I was so excited for this restaurant from all the reviews I'd read and the fact that they had several vegetarian options on the menu. But when we got there the tiny restaurant was so crowded and busy there was nowhere to sit and no...toilets (which was an issue for my elderly parents). They directed us to walk around the block and down to the mall for public toilets. We weren't sure where to go, so we ended up at the top of the mall where we had to pay for the bathroom. Turns out it didn't matter that it took us forever to get to and from the bathrooms because it took them forever fill our order. I actually started to think they forgot about us so I inquired and got stink eye from customers that told me I would need to wait- like I was being overly impatient while we stood awkwardly in front of other customers' tables for well over half an hour! When we finally got our food to go, we had to wander around until we found somewhere else to sit and eat our food. Not great. We did end up going onto Trinity's campus and eating at picnic benches set out in front of the library. By that time the food itself was soggy and not really that flavorful. You do get a lot of it, but I'd rather it was less expensive and smaller portions. I was really disappointed and would not go here again.More

We dropped in here for morning coffee, the cafe is very small so you might have to stand in line to get a spot. Overall, it was pricy at €8 each for a coffee and muffin. I wouldn't be rushing back to pay these prices,...even taking the lovely coffee art into account. The few tables around us were all having breakfast, and while the quality of the food looked great, I noticed the staff were under a lot of pressure to get it out on time. The guy who served us was very pleasant.More

If you are looking for a traditional Irish breakfast, don't hesitate to come here. The place is very small and there may be a queue, but it's worth it. Not only was the breakfast excellent, but what struck us was the kindness, friendliness and smiles...of all the staff. Keep it up! the Italian girls 🍀🤙🏼More

I was bemused re this place and it's long wait to get a seat. Actually was waiting in line for a while and had others go ahead of me, why? Because you need to get a ticket number first inside - just a tip. Re...food and service, well once you have a seat it's fine and friendly. The vegan breakfast being 80% sweet potato is not my best choice but is what it is. The coffee art is impressive if that's your thing. So I respect how popular this place is, just not really for meMore

Excellent as usual. Friendly staff, fresh coffee, good quality food at very reasonable prices. It’s a very cosy place with 3 tables indoors and 3 or 4 outdoors weather permitting.

By far the best breakfast I’ve ever had! So flavourful and hearty! The chocolate designs on the drinks were amazing, such wonderful talent. Food came out quick and all of the staff are kind and friendly. If you are in Dublin you must come here....Perfect breakfast to end our lovely trip away. Thank you.More

Get in line early because this breakfast is totally worth it!! Great full Irish and huge breakfast plates. The coffee was warm and delicious and the baked goods looked amazing. So glad we waited in line for a table!

Small place means that you surely will have to wait to be served, but the wait is worth it. The coffee is delicious (and served in an original way) and the food is really good (and comes in pretty big portions).

Insane BIG Breakfast when you go for the Big one. So tasty! Insane! Great coffee! Great service. You will probably have to wait outside to have a table but it's worth it!

Both the food and the coffee were fantastic. Prices very much affordable and definitely worth for the quality. And the Chinese guy serving was amazingly friendly and helpful, he even told us about the 3 types of coffee (flavors, history etc.) from the espresso. He...is a real gentleman. Important to know: only 2 or 3 tables of 2 inside and some more of 4 on the side walk outside. BUT our recommendation (if the weather allows) is to take your food/drink "to go" and enjoy it in the park less than 50 meters away: quieter, less traffic (people), fresh air and much nicer landscape to view.More

Hi Teresa. Pearse Street Dart station is 1.1 km walk to Beanhive. Tara Street Dart station is 1.2 km to Beanhive. So similar distances. From Tara Street you could walk up Grafton Street, which is one of the premier... More
