Decided to eat in Brambles because of the food in the Jarvis Centre being of a high quality. We called here around lunch time expecting that the food would be fresh. We ordered four items two sandwiches, sausage roll and coffee cake. The bread for the sandwich tasted like cardboard, the meat like leather both sandwiches were not finished. The... More

Called here recently for a light tea and will not be back. Menu choices were limited and food covered with cling film which is perhaps the norm. I sort of got the feeling we were not welcome although we were over an hour before closing time. The food was just OK but pretty basic. The big shock comes when you... More

The food was ok but I found this place to be a rip off.I don't know how they justify their prices.I won't be returning and even service was very slow.

Stopped here for some lunch which was two mushroom soups and a small chicken salad. Excellent service and tasty food. Would go back for more

This is an easy place to stop for coffee and cake when shopping. Cakes are lovely but I would share because of the huge size! Not tried any savoury but it does look very nice worth a stop.

Brambles have two outlets at Dundrum shopping centre. They have one big fault. They do not cover their cakes at the counter. I called into outside Brambles ester day in Dundrum. I was going to have something with my coffee, but the pastries and cakes are at a low level and children were touching and standing over them. Please please... More

Cafeteria style queuing and ordering at counter but eye wateringly expensive prices. A portion of salmon roulade (laced with raw onion) and salads (also ruined by raw onion) plus an americano was an incredible €16! For that price I'd expect table service rather than counter service. In fairness the coffee was good but didn't make up for the overall poor... More

All prices are a rip off and the food is average,not worth the money at all especially taking into consideration the poor customer service provided by Brambles in Dundrum. One particular female member of staff with glasses served me in an abrupt manner and I also heard her moaning about customers well within earshot of many customers.
