I find it hard to believe that ruby duck has such good reviews. I went here at the weekend with my cousin, prompted by the very healthy reviews here. Overall I was very disappointed. The menu was drab with nothing much to excite the pallet and the food which was served was excessively greasy. My "panini" was in fact a small bap and the "rocket" which I very much desired was in fact iceburg lettuce. Really basic flaws - if you don't have it, don't list it.

The decor is very nice but I wouldn't recommend this cafe to anyone - there is so much better out there! A bit of investment in the menu's diversity really wouldn't go astray. The place also offered no sweet option for breakfast and there was no sign of desserts/scones which disappoints in any cafe.

Dear Irish galavanter,

You win some you loose some........your review is strange in that i wonder were you actually in Ruby Duck at all??? In reply to it. We grill our bacon and sausage and have been compliamented on this fact by many, We do not serve panini, we serve as stated on our menu Baked Ciabiatta. As to no sweet option ....piled high on our display cabinet are the following homemade scones, freshly baked croissants, danish pastries, 2 tray bakes..plus a further choice from selection of of 5 cakes, were you really here???????.
Best of luck and keep glavanting!!!!!!!

The hot breakfast offered at this cafe this morning was excellent. Farm fresh eggs, homemade breads, fresh vegetables and meats, along with the perfect cup of coffee were served by friendly women who obviously are talented culinary chefs. We purchased scones to take along for our afternoon train to Cork and as we sit here in our compartment, taking in the scenery, we are thoroughly enjoying the best scones we have tasted from any of the cities we have visited all over the world! We only wish we came across this gem earlier in our trip to Dublin.

Good food (especially the cakes), friendly staff, nice atmosphere. Convenient location too just off Temple Bar.
