Went here to catch a late lunch and a coffee with a friend. We ended up at the second location on Cow Street - just as cute and quaint as the Dame Street location. Neither of us had been before. Might have been the best cappuccino I've had to date - it was simply delicious. Also had the roast turkey... More

My friends and I found this place a the beginning of our trip and went back several more times during the week! It's an extremely charming, quaint place to go and enjoy a traditional Irish scone, or other yummy pastries! Was also a good place to go for a hot cup of tea or coffee when the weather got too...

Great food and cakes, everything we tasted was delicious. Nice interior, quirky and kitchen from wall decorations to teacups. Just a bit too crowded, you sit rather close to other guests but that comes with popularity and quality.

Great brekkie. Loads of variety and all unique combinations with tomato relish to die for. They sell it is jars too. Then there's the cakes and tarts. Just wow.

Came in for breakfast on a Sunday morning. Was delightful and reasonably priced. A great little cafe with lots of character. Going back for breakfast again.

This is a must stop when we visit Dublin. Always warm and welcoming. Very busy little breakfast shop with delicious scones, pastries and a few breakfast entrees. My family loves it as did the friends I introduced this little gem to.

Thank Gerzeygurl
