Staff spend more time chatting than they do serving and greeting customers. Once was a great spot, service slipping in recent years. Owner is a nice guy, needs to ensure service remains 5*. Breakfast quality not what it was and long waits for your coffee...prior to breakfast even being served.More

It was packed! But I took this as a good sign. We had a while to wait for a table but it was worth it. Service is good plenty of staff to assist. The wait for food wasn’t too long. Recommend the smoothies! The pancakes...looked good we didn’t have one as we all had a breakfast. Highly recommend we all enjoyed our foodMore

We had a good breakfast here and there was plenty of choice on the menu all at fair and affordable prices for central Dublin. Would recommend

I visited this morning for some breakfast on my short solo trip to Dublin. I thought they did an eggs benedict for some reason, but got there and found it was crepes, bagels, full breakfast, etc. However I wasn’t disappointed because I had the lemon...and banana crepe and it hit the spot perfectly. The energy injection smoothie (strawberry, banana, orange juice and honey) was also gorgeous. I’m only here until tomorrow and I’m probably planning to go back for breakfast again as I know it’s so good!! The cakes in the case also looked amazing if you’re wanting some.More

Lovely visit this morning, despite the lengthy queue we were seated within 15 minutes by friendly staff, my first ever savoury gluten free crepes were beautiful and coffees/smoothies were excellent to match

When we arrived we only had an hour before we needed to leave to be at another location for a tour so when we seen a long queue of around 20 people we wasn't sure what to do. We had read reviews that this was...good but didnt want to find another place if the same time finding an alternative venue would be the same time as we were queing so big deicsion. Do we walk further into Dublin or stick with Lemon Jelly ????? We decided to stick with LJ and wait in the queue. It took around 10 maybe 15 minutes to get seated so the wait wasn't that long after all. We asked how long the food would be when we was served and given an approximate time of 20 mins which would have fitted in with our timescale perfectly. The drinks and food arrived at the same time within around 10-15 mins. Food was filling, tasty AF there was plenty enough to keep my pot belly full for a couple of hours. If I ever went back to Dublin this will be the place I have breakfast again and just 10 mins walk from our hotel (jurys inn also)More
