I became aware of 3FE about a year ago, by the time I finally got to visit them in Dublin they had become synonymous for me of what a great caffe should look like and what customer service culture should be like, much to do...More

Called in for lunch on a Saturday in September and had the Green Eggs and Ham. The green eggs were likely poached in vinegar which is ok but the whole dish was reeking in vinegar and the pork shoulder was tasteless, apart from the vinegar....More

I hate when a barista says to me that will ONLY be 7 euro....for the two Americano I ordered. A rip off for a cold acidic cup of coffee. Some attitude on these guys too.... Aaaagh!
