We had the platter for a starter and it was incredible. The tables were a little cramped though.

My second time to eat in was to catch up with a pal over lunch...We both went for the same pulled pork special & slaw on the side. Huge serving of pork & beans! Take away is 6.95(v.good value) to eat in its €10.95 but it's a huge amount...the slaw is tasty & healthy option.

Delicious "Mediterranean Feast". Service was a little slow (but the restaurant was packed) but the food is scrumptious. The style is Middle-Eastern, but with original "twists" thought up by the chef. A salad platter to start, which of course included hummus, but with a touch of beetroot as a tasty original "twist". Beautifully seasoned and flavoured mains, beef kofta meatballs, and fish tagine. All in all, a beautiful meal.

The size of the portion of the hot pot was already small (4 meatballs, grains and spinach) and at price of €6:95 and now ye've introduced the "Lunch box" it has become even smaller. I'm sorry, but this is just bad value for money.

Amazing coffee and fantastic danish (scrolls). I have also had pancakes here in the past and loved them too. A cool and quirky cafe with fantastic staff who always offer a smile.

Having read great reviews I couldn't wait to try their brunch and I wasn't disappointed. I loved the laid back atmosphere perfect for a lazy Saturday. morning. I had the bircher to start, absolutely delicious, followed by the semolina pancakes with a tangy berry compote and moreish praline, washed down with a lovely minty Moroccan iced tea. Couldn't resist a deliciously sticky cinnamon swirl to take away for afternoon tea either.

My first visit here and it's a little too crowded for my personal liking! Menu looked great but food lacked flavour and bread was cut very thinly..service was excellent and staff all super friendly though!

I just want to start off by praising the staff here, they were absolutely lovely. Overheard an interaction between the manager/owner and our waiter and there was such mutual respect and kindness it was so endearing. We ordered a pulled pork sambo, which lives up to its reputation as best sandwich in Dublin, and soup. Both come with a generous side of a salad so we weren't left hungry. Coffee is really tasty and the Moroccan iced tea I tried this time was really refreshing for a sunny afternoon. There are so many things on the menu that I want to try, I can't wait to come back.

I got the pulled pork and beans which was just OK, and not good value for €10 The other meal was the smoked salmon on bread + salad, which I'd had before. it's excellent. The service here is always excellent and they are very friendly and helpful. The new space next door is lacking any kind of ambience and feels like a school canteen. Not recommended. The original place remains a classic. Choose where you sit and what you eat and you will be happy. Great coffee also

THE PLACE TO BE!!! I love this funky café, the very first time I was there, athlete Sonia O' Sullivan was sipping her coffee by the window, It is a little gem on Capel Street that does the nicest mocha EVER made with coffee. Some of us just cannot drink coffee any other way but Brother Hubbard do the best mocha in Dublin and I've had one in SO MANY PLACES. Their cakes and scones are to die for and there are also some super seed cakes and gluten free buns that don't make you feel so guilty. Will be back again during the week for a mocha and a scone. Also the whole team of staff are so so lovely and make you feel right at home.

I ate here & really enjoyed the food. We were lucky to get a table when we walked in, others after us had to wait for tables. The decor is pretty cool & there's quite a sprinkling of hipsters inside. The table was small & as the place itself is pretty tight on space we got a few elbows in our backs & found ourselves listening involuntarily to the table next to us conversation. But the food was really good, original (Moroccan pancakes), fresh & very tasty & I would go back for more, much more. Maybe at a quieter time though. The service was fast & friendly.

I can't fault this place at all. Have eaten here a couple of times and can't wait to go back. Amazing salads and bread. The coffee is also excellent and it is clear they are passionate about selling a quality product. The design has a really fresh, simple and contemporary feel. It is always busy, which creates a great atmosphere. Really impressed as it is an independent café, great to see good spots like this in Dublin.

I went to Brother Hubbard for the first time today for lunch. I had a sandwich and a salad. The ingredients of the dishes proposed (mainly salads, soups and sandwiches) are quite basic, but the quality seems excellent. There is a good atmosphere and an interesting crowd. The service is fast and efficient, which is really what you are looking for your lunch break, and the staff very friendly. Also very good value for money. € 6.90 for a sandwich and a small side salad. I will definitely go back.
