We were staying in Gardiner Row and found this little gem of a cafe when making our way to O'Connell Street. Lovely breakfasts, we visited more than once! Good value for money and a great way to start your day in Dublin!

Its a popular eatery that provides good value for money. We had a fine breakfast, comprising the full and breakfast sandwich. Very tasty, accompanied by cappuccino and regular coffee. A relaxing stop-off.

We went there for an early morning breakfast and that may have explained why the service wasn't very good. They didn't give us everything that we ordered and we were the only customers in the place. BUT the food was very good.More
