My partner and I were in Dun Laoire and needed some lunch. She had been in this cafe before and highly recommended it. It's a decent home cooked meal and great value for money.

This small bistro continues to offer a great range of foods from breakfast through lunch and snacks. The quality of food is reliably good and the staff very helpful and pleasant. Sometimes, eateries like this start off well but over time the food and service goes down hill. Gourmet Café shows it is possible to retain a good standard over... More

good food, value for money. very accommidating to any requests. however one waitress on the till was a little rude, think she was blonde with an accent so maybe it was just her nature as some cultures are more to the point.

I sent them back thinking there was a mistake only to be returned the same eggs just cooked through completely. Waitress told me she doesn't know what... More

It seemed to be doing a brisk business so I decided to have lunch there. I am very glad I did. I was greeted right away and... More
