Fab place for a nice homemade breakfast! Very reasonably priced! Never usually order scrambled eggs as rarely are they done right and normally get a pile of rubber, but my sister had been before and assured me ' they can do scrambled eggs!' ... she wasn't wrong!! Fab brekkie of scrambled eggs on crusty toasted bread with lovely bacon and... More

Once you find this little gem you will always return. Great location but easy to miss as it's on an inside balcony upstairs. Gorgeous food all day and lovely coffee too all served with old world charm on beautiful china. Gets very busy and you will regularly have to wait but you won't be sorry!

I had tea and salmon sandwich with salad. Walked into the vintage place for shopping and small antique treasures. Got a seat on the balcony and had a great view while taking a break to warm up in the cold morning. Impressive building with glass windows bring daylight to the whole area.

Powerscourt Town House is a delightful building and has been wonderfully restored. It is lovely to sit in the Pepper Pot on the balcony and see all that is happening around the internal courtyard of the old house. Sandwiches and pots of tea are great here, they also have great cakes.

We took the Fab Food Trail tour and the guide recommended The Pepper Pot for lunch, so we checked it out. The place is very popular, but we managed to get a table overlooking the shopping center. Great for people-watching. Staff were very friendly. The sandwich was enormous - very good. The soup of the day - a spicy tomato-pepper... More

I have ate here with friends, my mother and by boyfriend several times and it never disappoints.. Equally as good every time, both for food and service.. Very reliable! Will keep going back:)

The Pepper Pot is a real hidden gem. I came here for a quick lunch and enjoyed the food I ordered. I had a tuna focaccia with a small mixed salad. The bread was so thick that it would be enough for two sandwiches, the tuna very good, the salad was dressed discreetly with oil and vinegar. The personnel was... More

My yogurt and granola with berry compote was out of this world. My husband said his smoked salmon with bagel was one of the best he's had. It was a little tricky finding this place and the wait staff wasn't particularly friendly but the food was wonderful.
