Poppies is now my favourite cafe in Dun Laoghaire, you should try the beef and guinness pie it's amazing and there coffee is nice, strong and locally brewed. But also the staff are so friendly and welcoming they made me feel right at home. Would recommend this to anyone who thinks they know a good cafe.

Welcomed in from the rain by cheery faces. Service was impeccable and the manager and Co worker were very attentive. Keith and Emily wished us a good day. Would go back.

Have recently moved into Dub Laoghaire, and found this place on the way to Peoples Park. It is a really nice, friendly, comfortable place, with really nice food and coffee/tea. Nice homemade style food which is good quality. Will go back

I had breakfast here as the places I used to visit on my trips are not open on Sundays. It was a real surprise. Breakfast was really good. All of the ingredients were tasty and perfectly cooked. The cafe doubles as a take away with very good coffee, tempting pies and cakes. It has the feel of a local cafe... More

Spent the afternoon in Dun Laoghaire and on the way to The People Park we found Poppies Country Cooking. It's a cute with plenty of seating, friendly staff and a good choice of items to eat. Their sourdough bread is the best I've ever had, even in the US. You will enjoy and it's very comfortable. We will be back.... More

Visited this weekend, not a great experience. Kids had what looked like steamed rashers with dry toast (no butter given) coz no pancakes available. A full and half Irish breakfast not much better, same pale steamed rashers, deep fried cheap tasting grey greasy sausages with tea and juice. €35 I'll be spending elsewhere in future. Staff pleasant enough but a... More
