We go here on a very regular basis. I love the outside seating area. Best relish in town. I love their smoked bacon potato cakes with poached eggs. In the afternoon I like their carrot cake or Victoria sponge. A great spot.

This is where we had our first meal in Ireland; and it didn't disappoint! The farm fresh eggs, roasted tomato, bacon, and sausage were just incredible. I can't say enough good things.

Quaint with a small but delicious lunch menu. Must leave room for dessert. Or forego lunch altogether and just have dessert! They also have takeaway if you're in a hurry.

Had to stop into this cute shop for a treat. Excellent service. Had coffee and shared cheesecake brownie & apple muffin. The side of cream is a nice touch!

The dessert we ordered were all delicious. I think the Irish make the best tea as well. It's always pleasantly hot. My 11 year old son, had the brownies, unfortunately it had cherry puree in it, which he just ate around. The apple tart was...More

We got 10 in but at different tables and it was a bit cramped. 15 is a stretch.

A friendly restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and delicious baked goods throughout the day. We have two locations in Dublin City Centre across from Dublin Castle, two minutes apart from each other. Drop in for a homemade scone with raspberry jam and cream, or a seasonal savoury tart.
