Stopped in after dropping off the rental car and it was actually the first ACTUAL espresso and not Nespresso! It was fantastic. The atmosphere is lovely as well. Good little lunch menu too!

So nice to find a cafe serving really nice freshly cooked food. We called in for breakfast one morning and were made to feel very welcome and at home. Lovely scrambled eggs and bacon with toast, tea and freshly squeezed orange juice all served with a smile and a kind word or two. A great start to the day.

Go here for lunch quite often, the menu is limited but what they do, they do very well. If you have nothing else, have a coffee, it is amazing and one of the best price cups in the area.

I come here quite often during the week, and love their sandwiches and soups (served with really nice fresh Guinness type bread), but I do get a bit bored of seeing the same sambo's over and over. They only have a choice of 4 (usually tuna melt, falafel, chicken and chorizo) and as for salad is just one type of... More

All the ingredients are fresh in this cute little cafe. Loved the avocado and tomato with my eggs and bacon. Communal tables if you come alone. Good coffee. Great find!

If you like some scrambled eggs for breakfast - these are definitely the very best in Dublin. The coffee is also superb. If you've modest expectations in terms of range on offer - then you won't be disappointed. This place is really excellent.
