Such a shame this place is tucked away, as they do the most delicious coffee and a fabulous arrange of fresh, wholesome sandwiches. Lots of vegetarian options, quiches, soup, scones, gluten free cakes and much more. All so fresh looking and tempting, and service was fast and friendly. Eat in or take away. Highly recommended for breakfast, brunch or lunch.... More

Small coffee place near grand canal dock. Mostly you have to be lucky to find room to sit in but well worth it. Scones pastries but especially the coffee is great value. Quite some choice if you fancy bagels and ciabattas as well.

There is always a friendly smile waiting for you in this busy coffee shop. There is a choice of indoor and outdoor seating when you can enjoy looking out over the water and the collection of moored barges.

Enjoyed this small cafe a couple of times on a recent trip to Dublin. Can only attest to the Americano, which was quite good, and the pastries, which were very tempting and equally delicious!

No doubt that this place serves up a consistently very high standard of coffee, a top 2 coffee destination in this part of town and one of the best in Dublin. Yes, it's down to personal taste, but I've yet to find anyone who doesn't rate it highly. Lovely friendly staff, nice location especially on a good day.

Stayed in the building that houses the art of coffee so we did breakfast every day for 3 days and everyone liked their coffee, tea and hot chocolate. Quiche and breads were also good.
