Friday 21st July, been for a stroll around Dun Laoghaire Pier, Harbour  and People's Garden (all reviewed separately) and it was was time for a coffee.

We went into this small little coffee shop by the seafront entrance the other way in is through the store Meadows and Byrnes.

It might be a bit dark, dated and tired looking inside by the staff are friendly and the coffee is good, 2 large cappuccinos were €7.10 , €3.55 each.

Stopped by here for a quick coffee after a nice walk on the pier. Outside seating area overlooking the sea is lovely. Service at the till was pleasant and efficient but it ended there.Drinks were a disappointment. Teacup was dirty. Iced Carmel lattte was almost tasteless, poor value for 4.20 and my cappuccino was average. The location and lovely day makes this place very inviting. Need to work a bit harder on the service offering.

Not the best coffee. I had an Americano and I like it black & mean with a bit of a crema on top...this was watery with no crema and no kick!

This is really a Meadows and Byrne with an Insomnia in it, rather than the other way round. The cafe is small but service is good and if it's a nice day there is plenty of room to sit outside close to the sea in lovely Dun Laoghaire. Meadows and Byrne a lovely shop to browse in after a cuppa

Usually seating available, a bit tired but the coffee is consistent. Staff are friendly and the food is usually good if you're looking for more than a coffee
