Right in the heart of Dublin near Dublin Castle. Small but friendly staff and great food. We enjoyed our first full Irish breakfast here.

Bad thing about nice places is they get discovered and get busy. Often a waiting queue to get in. Lunch/brunch is nice though and the employees are friendly (but busy)

This quaint little tea room sits in the middle of Dublin's famed Temple Bar district across the street from Dublin Castle on Dame street (they have a more spacious and upscale venue about a block away on Cows Lane). This small shop seats about 10 people and is strictly breakfast, lunch and tea/coffee with a fantastic array of tasty pastries.... More

This is a fab place but so busy that the experience is muted a little. We went here because my daughter is an enormous fan. The brownies are delicious and I had chocolate pecan pie. I suspect the secret to success may be lashings of butter but no worries, it's so hard to get a table, you won't visit too... More

Quaint and charming place. All the food, soup, breads and deserts are made there. We had the white bean and leek soup and mozzarella sandwich which was served on foccaci bread. The staff very attentive and friendly. We were to full to have dessert, so we had it wrapped to go. Carrot cake and raseberry muffins were to die for.... More

Great breakfast in an intimate environment. Shame we were the only customers on a weekday at 830 AM, but many were coming in and out for takeaway coffee and a baked good. And what baked goods they were. Simply delicious. The only minor quibble is with the unbelievably limited breakfast menu... which I understand the need for, BUT, it would... More

This is such a great tea room: very quirky and dainty, the china and accessories are really spot on. Delicious tarts and lunches (all the classics: especially their chocolate ganache and Baileys cheesecake is unbelievably yummy!!!), absolutely well worth a visit when you're in Dublin, and they sell loads of fun accessories that make truly great souvenirs. Very centrally located,... More

I live close by this place and it's my favourite coffee shop in Dublin. Great friendly and efficient staff. Wonderful home baked cakes, bread, soup and a lovely vegetarian breakfast. I would eat there everyday if it was possible for me. It's very busy but always worth the wait for a seat.

Thank LouiseMBarrett

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.
