I've visited a few branches of Avoca and none fail to please! Stopped in alone early morning to do some work before a business meeting. I enjoyed an excellent almond croissant and cappuccino, service was fab too. I'll be back next time for sure.

A cold dark winter's afternoon, so where for a nice lunch. Avoca on Suffolk St is where we find ourselves, escaping the rain. Busy but we were greeted quickly and seated in a waiting area for a couple of minutes. Our waiter was efficient, attentive and had a great sense of humour too. Great choice of menu, making it more...

Had a really enjoyable breakfast here recently with our young children. Expensive but lovely as a nice treat! Our children loved the amazing pancakes and fruit washed down with smoothies and we had an amazing full Irish, the scrabled eggs are divine!!! And probably seriously unhealthly!! Excellent coffee and freshly squeezed orange juice. Overall a lovely visit, great start to... More

Have been going to Avoca for years now, usually dining in the restaurant upstairs, which has very good food but is fairly expensive for casual food. However I do not mind paying extra if food is of good quality & staff pleasant. On occasion, if I was in a hurry, I would go downstairs to the self service cafe. There... More

The menu is not huge, but every element is planned carefully and it offers variety for every taste. The coffee is really good (I suggest to try their Moccha) and their cakes are over the moon! My current favorites are the carrot cake and the chocolate fudge cake (If you ordered food as well, I recommend sharing dessert since the... More

Originally Irish, I now live and work in Cape Town, South Africa, and it's somewhat traditional for my wife and I to have breakfast at Avoca whenever we visit Dublin. I really can't fault any of the experiences we've had there for the last 4 or 5 years. The food and service has consistently been excellent. Quite possibly the best... More

Went here for lunch and the food was way over priced. It was grand but I have had far better for a lot less. Would not visit again.

Love this place! If I can manage to make it out of bed before they stop serving breakfast at 11.30 I'll be there without fail! Lunch options are great too - plenty to choose from and both a hearty and healthy mix. Their city centre cafe would be in my top 5 for Ireland. Staff are super friendly - same... More
