We were staying in the Hilton Hotel next door and had coffee and scones here almost daily. Plus we had a punch card so by the time we left we earned a free coffee. We felt like locals as they know us and greeted us each day, nice huh

This is a nice place for lunch after a visit to Kilmainham Gaol. Good variety of well-made sandwiches, indoor and outdoor seating, and friendly service.

I always enjoy coming to this cafe. The coffee is amazing and the food is always delicious. The menu caters for a wide variety of preferences, with plenty of GF and LF options. The interior is always spotless and the little touches such as plenty of books and magazines as well as free wifi are most welcoming.
The staff are always friendly and attentive. I would definitely recommend this cafe when visiting the area.

This place should be called the Lemontree due to the sour & bitter staff member who served us! She was impatient and rude - would have preferred to be doing something else! No soup - no offer of something else - just none left! Caesar salad returned as 'chicken' was rubber processed stuff, freezing cold & slimey - not a word as to why it was not eaten - just cleared away! 7.50 down the drain! An uneaten croissant not cooked in the middle also cleared away and when i commented on that, the response was 'oh'! And the noise is something else - no soft furnishings to absorb the banging of coffee machines, trays, etc. Not a pleasant experience ATAL! Shame that our tourists visiting Kilmainham Jail & Royal Hosp Kilmainham have to be subjected to this blonde girls seriously bad attitude and unwelcoming manner!

Hello,
Firstly I'd like to apologise that the service you received at LimeTree Cafe was not up to standard. We aim to provide a friendly service and it's unacceptable that your experience fell below this. The matter will be dealt with internally.

Our soup is free from additives and preservatives and we aim to provide it as fresh as possible each day. This means that it's a difficult balancing act between having enough soup available and avoiding wastage. Unfortunately on the day you stopped by, the soup had run out.

Both our chicken salad and sandwich is made from whole chicken breast and we don't use processed chicken. While we would prefer to serve this at room temperature, Environmental Health regulations mean that we must store it at 4C or less.

As with all the bread we use, the croissants are freshly made and delivered daily. We haven't previously had issues with part-cooked croissants but will raise it with the bakery.

Again my apologies that you didn't enjoy your visit. We hope that your next visit will be more pleasurable.

Regards,
Gerardette & Frank

We visited the little cafe after touring the gaol on 10/06 - tasty range of cakes, salads and sandwiches and good range of coffees, teas & cold drinks, only failing would be that the cafe was a bit pricey.
