If you are in Dublin and don't visit The Earl for breakfast it is truly tragic! They have the best menu and quality of food for any appetite. And reasonably priced as well. A must for your visit!

A cafe that hasn't changed (in a bad way) since 1970. The ceiling tiles are falling apart, the interior is grubby and the service is average at best. We ordered two cooked breakfasts and were sent to pay by a chap behind the 'heated' counter. Our breakfasts were then warmed up in the microwave behind the counter. The coffee was... More

Staff are extremely friendly and pleasant. Food is old school but hearty and filling. Their bakery items look lovely as does their bread.

Years ago I had breakfast here and it was reasonably priced and tasty. However times have changed, and not for the better. I fancied a carvery, so when I seen it advertised, I called in. Although they promote it, they don't say how much it is, and I should have left then, as this is a bad sign. Service is... More

This unassuming little place is really amazing. We accidentally found it when looking for a Starbucks which located across from them. Having been to Starbucks gazillion times before, we decided to try out The Earl Bakery. They serve homemade Irish breakfast which you could pick anything you want in your plate. The food is good,but the service is even better.... More

We came upon this bakery when we were looking for a place to have lunch. Even though it is very centrally located, we felt like we were in a local bakery in a small village. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food (soup and sandwich) was good and looked and tasted home made. Value for money. I certainly... More
