Stephen who was our host for breakfast every morning was very friendly and we pleased to see him every morning. The breakfast was the usual fare and I enjoyed the fruit and yoghurt and the others in the group seemed to tuck into the cooked breakfast. We did a tour of the museum which was very informative there was also... More

Called in for morning tea a couple of times, great place. The museum was very interesting too, especially as we live at Rathmines, and it gets a mention because of the air disaster

Although ingredients were expensive on LHI, the cafe chef was very generous with the fillings. She used matured cheese and really fresh tomatoes and leaves. She toasted the bread to perfection to make every bite an eating sensation. It was great value for money at $8 for an unforgettable simple meal.

The museum is really interesting. As my husband & I live at Rathmines, very interested to read about the involvement of the history of LHI. A couple of times we also enjoyed coffee & cake.

This is a good little spot, where you can grab a great breakfast for a good price ... The coffee isn't great though

Owned by the same family as Pandanus, Steve and his wife offer a nice selection for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Nice setting and good friendly service. Meals supplied quickly and good value.

If you get a chance, order the squid entree, it is the best tasty and most tender squid I have EVER had!

We found this cafe/restaurant and thought it was just a cafe but found it was open some nights for dinner as well. Excellent food (I believe the owner also owns Pandanus Restaurant). There is often informative talks at the museum by local people so this is great to be able to have a meal afterwards at the same venue. Open... More
