This nice and cosy cafe in the heart of monkstown has a very good selection of pastry,coffee and teas. Their Irish breakfast come in a good portion and tasty too. I recommend the scones. Helpful and polite staff and a good size place inside and outside.

I work near here and hadn’t been for a while until recently. Had a simple but delicious soup and sandwich meal. (Actually a few times in recent weeks). The soups are always wholesome and tasty and their sandwiches are fresh and huge. Staff are really nice and friendly and I will be going back much more often

Have a good brisk walk to Monkstown and reward your self with a tea or coffee in Cafe du Journal. There is a selection of cakes/pastries and although it is cramped, you can usually find a seat.

Always a pleasure to pop in after a walk on the pier. A place where you get a welcome every time.
The maitre d' should give lessons to other establishments on looking after the clientele and employing good staff.
Suits all comers it seems. Family friendly. Safe spot organised for the bikes is very welcome. Sunday papers always popular.
Recommended to restore your faith in the Dublin cafe scene.

Full marks for atmosphere, menu selection and friendly staff.
Quality, portion size and presentation for brunch need to be better. The Pancakes,bacon with maple syrup were "pancake Tuesday" style and not breakfast pancakes as I expected. They were fine and gave me a laugh.The Eggs on sourdough were basic - two eggs on a small slide of sourdough - was disappointing and with some imagination could be presented much better.
Will call again but might just have a coffee.
