You have more variety upstairs if you are prepared to climb two stairs, toilets also on the third level which is difficult if you have knee problems. Salads and hot lunches and all day breakfast downstairs, the food is moderate apart from the awful chips....More

My family of 5 had a terrific breakfast at GBC. Cafeteria style, the food was good and the place is clean. Sit in the front window and get a front row seat watching Irish life! Enjoy.

Enjoyed a roasted turkey, stuffing and cranberry sandwich on the FRESHEST warm ciabatta bread, with salad. Menu offers great selection of sandwiches, meals and cafe drinks. Arrive before noon to beat the lunch crowd.

Stepped in for a cuppa tea and stayed for lunch. Seafood chowder was top notch and full of fresh seafood. Brown bread was very good. Service was quick and the staff was very accommodating and friendly. Great place to people watch from the window seats.
