We had the butternut squash soup (excellent) with treacle bread (very good) and a huge Ceasar salad (Good). The burnt wood stout was a nice menu option and the proseco was excellent. The service was fast, friendly, and efficient.

Friendly staff, super food. The metro special has a bit of everything. Also a nice place to have a coffee outside as it is sheltered.

Nice spot off to the side of the busy city centre. Quick and friendly service with a nice little selection that covers all the basis! 4 stars only because i had the breakfast butty and the bacon was very dry so was obviously pre cooked......More

I went here yesterday for brunch with my Partner. Such a lovely quirky little café with affordable prices and very tasty and well made food. The staff were extremely attentive and friendly at all times. I will definitely be back.

Our first meal in Dublin. The staff was great, asked about our trip and gave suggestions for sightseeing. The Irish Stew and a glass of wine was just what we needed before getting a good night's sleep. Breakfast looked good as well. Indoor and outdoor...More

My third time being here and each time it has steadily gotten worse. We had a pre theatre meal which took 45 minutes to be served. It was a matinee so lunch menu was sought. Chicken was inedible, portion tiny, service appalling, never going back!
