! Breakfast back home in the US will never seem the same. Wonderful cafe! Matt Hughes Cle Elum, WA.... More

Be aware that the portions are big and the food is really good quality, tastes like home. We asked for a soup (that comes with a delicious scone) and a chicken poppy (something local) that comes with salad. It was almost impossible to finish it! Perhaps because I'm used to eat small portions, but it is worth to share this.
