Lovely wee cake shop, blueberry scones were fab. Very busy and the one draw back is that they don't let you linger as there are people queuing for tables all the time, but worth the visit, we will be back.

Had a tip from a Dubliner to stop here for lunch, and we were glad we did. Excellent fresh vegetable tart with salad. The desserts looked amazing.

Had a wonderful lunch here after a long walk. The deserts were to die for. Nice glass of Prosecco as well

Whenever I walked near this place, I saw it crowded, so I decided I would stop when I had the chance to seat. I did not have that chance so I decided to enter and take something away. I took a strawberry cheescake and a few pistacchio and lemon cookies. Everything was good but the service, probably because it's always... More

I got a table after standing outside and was told to leave my seat as other people were waiting outside. I would not visit again as it was embarrassing.

Sad we didn't discover this place until the second-to-last day in Dublin. Their pastries are quite good. Huge tasty scones. I also ordered a fruit and yogurt dish with breakfast. Great mix of really fresh fruit, and not just some apples and bananas. Also, their coffee is really good. Quite dark and strong.

One of the best place for a cake in Dublin. Inexpensive price in the heart of Temple bar. Some days you might have to wait for a seat but it totally worth it.

The tarts were just okay, but the berry-apple crumble was stellar. Very busy but service was quick. All wrapped up in a box with a bow.

We enjoyed this tiny restaurant (by North American standards) whilst enjoying the City Sightseeing Tour of Dublin. Wanting a place for lunch, we were extremely happy with a bowl of minestrone soup and homemade bread. Delicious! Could not resist trying two of their desserts- fruit crumble and chocolate pecan pie. We were not disappointed...,glad we do not live in Dublin... More

I've been here during my last trip to Dublin already which already shows how much I liked it. The breakfast is fantastic and I really like the cosy atmosphere. But what you really need to try is the pumpkin pie. If I could I would never eat anything else again!

A friendly restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and delicious baked goods throughout the day. We have two locations in Dublin City Centre across from Dublin Castle, two minutes apart from each other. Drop in for a homemade scone with raspberry jam and cream, or a seasonal savoury tart.
