This is a very enjoyable spot for a coffee or a light meal. Located in Donnybrook village it is still off the beaten track. The owner is a character and really adds to the place. The food has a Moroccan twist to it. They also serve pizza. Definitely worth a try.

It's a quirky little joint between a garage and a car wash. Nice coffee. Friendly staff and tasty scones. The guy running this joint could give lessons to the posher joints in Donnybrook about service. If you are in the neighbourhood it is a good place to try. If you want to hide for a morning it might be the... More

I frequently go here for coffee and scones and love it's ambience and welcoming attitude. The only probl is that we forget to go home because we chat on and on in a comfortable cafe.

This is a hidden cafe in Donnybrook. The owner bakes the most amazing scones and cooks lovely Moroccan cuisine. The service is personal and friendly and the coffee is good too. 😀☕️

The pot of tea was also well presented in a teapot-come-cup arrangement. Wi-fi and newspapers available and bottles of water on each table. All just pleasantly surprising given the location. Small menu, bijou space - my little... More

Given it's location (behind a garage and next to a car wash facility and opposite the wall of a tennis club), you'd expect Café Diem to be a greasy spoon sort of place. Nothing of the sort! Nicely decorated and quite unpretentious, this place serves good coffee and tasty snacks. Newspapers are available to read if you are so inclined... More
