“l'habit ne fait pas le moine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

A brilliant find in the heart of rathgar, parking is somewhat difficult to acquire. On viewing the facade one might instantly turn their eye to the newly decorated bijou cafe across the way, however one must grab the opportunity to try something new.on entering the cafe do not be disheartened by the uncomfortable chairs and mass produced tables. On seeing the menu the endless opportunities will have you baffled. An endless array of wonderfully healthy dishes and the opportunity to have an all day breakfast. The serving size was generous , the food tasty but some ballymaloe relish would have not gone astray. The service comes with a smile and one will leave this cafe feeling fuller and warmer.

“Excellent - in context!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

This is a fairly basic cafe - where builders and businessmen eat. Stopped for breakfast en route south and had a 'healthier' option breakfast of scrambled eggs on brown bread with tea.
My serving was perfect and hit the spot. Having last tried this place about four years ago, I did not relish the prospect of the big breakfast fry up (as a number of the other diners were tucking into). Happy to have made the choice but unless on my own, would probably not try this for lunch or dinner.

“Cramped”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

Tables are too close together, almost felt like I should join in with the conversation at the next table. Good food though and is reasonably priced. The decor is a bit dated.

“Nice spot but a couple of things irked me.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

Tasty food but hot food should not be served on cold dishes. Nothing worse than cold eggs. Eggs Benedict came with cold hollandaise and they would not warm it. Good service though.
