Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Popped in on a horrible stormy lunchtime in November, the rain was lashing down but Dwyers was bustling and full of people. Lunch was delicious - sandwiches on amazing handcut sourdough bread with tasty fillings. I would HIGHLY recommend it for breakfast, brunch or lunch

Went to Dwyers garden cafe Saturday 23/July. Yes it was busy but the service and wait for food was absolutely shocking. We ordered a toasted special that was served on slice pan bread and it was not even toasted it should of been served on...a fancy country white bread which it stated on the menu, I wanted to return it as I was disgusted with it but my husband wouldn’t let me. I got a bagel with cream cheese & bacon it was slopped together nothing else on the plate it was so soggy. Our coffees came more or less straightaway so by the time our food came out our coffee was gone. In total it was €22 which no way was it worth it. Plenty of staff in the kitchen, plenty of serving staff but no one to guide them from what I could see. I certainly wouldn’t be going back there for food. Just so unprofessionally run which it shouldn’t be because it’s a small menu that’s basic. I come from a food background and I would be tearing my hair out if I worked in those conditions on a busy day.More

Excellent place for brunch. Love the set up and convenient location with parking. Food was good except you need to wait a while but that’s ok because you knew is freshly prepared. Service wasn’t the best, hopefully the management can look into this.

Usually go for breakfast which is always excellent but was too late so we chose chowder and a couple of their delicious sandwiches. The chowder was the nicest in years. So flavoursome and a very generous portion with lovely brown bread. BLT was delicious as...was the pulled pork sandwich. No room for desert unfortunately. Service is so good here. Refreshingly so. Well done.More

I have visited this Cafe 4 times recently, and each occasion has been excellent. Food is fresh, generous and delicious. Coffee is hot and fragrant. The orange almond cake and raspberry white chocolate cheesecake, really are destination deserts. Staff are helpful, efficient, and pleasant. Overall...a most pleasant Cafe to visit.More

Met friends for lunch. 4 people before us in queue, all ordering toasted specials and coffee...i ordered soup. I was over twenty minutes waiting for it. While waiting i was observing the kitchen staff. Very disorganized and not efficient, 3 just walking around doing nothing,...one had very long hair tied back loosely, no one in kitchen wearing cap or hairnet, Asked waitress TWICE for coffee, she said she didn't speak English. Another worker was the same. At one stage there were more inside the counter than customers and they still couldn't get things right. Definitely won't be returning. Pity would have been convenient for getting togetherMore
