There's a lot I like about the M&S Café. Firstly, there's a nice view on Grafton St, with the terrace an option in the summer. Also, free wifi means you can get a table and do a bit of work, and some tables are at a nice remove from others so you feel you have space (there are areas which... More

Used to have a lovely restaurant where you could get table service and order from menu this was changed in last visit where it's now more a cafe/ deli style and you purchase prepackaged sandwiches or basics like pies which are here's up. Still decent as it's M+S,but not as nice as it once was. Nice view from rooftop balcony... More

We got hot. Chocolate and cake. The chocolate was boiling ... No need for this.. and the lemon drizzle cake dry. The people I am with think it was very expensive for such a small slice of cake. Warm nice clean cafe, we visited the ground level cafe. There is a bigger cafe on the top floor.

What used to be a special spot up high amongst the roof tops in Dublin city centre with cool furniture, waiter service and great food has turned into something truly horrible. Self service, cheap furniture and TERRIBLE food it has become a cattle market. Even the manageress admitted that the inedible scrambled egg on toast was imported as 'on piece'... More

Nice bright aspect on glorious cold day in downtown Dublin. Clients sitting out on terrace in brilliant sunshine. Food good & simple - delivery a bit haphazard! Good attitude from staff made it a pleasant interlude in the city!

Nestled in the store, the Cafe is well positioned as a stopping point for the weary shopper who needs a quick cup of coffee with dessert. The limited menu is pretty good although not outstanding The center of activity of M&S is its store with the restaurant as an after thought. Moderate prices with a cordial serviing staff.
