Ordering here is a bit of an ordeal (you've to queue, 2 different menus and, some stuff is ordered at the deli and some stuff is ordered at the till) so if it's busy it can take awhile. But once you get your food, it is always lovely! One of the only restaurants open early on a Sunday. Very affordable... More

We asked her if she was still open. Yes she was (it was 5.30pm and we noticed later that they close at 6pm). We had various drinks (teas &... More

After attending a wedding in Monaghan, myself and my partner looked for coffee in the town the following afternoon. We came across Dinkins. Very welcoming appearance from the outside and well set up on the inside. We were provided quick service - staff were efficient, not overly friendly but not unwelcoming either. Food was great - toasted sandwich with trimmings,... More

Stop by for a nice cup of tea and good bakery items. The staff is lovely and the lunch items are clean, basic and tasty. Dinkin's is clearly the place that locals go for lunch.

We ate at Dinkin's mid-afternoon. The service was very good, and the club sandwiches were delicious. You order at the counter, and the food is served at your table.
