We happened upon this place while looking for another cafe and decided to try this instead. I had the most perfect breakfast here with a delicious flat white. Highly recommend.

This hidden gem has definitely the best sweet/desserts in Dublin. Food and drinks are also carefully designed and presented. If you are in a rush, just pop in and get a take away. Definitely worth the visit.

Great little breakfast nook ran by very friendly people. They had a nice menu and decent prices. Service was a touch spotty but the food was good. Portions were small too but we enjoyed the atmosphere and it made for a good breakfast!
