Great place for sweet stuff! I highly recommend the Baileys Coffee! It's right in the heart of the center and you can relax outside while others are jealous of your cake

A must visit on a cold day and you fancy a hot chocolate with a difference and reasonably priced too.

We ate in here, and it was a cosy interior to relax in. My daughter had a milkshake and a panini which she enjoyed, while I tried the Guinness hot chocolate, delicious! Friendly staff, and a nice location near the river Liffey.

We stopped in after a trip to the gaol. We stepped off the bus and had a surprisingly delightful visit. The banana split was delicious, a good pot of tea for two and a generous chain latte and cupcake. Great service!

Whilst walking down the busy street and bus route we fancied a little break, darted into this place and instantly felt relaxed out of the bustle and noise. Great coffees and a large selection of cakes and pastries along with friendly staff made this a great find.

€5 for a lemon and sugar crepe?! Overpriced and flavourless Staff were helpful but I won't be returning!! Also had to wait 10 minutes for my crepe?! Would not like to bring in my kids as it would cost you a fortune I don't generally write poor reviews but only if merited
