I love the LFC. The food is great and the staff are lovely and friendly. I like going there and the chicken wings are great. BUT... I have gone there several times and every time it is cold. Not the food but I mean the temperature in the place. My feet usually freeze in there with the draft. This is... More

Came for some brunch one afternoon. The food was lovely. Service was quick. Food was a bit cold but can't complain too much as the taste was there. Staff were friendly. Coffee was one of the best coffees I've had in a while. Will be back.

We were warmly welcomed and seated immediately in a busy L.F.C last saturday so would recommend booking ahead to secure a table for saturday evening dinner. They have a custom at dinner time of serving their sourdough bread and some tapenade as you peruse the menu - so tempting and filling! Only one of our party ordered a starter of... More

This was my first visit to the Lovely Food Company despite living very close by. I’d heard good things about the place, and went for a midweek treat to try their three-course early bird menu (€25). Sterters: I had the chicken wings – plump and spicy with a blue cheese dip. These were good, although I’m an absolute hooer for... More

Very nice place with very accommodating staff who were very friendly. However, I was craving a decent bowl of soup and the only option was a basic veg mix drowned in salt. The sandwiches were decent with all agreeing that the chicken and stuffing with cranberry sauce was the best.

My friends and I spent almost every saturday or sunday morning at the lovely food company. We are going out for breakfast/brunch and the dishes are very delicious and I love the coffee as well. I'm a coffee addict so coffee is very important to me and they serve a very nice coffee. The people are very polite and it's... More

I have the "lovely breakfast" which was great, the only thing was that beans were not included. Great coffee too.
