Sharing the sad news on their social media pages, the café didn’t go into details, merely saying that they will “stop trading”. They did, however, make sure to thank all their loyal patrons for their custom over the years. With a career spanning almost two decades, it’s no wonder that the café built up such a following.


They were especially popular with the busy lunch crowd. Baking all their own breads in-house; there was everything from white, brown, tomato to focaccia and even an experimental loaf that always piqued my interest.

Known for their generous portion sizes and good wholesome food, they’ll certainly be missed.

Another Dublin business closing down and all we can say is; it’s an honest to goodness shame.
