I stopped in Gusto for breakfast on a recent trip and was expecting the same fare as most cafes--yogurt parfaits and egg sandwiches. Boy, was I pleasantly surprised! For breakfast they had a variety of "bruschettas" which were various toppings served on toast. I got...More

Lunch here is only divine! The goats cheese wrap toasted is only stunning, mouth watering! Great value too. Great coffee. Seating is tight and all high so not overly suitable for young children but I would recommend regardless! A must go to place!!!

I ate lunch here recently and availed of the sandwich, soup and Americano for €10. The soup and sandwich were delicious and excellent value. I would highly recommend. I got my sandwich in ciabatta but the wholemeal looked excellent aswell. A great lunch spot.
