This is one of this places you can have your coffee sited surrounded by strangers in the same table and their dogs sniffing your feet. I found this very disappointing , there were three dogs around me while I was finishing my eggs, I don't think this is hygienic and I don't think I'll come back. I found the place... More

Healthy dishes prepared with healthy ingredients - that's what you will get in the Fumbally. Choose from the salad bar, add some organic bread and sit in a vibrant environment. Very tasty!

A great place for casual lunch/brunch. The food is interesting, fresh and delicious. The ingredients and the care with which they are put together is the key to the successful food. Fumbally eggs are delicious for breakfast and the salads are stand out for lunch. Gluten free chocolate cake is also a winner!

I travel around a lot for work, and genuinely cannot think of coming across too many cafes like this *in the world*. It could be found in the trendiest part of the trendiest city, and fit in well with all the alternates of the world. Here it is in Dublin - lucky folk. The food is really quite amazing -... More

Visited with my partner. I felt like it reminded me of Brunswick St (in Melbourne) in the late 90s. I mean this in a good way. It's quite grungy but very attractive, with tatty old leather couches and an old piano topped with dried flowers, candles and bits and bobs. The coffee is good, the food is really tasty, soulfully...

Went in for breakfast and a coffee, the eggs were pretty good, the coffee was ok and small for the price. Service very perfunctory. Lovely room but there wasn't much to make me linger for another coffee, and I like to linger over a coffee.

The Fumbally is a very inclusive cafe just off Clanbrassil Street. There's a very warm, welcoming atmosphere here, with plenty of room for buggies, and kids are more than welcome here. Dogs are also welcome, so it's perfect to stop in for a really good coffee mid-walk. Their brunch is always a hit, and you'll always find something to tempt... More

Visited The Fumbally for the first time today on a friends recommendation. It's a bit of a trek for me but I'm glad I went. It's was a bit of a queue to get to the till to order but it moved fast. I ordered the salad plate with falafel. I didn't get to see the salads until after I... More

This is one of my favourite restaurants in Dublin (and in the world).The food is always wholesomely delicious, with great choices and a great atmosphere. The only downsides are the location, and the times, which makes it impossible to go as frequently as I would like. Great that they are opening Wednesday evenings now, and would love that this extends... More

Absolutely insane breakfast here. Thankfully we arrived just before everyone else in Dublin did, so we didn't have a line out the door...but others did. I had the egg/ham dish and my friends had the egg/chorizo dish. We grabbed some flapjacks to go, as well as an iced latte with sunflower seed milk and condensed milk. It was insane. Also,... More
