We stopped by this cafe after a long walk for a spot of lunch and ordered the soup of the day with cheese and ham toastie. Food was absolutely delicious and plentiful. The cafe is somewhat small and might struggle to accommodate larger groups.

This is a fine and functional little café across the road from Matt The Threshers. Good service from the staff but it lacks any atmosphere. I hate the fact that they microwave the eggs for breakfast so tend to stick to a coffee and toast when I visit.

There's a lack of places in Dublin that serve a mix of good food, nice and quiet tables to eat and helpful and smiling staff. But this is one of that places! I came here to have lunch often and I really enjoy it.

I do feel that the Rhubarb Cafe is a good place to grab a quick breakfast. It is good value and the menu offers a fair choice of hot dishes or scones etc.etc. Their coffee is particularly good. Not overly sophisticated, but at 9.00 in the morning, it suits. And they do provide newspapers.

Have had early breakfast here a number of times when i have had meetings in the area. Nice to pop in for a quick poached egg on toast, and have a read of the paper while enjoying your breakfast. Tends to start to get bust from about 8.30 on so get in early. Friendly service and handy location.

I went in with optimism but was very disappointed. Nice location, place itself is fine but very low quality food. There is lots of choice in the area be wise and choose elsewhere! A shame it is so poor...

Popped in for quick snack here. The French Toast on display really tempted me, and, it did not disappoint together with a large hot coffee I felt ready to face the day. Friendly efficient service and very good value. I will be back

In Dublin for a business trip a group of 5 of us decided to miss the hotel breakfast and try this place which we just came across walking to the first meeting. Clean, inviting and warm reception from this modern style cafe. The 5 breakfasts were served promptly and professionally. We were all different selections of food but all were... More

I work in Dublin quite often. I was driving past ruhbarb cafe and thought I'd pull in to get some lunch as it looked very nice from the outside. I walked in and was the only person there bar one man finishing up. I was given a menu and told of the special. A waitress came down to take my... More
