We found this place by accident, but wished we had found it sooner. Quirky, welcoming with great home baking and very generous portions. Find it and enjoy it.

This charming small place is very popular. Breakfast selections are varied everyone should find something. Coffee is very good (important!), friendly service. We had breakfast on both mornings we stayed in the area. Highly recommend!

We ate breakfast here twice! The food was lovely and staff very friendly and helpful. They have a huge selection of cakes that all looked delicious. I will definitely visit again when we are back in Dublin.

First port of call the morning after we arrived. Now I know why we had x 3 recommendations to go there. Don't go past the lemon meringue tart - the best ever. And the perfect cup of hot earl gray tea to ward off the cold outside. So small, quaint and traditional and I just loved it!

I thought about trying to come back before 11:45 for second breakfast but ended up settling on adding a blueberry scone to my... More

I popped in one morning before tackling the Xmas shopping and had a delicious scone and coffee. Staff were so friendly , charming and welcoming. I would recommend this little oasis of calm to anyone who needs a place to relax or chat with a close friend.
