    Food is always good but the service wasn’t great on this visit. Took a good 10 minutes after arriving at the front to even be acknowledged by a member of staff, it was then another long wait for the order to be taken and another long wait to ask for our bill. We also asked for tap water and was provided with one glass of water between the 3 of us, didn’t realise that we had to specify a jug of water! I’ll be back as the food is good and easy but in the hope they hire and train more staff!

    Very quick service considering how big and busy it is. We both got the lamb shawarma which was incredible. Such a great combination of flavours and textures. The potatoes were great too.

    Had to ask for our order to be taken after over half an hour of waiting - we were given menus while waiting for our table so we knew what we wanted before eventually being seated. Food also took very long to come and was very overpriced for what it was. Service was poor - also had to ask for the bill as we had to go and could not afford to wait any longer. We had a booking but still had to wait to be seated. On the booking I listed that it was a birthday and we were celebrating but didn’t matter. Unfortunately would not recommend at all

    Very good food + ambiance. Only issue was we could not get coffee at the same time as the food so it was getting cold when food arrived

    Brother Hubbard - NorthResponded on 17 May 2023Hi & thanks so much for visiting. We are delighted you enjoyed our food & ambiance! We do prepare drinks as they are ordered as would be the case with most/all cafes. If someone would prefer to wait for their drink with their food, we would always recommend waiting to order the drink once the food has arrived (as in most cafes, as you might imagine, it would be extremely difficult to co-ordinate the activities of the chefs and baristas, most especially at busy times). Thanks again for visiting.

    Nice place and staff but food wasn’t really the best - maybe just not a great choice - please check your French toast - it’s inedible at least to our taste.

    Food too fancy for the place it is, nice simple brunch would be better, didn't know what i was looking at/eating. I had the ‘Turkish delight’ french toast. Service and ambience 10/10 tho

    Brother Hubbard - NorthResponded on 17 May 2023We are sorry our offering didn't suit your tastes, though we do describe our dishes accurately on the menu. We've been delighted to win a number of awards over the years (including Best Breakfast in Ireland) and grow our busy business, which hopefully reflects the quality and distinctiveness of what we offer. Try as we might, it is difficult to produce a menu to suit all tastes (we do have classic breakfast dishes alongside our other items if you'd like to visit again to try something simpler).

    They changed the menu and the new menu has nothing to eat. Feed serving took 55 minutes. The tables did not have salt or pepper at all.

    Good food and nice design but terrible service! I ordered a cocktail and it was so strong I could not drink it. The manager came and was not willing to replace it. I asked if they can send it back so that the bartender would fix it (add some more juice, sugar, whatever, to make it sweeter) they refused and only brought me some sparkling water to add myself. It tasted terrible and I ended up paying ¢12 for a cocktail I didn't drink. Then the coffee came with Oat milk (even though I didn't ask for that...) and I had to wait for hours to get a new one.... We were a party of 6, all eating and drinking cocktails and I think giving a customer a good feeling and allowing them to enjoy a drink with their friends should be more important than saving a few cents on a glass of mimosa (which is what I asked for)...

    Brother Hubbard - NorthResponded on 17 May 2023We are very sorry that you were disappointed. The drink you ordered not a Mimosa but rather was a Breakfast Martini (a very different (stronger) drink). We're unable to swap drinks unless they were prepared incorrectly and, respectfully, alcoholic drinks are a very expensive item to serve. For hygiene reasons we do not return drinks to the bar - hence we did offer to bring juice and sparkling water. We hope the above helps with an understanding of the situation and many thanks for visiting.

    Great food, massive space to accommodate any sized party, the staff did a great job considering they weren't enough for the amount of people they had to wait on. But all in all a good experience. (my one comment would be to keep the bathroom cleaner during the day, we got there at 12h and it was already filthy from use)
