We were lucky to grab a table in this busy spot a few weekends ago. Loved the atmosphere and the tempting selection while you que to order. A really fun spot...slightly off the beaten track but worth a visit...

The food was very nice, staff was pleasant and welcoming & the place is well decorated and cool. The only reason that we marked as a 4 is due to the way that you need to order on queue and find a seat, no order food service from table, which makes the place a bit confusing. Once you order and...

We headed here before visiting Teelings whiskey, it's only around the corner. The coffee is 3fe, very good start! I got eggs and smoked ham. What a tasty dish. It was €7.50, a little steep for portion size but v tasty. The decor and clientele are v mixed and hip. Staff were v pleasant and I'll be back for sure

I'd never thought of Tahini on my porridge until I walked through the Fumbally doors. Mind blowing. And the Falafel plate, dear god try the falafel plate. Serious spot. Quirky and quaint, loved it.

Started going to Fumbally recently as I was attending a night course nearby. Great relaxed atmosphere, super friendly staff, healthy & tasty menu, great coffee, lovely cakes...I could go on. Went to their weekly evening meal last night and thoroughly enjoyed it.

This is one of this places you can have your coffee sited surrounded by strangers in the same table and their dogs sniffing your feet. I found this very disappointing , there were three dogs around me while I was finishing my eggs, I don't think this is hygienic and I don't think I'll come back. I found the place... More

Healthy dishes prepared with healthy ingredients - that's what you will get in the Fumbally. Choose from the salad bar, add some organic bread and sit in a vibrant environment. Very tasty!

A great place for casual lunch/brunch. The food is interesting, fresh and delicious. The ingredients and the care with which they are put together is the key to the successful food. Fumbally eggs are delicious for breakfast and the salads are stand out for lunch. Gluten free chocolate cake is also a winner!

I travel around a lot for work, and genuinely cannot think of coming across too many cafes like this *in the world*. It could be found in the trendiest part of the trendiest city, and fit in well with all the alternates of the world. Here it is in Dublin - lucky folk. The food is really quite amazing -... More
