Had to stop in and taste a yummy treat. It was fabulous. Not a very big place, so be quick on grabbing a seat. Many choices of baked treats coming in to view from the baker from their other location down the road.

We had a lovely breakfast here, sitting outside under the awning. Super friendly staff and tasty scones and coffee. This place was near our hotel and open earlier than some of the other restaurants.

I don't think so and you would loose out on the fantastic environment and atmosphere not going into the cafe itself!

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.
