My friends and I spent almost every saturday or sunday morning at the lovely food company. We are going out for breakfast/brunch and the dishes are very delicious and I love the coffee as well. I'm a coffee addict so coffee is very important to me and they serve a very nice coffee. The people are very polite and it's... More

I have the "lovely breakfast" which was great, the only thing was that beans were not included. Great coffee too.

Been coming to the LFC for past 3 years had always found food good and service was excellent. But the standards have been dropping ever since they opened a second restaurant in drumcondra. Some of the experienced staff are no longer in Terenure and there replacements are poorly trained. It would also appear that they have less staff working too.... More

Great place for brunch when it's not too busy...crazy on weekends. Good coffee and freshly cooked eggs...but they have replaced their own homemade relish with Ballymaloe (which should be removed from every menu as the catering recipe is yeuch). Friendly staff too.

Fantastic food, the salted caramel slice is to die for. Very busy on weekend lunch times, but service remains good.

Just popped in for a cappuccino and decided on a gluten free salted caramel slice.. Normally the gluten free selection in cafes is good but this was delicious - will definitely be back!

Always like this spot. Friendly, attentive service and food is consistently good. Went again last night and was not disappointed with a fab burger while my husband was heartily satisfied with his fish and chips. Our only criticism is that the menu should be changed more often.

Myself,my husband and daughters come here regularly. It is very hard to find a restaurant that is perfect across all boards. The food is delicious, there is always the right amount of people in the restaurant and the staff are the friendliest and most helpful. Everything tastes so good from the bread with butter/pesto to the prawn linguine to the... More

We shared the early bird. Croquettes for one and chicken supreme for the other. Croquettes soft, delicious and full of flavour and sauce perfect balance to the dish. Chicken supreme was a spice coated moist breast of chicken, cos cous ( made with coriander, tumeric, shallots and some other ingredients - spicy and full of flavour ), guacamole and julienne...
