Popped into Kennedys for breakfast last Saturday. Despite the cafe being very busy we were seated promptly and had our order taken in good time. The atmosphere upstairs is relaxed and cosy. Staff were friendly and despite it being busy we did not have to wait long for our food. The home made granary bread is absolutely delicious. I would... More

I went to Kennedy's yesterday and had a lovely lunch with my friend. I had one of their amazing ciabatta toasted sandwiches with chicken and sundried tomatoes and it was the best I'd ever had. However I still had space for one of their homemade chocolate cakes as I couldn't resist! Lovely cheery staff who were very efficient and pleasant... More

I visited Kennedys Fairview on Sat morningat 11.20 am We waited 10 mins for a menu. We ordered breakfast & coffee. The coffee came straight away but the breakfast took 40 mins. It was well presented but as I started to eat it I found a long black.hair. At this point we left without eating, which was 55 mins after... More

LIES and DEFAMATORY and a report has been made to TRIPADVISOR. Thankfully the tools of modern times - a CCTV supported investigation - expose the lies of this individual: a) You sat down upstairs at 11.16am. You received menus at 11.21am - SIX minutes rather than the TEN minutes you claim. b) The waitress took your order at 11.24. Your... More

Been coming here for years and always enjoyed the coffee & cakes and the sandwiches. Today was no exception. Good service, attentive staff. One of our group was new here & is looking forward to becoming a repeat customer

I was there 2 weeks ago with my husband ordered the soup which was veg . However the waitress arrived to the table with tomato and basis they had no more veg. We would have liked to be asked before it was brought to the table.

Regularly have breakfast/lunch here and it is consistently good. Staff are always friendly and give a warm welcome. It is also very child friendly which makes going for meal enjoyable rather than stressful!

Kennedy's at Fairview has a very friendly stuff, really tasteful and yummy food, one of the two best coffees I had in Dublin. I have been in Dublin for a seven or eight times yet, but Kennedy's is the one place I never forgot (and never will) to visit. Breakfasts here are truly amazing! Keep up the great job you... More

We went here on the recommendation of our AirBnB host - three times! Their weekend specials are amazing (and huge), and normal breakfasts are varied and superb quality. Some of the best bacon I've had at a restaurant. Really friendly staff although it got very busy so we had a 20 minute wait on Sunday, but the waitress told us... More

Great little place around the corner from a friend's house - have eaten here many times and it's always great tasty, well cooked food, served by friendly staff - it's very much a 'local' place - everyone seems to know everyone else there. It's small, particularly downstairs, so pretty intimate, as tables are close together - not a place for... More
