Breakfast in Hook & Ladder is out of this world thanks to Chef Magda. Always made to perfection and goes above and beyond to make sure it is exactly as you order. Chef Magda is the reason I keep going back to Hook & Ladder

I was only back today and didn't see any sign indicating gluten-free, but that they will try to cater for special diets. You might phone them to be sure

The idea behind cafehome is to showcase a number of various store concepts under the one brand, with each individual concept retaining its own individual ethos and style.The first of these concepts is Hook & Ladder, where we’ve created a unique atmosphere with expertly trained staff, showcasing a broad range of Irish artisan foods, plus a range of furniture and accessories. One truly unique aspect to Hook & Ladder is that all the café fittings – from the cutlery & crockery, to the seats you sit on – are available for purchase.
