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.

The most delicious baileys cheesecake on earth. I visited here on a food tour and I will remember it always. One of the most delicious foods ever. I’ll return to Dublin to eat this again. Yum.

My son found this on Google, so we stopped in on our way to DART station. Most of the family had the waffles, which were nicely sized and extremely tasty. I had the granola bowl, which had all fresh ingredients. The mix of flavors made...for a great start in the morning. Breakfast had been a challenge all week, so I wish we had found this gem earlier in the week. Would definitely go again, and highly recommend.More

I organised a small birthday for my son here. Dominika was prompt in replying to my emails. Deco was not over the top, but creative. Cheeseboard excellent quality. Lovely, colourful ice cream sundaes. So cosy, and staff were friendly and well organised. I went other...times for lunch , and food is lovely...crepes , soup, home made. Pumpkin spice coffee or sangria if you want a treat , but also green detox juice. Good WI FI too. Irish - Polish, with staff from all over the world, welcoming to all. Would recommend on your own, with friends or family.More

July 16th Walked in to find a blonde lady behind the till explaining to a customer there was a 20 minute wait as they were busy don’t think the customer had much English so instead of rephrasing it she got rude with her (we should...have see this as a red flag) but we didn’t mind waiting so took a seat. Food was lovely, coffee was lovely but the whole time we were there the blonde lady and a grey haired man (I’m assuming the owners) were horrible to the wait staff. We heard them being belittled and shouted at multiple times during the time it took to eat our waffles and sandwich so wrong in earshot of customers Just don’t understand because they were all polite and attentive obviously trying their best but weren’t allowed use the till as they had to bring orders to the blonde lady who aggressively questioned everything while other customers queued alongside to pay and ordered takeaways just seemed a disorganised way of doing things and if anything slowed service. Also noticed a staff wanted sign on the door 🫤More

It was extremely hot and humid, so I sat outside. Carrot cake was very dry. Tea was good though. And the service was fantastic. Lovely staff. The location is odd because it feels like you'd be away from tours but just sitting outside for a...short amount of time, I think I saw 4 tours go by. But I know it's hard to escape groups of tourists in Dublin.More

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

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
