My daughter found this place on the web and we were not disappointed. It is a little hard to find as there is not a big sign in front of the bookstore where it is located on the top floor. Once we got here we were really pleased with the setting, service and food. We were seated at a table that overlooked the street below and thoroughly enjoyed talking and watching the street scene as we ate a great breakfast. We will definitely be back when we return to Ireland (which will be sooner rather than later).

I visit this cute cafe as often as I can. I ate here last thursday with my Mother. I got a chicken pannini and my Mam the lasagne. Lovely food and great value. Luckily we got a window seat and had nice view. Our waitress was amazing, so friendly and helpful , I think her name could have been Ellen. She really adds to the place, all staff very welcoming and warm. Thanks Pennefeather :D

When we went in to this unassuming cafe, above a lovely bookshop, I was surprised to see a sign that they'd won the best Breakfast in Ireland on a radio station competition. . . . It wasn't a lie. Great food AND free top-up of good coffee.
Went back there again later in the week with the rest of the family and all were delighted with what they got.
My wife was delighted with the really good gluten free bread that is made in-house.
Finally, the cakes and buns are to die for.

I go here quite often for lunch and really enjoy it. They have loads of healthy options and service is always very efficient. The staff are lovely to deal with particularly the male member of staff who I assume is the manager / owner
