Do not go there. It is expensive with little choice and surly staff. We went there for a coffee at 12 on a Thursday. Most things on the displayed menu were not available. The bacon sandwich was just a bare bun with a couple of rashers ..nothing else... for the princely sum of four euro. Coffee - very thin -... More

The Expresso Bar is cosy and the food superb. Staff are friendly and go out of their way to make you welcome. I love the new grazing menu with smaller portions offered at very reasonable prices. Dishes are delicious and I really love their chicken wings.

If you are staying at the Dylan, or just in the area, this place does outstanding breakfast in a really nice 'sort of upscale diner' atmosphere. It's not 'cheap', but food is really quality and it is FAR cheaper than breakfast at the Dylan. They have lunch/dinner, looks like some nice wines etc. but I only had breakfast there twice.... More
