We went for lunch and it was a lovely sunny day and we were able to sit outside and enjoy the sunshine. Two of us had fish chowder with sourdough bread which was good - a good mix of veg and fish, and creamy. The third member of our group had the soup of the day with mushroom topped with cheese which she enjoyed.
Lovely friendly staff.

Had a lovely lunch. Ands what's good about this place is that they serve breakfast for most of the day. It's a very busy place so you might have to wait a little for a table but its worth it. Will definitely go again

This is a great place to meet and eat. Last time I ate here was Sunday brunch with 6 adults. The atmosphere was lively and family friendly. The service was quick and the food was delicious:Eggs Benedict, fish chowder,salmon salad,vegetarian breakfast, fruit salads, good coffee and tea and my favourite drink--free water. Prices were excellent

A must visit restaurant just 5 mins from the Seapoint Dart station or the 7 Bus stop in Monkstown.

Go there--you wont be disappointed!.

Some weeks ago, I had lunch together with my daughter, her husband and their 7 year old son.
So, in this context, all ages and tastes were catered for accompanied by a warm and friendly service.
The place was buzzing even though it was a Monday and had all the hallmarks of a thriving restaurant that had discovered the winning formula without the slightest trace of smugness.
Four different dishes were chosen and each person was more than satisfied with their choice.
We all said that we will return

I've only eaten breakfast here and it's never disappointed me. Coffee is good- takeaway very cheap. They do a delicious eggs florentine - very generous portion could be for two people. Pancakes are good too. Very kid friendly and happy to give you small portions for kids. Their granola, yogurt and fruit pot is divine also. Freshly squeezed OJ always. The place itself is very relaxed and kind of bohemian feel to it. Staff are friendly and helpful. Great place to relax, eat and read papers or chat with friends .
