the full irish breakfast was good value and included tea/coffee and fresh orange juice. Interesting old elegant building and good friendly service.

Good for a coffee stop. Able to get a table without a wait although it can be busy. Service was quick. Lovely atmosphere and good place to watch the city going by. Very fair prices compared to some chain coffee shops

This coffee shop has it all! Irish charm, Irish character, excellence in service and the best coffee in Europe hands down!

Thanks for the latte art! The lovely rustic feel! The cold brew served as both a science and art! Made my trip to Dublin! A must for any coffee lover

This is a fantastic restaurant with lots of old world charm, quirky art work plus a warm friendly atmosphere. One could imagine the great Irish literary figures eating here while debating their art. I breakfasted here every day of my stay in Dublin. The menu is varied from full Irish to continental with a range of excellent teas and coffee available. The service is speedy and friendly. I recommend this restaurant as a must visit.

We were a bit jet lagged after our 12 hour journey to Ireland and could not get into our hotel room. We were in need of some relaxation and food. Well, this is what we got here. The setting had the hubbub of a city but yet in a relaxing way. The beef sandwich, coffee and dessert were very good. The service left a little to be desired and they were the least friendly people we encountered on our entire visit to Ireland and Scotland.
We came here one late evening just for coffee and dessert. The waiter was very friendly and the desert was very good. This is somewhere you should include on your visit to Dublin as it is an institution.
