“A fantastic cafe, full of character”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

I have been to the Stage Door Cafe several times now, and it's been great every time. The food is very tasty (I've had the Irish Breakfast and the cheesecake), and the coffee is excellent. The staff are also great and really friendly, the music is first-rate, and the decor is very cool. It's also right in the centre of Dublin, in Temple Bar, and the seats outside are great for watching the world go by.

“Nice cafe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

Nice small cafe in Temple Bar. Perfect for a coffee and slice of cake in the afternoon. The cakes are all great, I'd recommend the pecan pie or lemon meringue!

“Good for a snack, close to temple bar”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

Spanish themed cafe in Temple Bar area. Food was good, service was too. Fun, quirky atmosphere. Perhaps best going for breakfast, lunch or a snack though.

“Interesting little place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

Had a quick lunch here recently - nice and tasty Panini and my Dad had soup - good friendly service - lots of places to eat around here but there were a few sat outside on the pavement and it seemed busier than the others so we thought this must be good !

“A cozy cafe with extremely friendly staff.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

It was a relief to stumble upon this cozy cafe and relax among the eccentric decor with a good cup of coffee. Our stay was made more pleasant by the extremely friendly and helpful staff that were only too pleased to give advice and tips on the local area (such as places to eat, drink, visit and places to avoid). I would recommend this cafe to anyone in or around the Temple Bar area.
