I stopped here for breakfast multiple times while in Dublin because their service is quick and their scones are to die for. Absolutely amazing. They do charge different amounts for dine in VS. take out so take that into account when you order. Perfect for...More

We happened across the bakery when looking for a breakfast spot and it was fabulous. We ordered a selection of croissants/sandwiches/cakes - they then toasted what we wanted to and brought them to us with amazing coffee and juice. We enjoyed it so much that...More

I had an americano with a sort of chocolate mousse dome, it was delicious! (it really reminded me of the pastries we can find in the continent). A bit of expensive, but totally worth it :)

Coming from Australia, it was comforting to find a cafe with warm friendly staff and coffee and croissants to match. And and a newspaper 👏👏👏👏 I am going back.

Denimi77, could you please contact me at Il Valentino as I would like to understand better the issues you highlight, which is all quite disturbing and should be clarified. Thank you. Owen

Nice little bakery in the quay. Very busy - cost 13€ for two pastries and two lattes. Not much seating as it is a very small cafe. Nice and tasty but unsure if it is worth the money.

Went to Il Valentino's for the first time tonight. I had a lovely pastry (apple crumble tea cake) and the scrummiest hot chocolate for the coldest night of the year so far. We had a lovely time and the staff are really friendly especially Miglioni...More
