It's a cute little coffee shop that make a great cappuccino. The menu isn't very big but whatever you choose it's going to be good. They do great combo meals

It was right next to the Merrion hotel where we stayed so we popped in for coffee. It was good. I didn't try the pastry but it looked amazing and was gluten free!

This is a cute coffee shop and cupcake place near Merrion Square. Packed with locals. Small eat in area, but mostly looks like takeaway.

Very efficient, friendly service and consistently great coffee. Their savoury muffins and sausage rolls are wicked.

During our Monday to Thursday stay in Dublin we decided to find a cafe or restaurant nearby the hotel rather than paying for an expensive breakfast at the Clayton Hotel. We came across Lolly and Cooks nearby and it's one of the best breakfasts I've ever had. Me, my father and my grandmother had a Bacon Sandwich and my mother... More

While enjoying a nice family break to watch Barcelona v Celtic at the Aviva , we decided to have a taste of local artisan produce in the weekly market in Herbert park , instead of having breakfast in our hotel.

We stopped for coffee on our way to our guest house and were amazed at the extent of the choices of baked goods. The quality was not out done by the menu ! We stopped here twice in 3 days. Staff was a wealth of information.

We had breakfast there twice as we were staying at the Marker hotel just around the corner. It has fresh , yummy food that the kids loved. The focaccias, scrambled eggs, sausage rolls and selection of cakes were all excellent. The staff were very friendly and I'd strongly recommend it .
