I went there with a friend for a dinner and a chat. After 1 minute the waitress was already there for our drinks, and after three she was there again for the food. Some places don't seem to understand that there IS such thing as too fast service, especially if you expect to wind down after a week's work with a friend and the place is almost empty. We ordered hamburger and lasagna and were both great. The coleslaw that came with the burger was particularly good, and my friend asked if he could have some. He didn't expect to have it for free of course, but for some reason that I didn't get, they wouldn't serve it on its own. When I finished my burger, my plate was removed while I was still chewing, and then we moved to the desserts. We both went for a carrot cake, and my friend asked the waiter if we could have it warm. I'm still waiting for the glass of water that I asked for. To sum up: the food is great and more than worth the price, but if you go there, make sure you are in a hurry (because they will be, even if you are the only customer at that moment) and you don't order anything that is not on the menu.

Lovely lunch time spot - fabulous food and very decent portion sizes. Staff were superbly friendly and helpful. Have heard wonderful things about the gluten free peanut tart, was only devastated I didn't have room to try it ;-)

One of my favourite Dublin cafés; relaxed atmosphere, great location, really good food, especially the red pepper soup and the bacon and Brie sandwiches. Yum!

Without question my favourite coffee shop in Dublin. It stay open late and the goat's cheese salad is amazing.

Arrived at 12.55 when breakfast finishes at 1 - just asked the waitress if there was any way we could still get breakfast, and was VERY curtly told (without eye contact) that it was finished. We ordered our sandwiches, plus a tea and coffee, and she didn't speak the entire time other than that. Squashed into the corner, the food arrived 10 minutes later and was put onto the table with a 'HERE' from the waitress. The sandwiches were not very good at all - the chicken-melt on 'focaccia' was on anything BUT focaccia. Tea was weak and cheap tasting, coffee only OK. Milk 'jug' had no spout, resulting in spillage. The service was the clincher - I've never dealt with such rude staff in my life! For the first time ever in Dublin, I didn't leave a tip. Will not be going back again.

yea, no. me and two friends went here last week and were disappointed. first off, the tried seating 3 of us at a 2 top. i would rather you say you have no room, than try squishing us together to make a buck they had a burger & pint deal for a tenner but when my friend wanted to add bacon and brie to his burger (obviously willing to pay for it) he was told no, the deal was ONLY with a plain or cheddar burger. well maybe they should put that note under the types of burgers instead of BURGER & A PINT 10EURO!. tell us which burger next time. the burgers came after about 25 mins... and looked like something you get at McDs. I would actually rather have eaten a whopper w/ cheese from BK than this cos at least it would then be half the price,a fraction of the time and taste twice as good. I got up to ask the waiter for a side of chips. he says " no we dont do them. and theyre not healthy. you shouldnt be eating them." well, one little fella just got on my bad side, and that's not good for anyone. he told us earlier he was new there but i think what he meant was that he was new to common manners. i told him he shouldnt give input like that to customers and he actually followed me to my table stating his case until i had to tell him to go away. we asked for the bill and were told we had to go to the till to get it. when we went up the girl asked us what table number we were at. uhhhh i have no idea cos guess what, i dont work here. we paid and got out. wont go back.

I used to come in here alot for lunch breaks, quick coffee and a soup and back to work; place would always be busy so didn't pay too much attention to the surroundings. Tonight popped in before my evening class for something to eat before hand. Coffee: Ordered regular size (I hate large coffee that come out in huge bowls) good coffee in a good sized cup - just right for €1.90. Dinner: Ordered 1 lasagne and 1 burger. No lasagne so just changed it to two burgers. The menu was a bit boring, lots of sandwiches, salads looked good but I was looking for something a bit more filling, 4 choices of burger (basically just either adding more cheese / bacon) and lasagne - not too much choice if you want a hot option. Arrived in good time; just burger and salad no chips (not offered on the menu, but it is generally burger and chips!) Salad was just leaves, two slices of tomato and 3 slices of cucumber. Burger was good - nothing special. It was only €7.40 but it was like something you would slap up yourself at home in a few minutes. Overall: I can see where the Cafe is going with it's cute fairy lights, paintings for sale - but it just doesn't come together. The tables are much too close together, chairs are very uncomfortable, the aircon blowing at the seats was freezing. Beside one table was the sweeping brush and I could see behind the counter the bin was full and rubbish was pouring all over the ground. Menus were tatty and very frayed. Chef was wearing jeans! I'm a firm believer that it is the little things that pull a place together, maybe some good strong management and a little freshing up and this place could really be something.

The food is nice, the prices are reasonable, but the place is a bit small and cramped perhaps. It's good for a quick lunch, nothing remarkable but somewhere I'd go back to again.

Had a quick lunch here at the weekend.. It seems very quiet inside, but busy outside, there are a lot of similar places in the same area. Ordered the chicken tandoori sandwich, without mayo but it arrived with. Had to send it back, never like when that happens but it was quickly rectified. The sandwich was much too large for me, to be honest, a lot of chicken and lettuce and not much else. Weak tea and leaky teapots, also not impressed with that. It's ok, if you aren't fussy and don't mind a quick slap up sambo but it wasn't my favourite in the area.

Called in here for a quick coffee and bite to eat with a friend. We sat out the back given it was a warm evening and he smokes. The menu is uninspired, covering all the usual bagel and sandwich reliables, so I opted for a burger while he had the Caesar salad with added bacon. My burger was a sorry affair: cheap meat in a cheap bun with admittedly nice relish and tomatoes, but drowned out by boring shredded iceburg lettuce. The ‘side salad’ was exactly the same shredded iceberg lettuce and tomatoes in my burger, only on the side. A poor effort worthy of a chippy van outside a nightclub at 3am on a Saturday night. I would have been better of at McDonald’s. The Caesar salad was thankfully generous, but had the disturbing aftertaste of carbolic soap. The added streaky bacon was served whole and somewhat stale, and it was all served on, you guessed it, shredded iceberg lettuce. They must have got the stuff on bulk discount. A drizzling of some flavourless white sauce topped off what actually, technically, wasn’t a Caesar salad at all. The coffee was fine in fairness, and the service smiling, but they forgot about us out the back. There’s nothing going for this place at all really, a rip-off for the poor quality you receive. Note that most of the previous reviews give their good marks because of the potential to sit outside on a nice day. By all means do so and have a coffee, but don’t bother your money with anything that comes from the kitchen, there are far too many better cafés nearby.

Visited Busyfeet yesterday afternoon. It was a warm afternoon and the cafe was really, really warm so both my friend and I were practically asleep by the end of our time there. I maybe wouldn't recommend it on a warm day after yesterday, although the tables outside looked lovely. The service was good as usual. The prices are quite high in my opinion - paid €2.40 for a very small glass of orange juice. I like Busyfeet in general... It can sometimes get very noisy and crowded but if you catch it at the right time it's a relaxing experience! I'd recommend it overall!

Visited Busyfeet for the first time in several months yesterday to grab a quick bite while in town. As usual always good, the service is prompt and friendly, food arrives quickly and they don't rush you to finish. I had a goat's cheese, spinach rocket & coriander salad with added bacon. Quite tasty, one down side is the bacon was pretty much full rashers rather than chopped, but its a minor nit. All in all great value for money.
