In the biting cold of December, this was a lovely oasis of warmth with a fantastic hot chocolate and mince pie. Will visit again.

The tables were all covered in waste / papers / coffee stains, floor was grubby. Very loud. We only got take away and that was time enough in there for me

Popped in here for a spicy Christams coffee break with my wife whilst shopping in Dublin. Big mugs, lovely cake & good service. Nice & warm too with wi fi. Pop in & take a weight of your feet here for sure.
