Used to live in Dublin so have had my fair share of breakfasts in the city. This was the best I'd had in many a year. The keys? Very tasty sausage, soda bread, black & white puddings - all essentials to a proper Irish breakfast....More

Pleasant little cafe in the midst of Temple Bar with fresh pastries and good coffee. A good place to go in the mornings and spend a little time to sort out and plan the rest of your day in Dublin.

Great service, good food and well presented cafe. Only issue was not a lot of difference between large and medium breakfasts to justify the price. Also a bit pricey for what we both got probably cheaper breakfasts if you shop around.

We only went for breakfast but we went twice and would have gone again and again if the holiday had allowed. Lovely, friendly service but not in your face. Excellent sausages, excellent bacon and egg butties. Everything - excellent!
