Went for breakfast today after a couple of years absence from this cafe to discover not only are the eggs still over cooked but coffee was really bad. Within minutes of receiving food we were asked if all ok so had not checked the eggs (poached) so were unaware they were over cooked however while first coffee tasted 'stewed' the... More

Ordered the roasted marrow bones with parsley and caper salad and it was delicious. The marrow was delicious slathered on toasted sourdough, and garnished with the parsley caper salad topped with a sprinkle of sea salt. Lovely combination nicely presented. Staff was friendly and service very good. Lovely setting and a pleasant place to dine on a dreary day after... More

Recently had an amazing crab linguini which I devoured and only very grudgingly offered others a taste. The food is great, the cakes are delicious (if you have room left!), and their GreenBean coffee is a perfect finisher. Often pop in for tea and cake with friends, it is an excellent place to chat for an hour.

I hadn't been to this cafe in years, but my sister and I went for lunch following a recommendation from our parents. I don't know why I waited so long to return - we had such a lovely experience. The wait staff were efficient and kind. Most tables were occupied. It's lovely to escape from the busy shopping streets and... More

I have eaten here on several occasions in the past and always liked the food. I hadn't been for quite a while and so popped in for a late lunch recently. I was very disappointed with the food and service. I ordered a crab, chilli and coriander tagliatelle and to say I was disappointed, is putting it mildly. It came... More

From sipping tea from miss-matched china cups, to eating fluffy pancakes and delicious eggs Florentine, while looking at contemporary Irish artworks around the room, breakfast at this cafe is like no other. It is always busy and there is often a queue to be seated. I love coming here for breakfast and would recommend it to anyone.

Thank J D
