I used to stop here for coffee and a scone on my way to work. Their coffee is very good- it has a real caffeine hit. Their scones are really excellent too. I tried one of their bagels and I thought was good rather than great. The staff are always busy when I go in.They are friendly.

We stopped in here for a light bite to eat while shopping. Wonderful soup and bagel sandwiches. Hit the spot!

First impressions really matter and this did not go well @Itsa Dundrum. We waited by the sign which advises " please wait to be seated "........ Until staff attend to all the outgoing patrons paying their bills! Food and service average at best, we did plan on having desert and coffee but again waited so long to be served we... More

Frequented ITSA@HarveyNichols with friends and a little one for the first time and was pleasantly surprised. We came in just for a quick lunch and had the club bagel and the chicken again salad...both were very good. Staff was both prompt and very professional/friendly. Would definitely recommend.

First place we saw open for food after arriving in the city so thought we would give it a go. Prices were average, not a lot of choice in the sandwich style bagels for vegetarians so we got peanut butter and jam. Service was okay but no one smiled... Maybe it was too early? Everything we ordered came quickly and... More

I love the Itsa on Exchequer street, it's a nice little place for a quick bagel and coffee. Don't bother with the Dundrum branch, near Harvey Nichols. Staff were nice, but the food was pretty non descript. The Cesar Chicken bagel was cold, never toasted or warmed up, and was really bland (like chewing on a piece of cardboard). My... More

Itsa... gets my vote every time. The one in The High Lane Dublin City Gallery is my fav. Friendly staff, great food, and they don't mind writers working away there all afternoon.

We dropped into itsa@TheHughLane today for a quick coffee after a very enjoyable visit to the gallery. It was such a mistake! We were left sitting at a dirty table (which was never cleaned) until the male staff member deigned to take our order. He also took 3 other orders at the same time- they had also been left waiting...

Avoid at all costs. I have been a few times in the last year and I can assure you its getting worse and worse. I won't ever be back. Disgraceful management avoiding to aknowledge the customers when entering by the door. Hopeless staff truly believing they are busy and it was half full (or half empty as you wish). The... More
