Lovely cosy place! Staff are friendly and quick to serve you. Felt like I was at home having my scrambled eggs on toast.

Visited this weekend, not a great experience. Kids had what looked like steamed rashers with dry toast (no butter given) coz no pancakes available. A full and half Irish breakfast not much better, same pale steamed rashers, deep fried cheap tasting grey greasy sausages with tea and juice. €35 I'll be spending elsewhere in future. Staff pleasant enough but a... More

Dear Elaine, Firstly I want to apologise for the experience you received with your family. I have spoken to the people who were on duty that day and I can assure you this will not happen again. We had two staff members from our Enniskerry shop in that day and things did not go as smoothly as they should have.... More

The food was amazing and served quickly! The best part of the experience for our group this past weekend though was the staff. The manager there was extremely friendly and helpful providing us with multiple local hints about where we should visit in the town and surrounding areas. We definitley plan on returning!

A great little cafe to make any visitor feel at home! The owner talked to me and a group of friends and provided us with great recommendations in Ireland. Everyone was friendly and welcoming!

Nice little café in Dun Laoghaire. Had the chicken tikka salad which was a bit too spicy for my taste but was very nice.

I regularly go to poppies to grab a take away lunch and up until recently had a pleasant experience every time, with one of the girls even remembering my order by heart each time! However since the manager has started working there daily, I have to say it is uncomfortable to watch him criticize his staff at the deli counter... More

Dear Paula, Firstly I would like to thank you for bringing your comments to my attention. As John is vastly experienced I'm really surprised that he would do such a thing as you suggested.

Good food & Coffee great staff, unfortunately the change of management has seen the loss of some of the friendly staff and the once welcoming and friendly atmosphere enjoyed here replaced with one of tension between staff and management apparent on arrival and unpleasant and uncomfortable to be around.

Went with a couple of friends for lunch, and enjoyed the meal immensely. Had a custom sandwich toasted, and it was delicious! You're allowed to get as many toppings as you want for the 6euro price, which was a good deal in my book. Only thing was that my sandwich was spicy, which was unexpected (maybe the chicken was spiced?)... More
