I think this is a lovely place to go for a nice, reasonably priced meal.
I would not consider it a place for haute cuisine but it is pleasant and comfortable.
I think the breakfast is particularly good and much cheaper than a hotel breakfast so if you are staying around the area it is worth considering.

Ok food and decent prices. Very popular place. Lays on top of a store so you need to go into the store and upstairs. Go only if you are out of places to go and tired of pub food

Excellent Sunday morning breakfast in a bright cafe overlooking trinity green. Live jazz, free wifi and a champagne (prosecco) breakfast for €9.95 Superb value and excellent food quality. Staff couldn't do enough to help and so efficient yet friendly and relaxed. Lovely to browse the shop too. I went with 2 families and all ages and appetites were satisfied inc vegetarian. I will definitely be going back.

This self service is operating for almost as long as I can remember. It must be there since the early 80s and has managed to maintain its high standards throughout the years. I often lunch here and particularly like the fine range of salads. The staff are always most helpful. If you can get a window seat the view is lovely and makes up for the rather industrial fitout of the dining room.
The drawback to this popular facility is that its gets very very busy in the tourist season as it is beside a double whammey - Trinity College (it has a new name now?) and a rake of tourist bussses parked nearby. So I only visit nowadays in Winter time when I really enjoy the food, which after all is why we go into a restautant!

Fantastic choice for breakfast including healthy options or a fry up, all served up by friendly staff who could not have been more helpful. Cakes are yummy too. Lovely decor and venue, would highly recommend a visit if you are around that area.

Don't park in the Setanta car park behind though, by far the most expensive one in the city.
