We were out with our Grandson yesterday and ended up in Dalkey. It was 3.30pm and we had nothing since breakfast and I remember visiting Idlewilde a few years ago so decided we would go there. The minute we we walked in we were greeted...More

It was 3.50 euro for a good sized pot of tea for two, and then we split a chocolate cookie. They also served food but we didn't have any at this visit. Multiple pastries available. Very cute little place, they have wifi, and prices were...More

My daughter and I had breakfast there today. I had forgotten how big their breakfast is. Sourdough toast, poached eggs, bacon and sausages....mmmm. Their secret lies in the attention to details: relish served with their breakfast is the best I have tried, the jam they...More

We had early morning coffee here and fresh pastries. The patio was really sunny and good buzz for the time of day. Its off the main road in Dalkey but worth a visit.

Just had a Greek salad here. The portion would have barely fed a sparrow. They had no dressing or olive oil. Cost: €9.50. Waste of money and no feedback from the waitress on our comment. Avoid.

Delicious food, I had a breakfast of salmon and scrambled egg, washed down with cappuccino. The place is nice, the staff friendly and the yummy. Prices aren't cheap but not expensive either. I would happily go back there again.

The decoration is beautiful and the menu attractive. But what you got on the plate is another story. I know, this cafe is in a small village, and they probably don't face the same rush than in a city like Dublin, but the service was...More

Dalkey has a reputation as a foodie haven - this place should surely stand out as one of the best. We opted for simple fare - coffee and scones. Excellent!!! But judging by the plates going by and the smiles on others faces, the brunch...More
