This lovely restaurant could easily be overlooked from the outside as it is among corner shop style eateries and services, but inside it has classy decor and a cosy, intimate ambiance. The restaurant came highly recommended by the people we were staying with, especially the house white wine and starters which could be enough for a small main! The main... More

Super little local cafe serving freshly made food that tastes amazing. Had a really lovely lunch there called superfood salad. My partner had their gorgeous fish cakes. Quick friendly service. I definitely will be back to try out the rest of their fab menu.

Really tasty food, great service and a great cup of tea. I had the eggs florentine:poached with spinach on sourdough, tomatoes and the 'home-made' fries which were fried potatoes. It was scrumptious. I'll be back to try one of the many tasty looking desserts 😋 Recommend it to all 😊

Vibrant urban village restaurant with reliable breakfasts, lunches and dinners with excellent coffee. Dinner here is a real experience and the wine list is great, especially the house white.

On a girl's trip visiting my local Dublin friend, we wanted to eat some yummy breakfast yet find a neighborhood gem with a chill vibe. I agree with others that finding street parking was a challenge even for a mid-morning Friday. Luckily there was no wait for a table. The space is quaint in the front but don't let that... More

My friend recommended that we eat dinner here. She warned me that the tables are quite close together, and it can get quite busy, so possibly might be less private (we had a lot of catching up to do) but thankfully on the day it was very quiet (torrential rain probably helped with that!!) therefor, the restaurant had a very...

We live practically next door to this place and we love it! Great staff, great coffee, great lunch, fab evening menu at really good prices and really enjoyable cookery classes. Every time we pass the staff give us a wave and our little girl is always looking to go in for as she calls it a 'Pawpuchino'
