Twist Café is a place I used to visit many years ago before I moved abroad. I remember it having the best Chicken Casear wraps and a delicious hot chocolate for those winter sugar cravings or full-bodied coffee for the mid-morning slump. Needless to say, when I returned to Ireland, I couldn't wait to relive one of my favourite eateries.... More

I had lunch here after reading so many excellent reviews but I cannot say it lived up to expectations. The menu was extensive with lots of choice. It was served efficiently and was nice but I was expecting amazing.

I was a twist fan for the 4 years I lived in Maynooth. From a comforting Irish Breakfast to any amount of wonderful lunch and dinner options. I always loves their variety of explosive vibrant sauces with almost anything. Fresh and healthy options to boot. Even just for a nice coffee, it's a good spot for a sip and a... More

Good veg breakfast . The service was fast and food was fresh. Toilet was clean. Waiters attentive. I will come back. They don't have soya milk though and no more gluten free bread.

As a confirmed irish fry fan, I was sceptical about the concept of a veggie breakfast. But doctor's orders meant i had to try it. Initially, the veggie breakfasts I tried were healthy but boring, and very uninspiring to the taste buds. Until now. The Twist veggie breakfast includes at least 8 different vegetables with a cream cheese dip and... More

The food is decent here but i find myself going to cafe Bon Bon a little further down the street because the constant lack of card machine annoys me.

Great place for breakfast, delicious pancakes and sausages. Good value. Service ok. Orange juice described as freshly squeezed but was just cheap stuff, bit annoying. Good overall.
