This is a warning for anyone who is intolerant to gluten or is a coeliac. This cafe does not offer gluten free options. I am a coeliac and today when I asked for an omelette (something which can be easily made gluten free-use a clean...frying pan!), I was shut down immediately by the waitress. She said the kitchen is too small to cater for gluten free. In my opinion this cafe needs to be able to offer something to people who need gluten free options in this day and age and since it is a Dublin City centre cafe. Just a warning to those who need it before they visit. Otherwise, the staff were very friendly.More

Spent a lovely evening here, had a really great cheese/cold meat board with lovely wine. Delicious blue cheese, Camembert, manchego plus very tasty salamis. Also bread was great. Staff are super friendly. Will definitely be going back.

This is a lovely coffee shop in the heart of Dublin’s Temple Bar District.Its a cafe I frequently visit when walking home from cinema. Always a lovely variety of very tasty snacks, coffees, ice cream etc. Friendly service, nice atmosphere, and always a good place...to sit and relax over a pleasant snack.More

I was hungry after a day of work and was walking by this cafe. I’d never really noticed it before but the delicious smell of crepes lured me in. I ordered a ham and cheese crepe and it was cheap and tasty. The decor is...cute and the atmosphere is lovely. I love the photographs around the cafe. The waitress who took my order was really sound. They were also playing a Lily Allen album which deserves 5 stars itself. I’ll definitely be back.More

This cafe specialises in waffles and crepes, both savory and sweet. All of which looked delicious. We had paninis and porridge. They were all homemade and delicious. The staff were really friendly and the prices were very affordable, especially for the Temple Bar area in...Dublin.More

I love this cafe so much! The man who ran the cafe made the nicest food in Dublin. I had a panini with sausage, egg and cheese which was outstanding! My mum had a goat's cheese crepe (a massive hit!), my auntie had a vegetable...soup (she told the chef it was incredible!) and my brother had a sausage roll! The man who ran the cafe also gave us a sample of a coconut soup, which was the nicest soup I think I have ever tasted! Overall, a fantastic cafe with lots to choose from!More

Stumbled upon this place looking for a good cup of coffee on our last day in town. They offer a nice menu of crepes and sandwiches. This is a quiet spot in the morning since most of Temple Bar is still sleeping off the night...before. The coffee was good but the staff was a little slow preparing it. I wouldn't mind going back for actual breakfastif in town again.More
