Service is always very quick and the food is tasty and quick. Seating can be tight. The place is convenient and efficient. Don't expect too much and you won't be disappointed!

I love to come here on a sunday for a fry up. Very reasonable prices and a lovely atmosphere to enjoy your brunch with a good book or a paper and a bit of quality me time. The coffee is really good here too. It's a nice place to meet friends and catch up or go solo. Just order at... More

This cafe was on the corner of the road leading to our hotel so we sampled its wares soon after arriving in Dublin. We went for the English breakfast toasted sandwich and a cup of coffee, both of which were hot and served quickly. This saw us through most of the day ahead, and if our hotel had not included...

Food was very nice. Staff are very pleasant. Filled us for the morning ahead. Staff dealt with us fast and efficiently. No request was too much. Pleasant atmosphere and I would come back again.

My partner and I came here for an Irish breakfast and we're massively disappointed . . . The food was all pre cooked and then reheated in a microwave and tasted horrible. The sausages and pudding was rubbery and the bacon was like leather. Don't offer hot food if you're not going to cook it fresh! After we had finished... More

What a great little bright spot for our Sunday morning coffee and a light breakfast. The name is a little confusing, being American I expected... a candy shop! There was local artwork and friendly service. We had a simple breakfast of eggs, toast, bacon and of course, potatoes. We were able to get coffee, bottled waters and scones to go... More

Breakfast is ok, could do with a little more on the plate to be honest. Not enough butter for the toast. Served quickly...but stop using the microwave! It dries the food up, but it was still nice ☺ The chap behind the counter is very pleasant and welcoming.
