Lolly & Cooks have a great breakfast, lunch and supper menu which changes quite often but I find that the food is always tasty and filling. It's open pretty late on weekdays from Mon-Thurs and has a really nice seating area upstairs and outside, so I've come here for coffee and to study on a few occasions in the evening.... More

Loved this place since Anthony Bourdain features it in a Layover episode. The rolls are really that good! Tried a chai tea for the first time and it's a perfectly balanced cup of tea and spices. The tiny cupcakes. Beware!!

Myself and two coworkers stopped by for a quick lunch. 30 minutes later we were still waiting on our soup and pre-made sandwiches. The food was mediocre at best and no excuse or apology was given for the delay.

It's a cute little coffee shop that make a great cappuccino. The menu isn't very big but whatever you choose it's going to be good. They do great combo meals

It was right next to the Merrion hotel where we stayed so we popped in for coffee. It was good. I didn't try the pastry but it looked amazing and was gluten free!

This is a cute coffee shop and cupcake place near Merrion Square. Packed with locals. Small eat in area, but mostly looks like takeaway.

Very efficient, friendly service and consistently great coffee. Their savoury muffins and sausage rolls are wicked.
