“Beautiful, Stylish, Elegant and Relaxing”
Reviewed 28 November 2013

Having visited Cross Cafe for the third time recently, I was once again massively impressed with the overall experience. The building is beautiful - I am completely ignorant when it comes to all matters of Art, but the gallery just behind the cafe is a seriously impressive space with a wonderful feeling of calm and relaxation. The staff are superb and the coffee top notch. I really admire the vision of people who open cafes of this type and really I wonder how somebody could spend their money in a Starbucks or Insomnia when we have places of the quality of Cross.

“Lovely cafe”
Reviewed 14 August 2013

The perfect place to stop for a spot of refreshments whilst mooching around Dublin's Cultural Quarter (or when visiting the Cross Gallery!) Wonderful cups of coffee and hot chocolate and although I didn't try them, the sandwiches looked delicious too. Friendly and warm service all round.

Just a note to say The Cross Cafe on Francis Street is real Gem. The Coffee and Food quality is excellent and The overall atmosphere is excellent. Staff very friendly ...... I have gone back and back. Well done to all involved ..... A little bit of Paris in Dublin 8 - Dublin's Cultural Quarter
