Really good spot. They do a nice coffee but it is a pity that the pastries and cakes are not baked on site. Staff are great and will facilitate any requests for how you might like things served.

When you want somewhere quick and hassle free to go with grandparents and small children it's not always easy. Dinkins was very handy. I like the way it served a great range of sandwiches/soup AND scones and buns - they don't always come together. Lovely food catering for all needs across 3 generations, nice staff who looked after us and... More

Homely atmosphere and good homemade cooking. Not too expensive. Would recommend for breakfast. Right in the centre of town you'll not be bored watching the world go by from this sweet cafe.

This is THE place to go in central Monaghan if you want to enjoy a good cup of coffee or tea, with delicious cakes, tarts, pies and pastries -- the best of south Ulster baking. Highly recommended. The Cafe also serves very good lunches upstairs and is extremely comfortable. The staff are excellent.
