  • Such a surprise find! It’s amazing, service,food, atmosphere. The overnight oats and berries, crepes, breakfast sandwich; all absolutely delicious and beautiful! Coffee was smooth and perfect. Do not miss this new treasure in Dublin.

  • Do yourself a favor and visit Jay Kays. The service is unmatched. The food is out of this world. And they have the best juices in town. Will be back any time I’m in town.

  • Such a lovely spot for lunch, have been three times and every time have had a 10/10 experience. Food was always fresh and delicious, staff were so welcoming and the coffee was amazing. Highly recommend to everyone to pop in if you’re ever in the area!
