A lovely little cafe where we enjoyed yummy cakes and coffees whilst sitting on a comfy sofa in this lovely little find. It is on the corner next to The Castle Hotel and was a lovely way to recharge our batteries.

My husband and I ate the Commuter Breakfast on our first morning in Dublin before checking into our hotel. The food was delicious at a reasonable price. The staff was welcoming and professional which set the stage for a lovely week in Dublin

The Candy Cafe is situated on a corner and has a functional but cosy design. The menu is typical for lunch. The sandwiches were simply tasty, as you may expect. A decent lunch.
