Had Dinner before going to Abbey theatre, very tasty vegetarian options, I had a salad for a change and was light and tasty. Delicious chocolate cake dessert, yummy. Very reasonably priced. Mum had pasta chicken dish which she really enjoyed as she is a very plain eater. Will be returning.

My meal was fantastic, the best thing I have eaten in Ireland. Has a variety of options, for all types of eaters - vegetarian, vegan, meat eaters, gluten-free and even a section for kids and lots of options for picky eaters too. Did not find it overly expensive, fair in comparison to most North American restaurants, although a little cheaper.... More

Myself and my partner walked into Dublin on our recent visit and wanted to grab some breakfast before getting into all the attractions we had planned to visit. We stumbled across this little Cafe and found the service and food to be very nice indeed and not as expensive as some places can be in Dublin. Would recommend
