Vinny the owner chef is seriously talented. His food is amazing. From the outside you think its going to be a little cafe with cafe food. But the food here would give any restaurant a run for its money. As all the dishes are cooked fresh it can take a little longer than expected. But a million percent worth the... More

Went here lunchtime on a Saturday with my boyfriend. There was one other couple in there so it was far from busy. I ordered a toasted ciabatta and a fruit smoothie. My boyfriend's food and coffee came and went. I was waiting half an hour for my ciabatta and then received it after my boyfriend had finished his meal. Never... More

I was on the hunt for a really good soup one cold day... After much searching, I stumbled upon this place tucked inside of a mini indoor/market. I asked what the soup of the day was and if it was homemade, the chef/owner (I believe) was so proud of his soup I had to try it, the soup was a... More

I was wandering around this quaint little shopping area when I saw Urban Picnic and couldn't resist checking out this café. They have a variety homemade soups, sandwiches, wraps, salads to choose from and they make their bread fresh daily. I had the Chicken Tikka on ciabatta...one of the best sandwiches I've ever had! Usually at a restaurant like this... More

Came in on spec and was richly rewarded with the best green Thai chicken curry I've tasted yet in my 4 decades on this planet. The service was both professional and welcoming. Background music soothing. Highly recommend a visit to one and all to try out their fantastic menu. I'll definitely be returning now that I've discovered this little gem... More

Lovely food in a small restaurant in Georges Street Arcade, also frequented by locals. Loved the green chicken curry and soup of the day (vegetable) with homemade bread. They may be short on staff and we had a little wait, but it really wasn't a big deal, and they easily made up for it with their friendly manner and service.... More

The husband and I have been enjoying occasional little trips into town and popping into different types of eatery for lunch. Yesterday we were on a mission and not having had much success on the south side we decided to venture over to the north side. Before crossing the Liffey we thought we'd brace ourselves with a spot of lunch.... More

Between my husband and I we had the soup of the day and a plate of risotto with grilled chicken (add-on). The soup was yummy and was served with some homemade bread. The homemade bread portions weren't that great to be honest but my husband was happy enough with it. My risotto.. Well that dish itself was a total miss.... More
