Always enjoy a Sunday morning trip to Mugs for a relaxing coffee, muffin and a read of the papers. Nice local with great artwork on the walls - photos of the surrounding area.

We had breakfast here a couple of times! Cool little cafe with one across the road so waitresses often going from one to the other. Best seat is the window to watch the world go by. Very good coffee, food and service! My favourite place...More

A funky little coffee shop with friendly staff. The coffee is to die for and they also have a great selection of fine teas. Sandwiches, soup, scones and cakes also available. Best seat is the table in the window, where you can watch the world...More

Mugs has the best coffee in Dublin. A very special brew, carefully found by the owner. The queues every day at 7:30 are testiment to this. They also do lovely teas and sandwiches. Have a great seating area, both in the cafe and across the...More

Great place, formerly the "wrong end of town". Great food, any time of day. Top innovative products from Irish producers like blue beards cold pressed juices. Chris the owner and his sidekick Craig make quite the duo.

Great coffee shop with seated area both on ground and 1st floor, great to have in the village versus those big chains......

This is my 'go-to' coffee shop when I'm walking in Dalkey - Chris and Craig use Fairtrade coffee and their prices reflect this. It's a busy shop that may now see competition with the pub just reopened next door, but if you like good strong...More
