Last two visits to the restaurant have been far from satisfactory in terms of customer service. Treated like dirt by one employee today, 17th May 2013, and on my last visit, a similar experience. Any business should treat its customers, its lifeblood, with courtesy and...More

A fantastic freshly cooked breakfast with good strong coffee. Probably the best value in town and even better if you can get a window seat overlooking trinity college.

I love this store. It a great place to buy quality items as gifts, if you need a wedding gift for a foreign wedding you can mail it and purchase tax free. There is a nice cafe restaurant upstairs too. Well worth a visit.
