I am a coffee and cake lover! Found this place by chance, after looking all over Dublin for a nice place where to have an Irish coffee and a cake. Nothing seemed appealing... Located just before Christ Church, there was an A board advertising "coffee and cakes". The place is very busy and you have to wait to be seated... More

Have been here a few times and every time it delivers. Although the last few times i have returned its been a bit of a wait as it is very popular with tourists. The food is amazing but the desserts and cakes are just to die for. Its like high tea on steroids. Service is good and very well run.... More

Went here to catch a late lunch and a coffee with a friend. We ended up at the second location on Cow Street - just as cute and quaint as the Dame Street location. Neither of us had been before. Might have been the best cappuccino I've had to date - it was simply delicious. Also had the roast turkey... More

My friends and I found this place a the beginning of our trip and went back several more times during the week! It's an extremely charming, quaint place to go and enjoy a traditional Irish scone, or other yummy pastries! Was also a good place to go for a hot cup of tea or coffee when the weather got too...

Great food and cakes, everything we tasted was delicious. Nice interior, quirky and kitchen from wall decorations to teacups. Just a bit too crowded, you sit rather close to other guests but that comes with popularity and quality.

Thank Hanna K
