This is easily the best brunch spot in Blackrock. You may bed to wait a little but stick it out. Staff are super friendly and helpful. Menu options are great wide and varied with some great modern twists on classics and some of their own.

I was looking for a light meal, but arriving at 5:15 the less than friendly attendant (the owner maybe?) said they were not serving any food anymore, only coffee and cakes. I got a scone and banana bread with a... More
