“Excellent Independent Coffee Shop”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

An awesome place to sit down, and have a sandwich or a muffin and some really good coffee with a friend or a business colleague.

Staff are friendly, service is fast, and the place has a light and breezy atmosphere, right across from the Kilmainham Gaol.

“Soup before the prison”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

If you need to get your spirits up before visiting the Kilmainham Gaol oppsite this cafe, try the good, nourishing Irish soup and wedges of thick bread. The cafe prides itself on its green credentials and has a regular local clientele who go there for the wholesome food, to meet their friends and read the newspapers. Ian

“Breath of fresh air long needed in Kilmainham”
Reviewed October 6, 2012 via mobile

I was a long term resident of Kilmainham and returned recently and stumbled upon this cafe. Great idea as nothing else like it in the area unless you physically go into Imma. Great location, lovely decor & food. Well done to the owners and long may it continue.

“Awesome food...”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

We went for lunch after the Kilmainham Jail tour. It was Like a breath of fresh air after such a somber place. The food was as light and fresh as the name suggests. It was definately a standout place for me having just spent a week in Ireland.
