Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My favorite place for coffee in Dublin. Comfortable, with delicious coffee and excellent breads and pastries. Pleasant service and excellent price.

Today I was in a rush looking for a quick sambo. Came across cora knows best. Very nice clean cafe. Limited menu and Im not sure if cakes and bread are homemade as described. However I really enjoyed the Latino ciabatta and I would eat...here again no problem. If there was a slightly bigger choice and more freshly made menu I'd give another star.More

I've tried a few coffee shops around the area and this is the cosiest and friendliest of them all. Not a huge choice but excellent and the staff are warm and friendly. If your looking for coffee and sandwich then there's no better place to...go. Try it once and I assure you you will want to come back.More

Don't know about others, but I am what people would call a habitual early riser. And I really need my coffee in the morning. Don't get me wrong, it's not only the taste that I need, it's the whole package: the sound of the beans...grinding, the smell filling the air around me, and, finally, the incredible sensation that only a real espresso would send throughout your body. When I travel, a nice coffee shop close to the place I stay is the first thing I look for, even before I leave my home for the airport. A nice coffee shop that opens very early in the morning. A local owned coffee shop, preferably, where, besides the coffee, I get to feel some of the rythm of the real life. This time in Dublin I found the perfect spot for my early morning ritual, so much so that next time when I'll be there I will choose my accomodation in the same neighbourhood. Because, believe me, Cora knows best! Once you've had your coffe there, the next morning she'll know exactly what you like, no need to say anymore. It's a little cosy, warm place, with excellent coffee and a simple and delicious food offer, and every bit of the experience it's about the human touch. If you're looking for more than the impersonal coffee-to-go experience, this is the place. I will come back, that's for sure.More

Simple menu, cosy and very friendly. Highly recommended and it’s right beside temple street hospital. The menu is small, only 4 sandwiches or 5 toasties but it’s all freshly made and delish.

Popped in for a coffee and treat for my son after a trip to Temple St. Couldn’t have been looked after better, my son was crying when we arrived and the guy was so kind to him, hot chocolate and loads of chat. Great place!

This place was located very close to our hotel, and we passed by just by coincidence. I must say that it was a really good find! Their coffee and Danish pastries is definitely worthy of all the praise I can give. It’s a great place...to stop by for a quick breakfast! The staff is really friendly too.More

Such a friendly, warm and cozy place to have breakfast. Myself and my 2 children went after a visit to Temple Street. My daughter loved its coziness. We had coffee, 2 drinks and 3 danish pasteries . All came to just over €11! I couldn’t...believe how cheap it was , I even asked the guy to double check the price. We can’t wait to go backMore
