Brunch here is always a buzz and full of happy customers so it's a pleasure to visit. Herbed wild mushrooms on toast are to die for. A regular visitor here.

Myself and three friends visited Avoca Cafe on Saturday for brunch. When we arrived it was very busy & we were a little worried we'd either have to wait a long time or not get serverd at all. All worries were unfounded. We were greeted very nicely and shown to a waiting area. Shortly afterwards we were seated and ordered our food. The staff were friendly and courteous and not rushed or phased by an incredibly busy morning. Our food was delicious and brought out in a timely fashion. We never felt rushed or pressured to vacate the table and even stayed for a second round of coffee. I'd totally recommend Avoca and we'll definitely be returning. ;0)

Went looking for a full Irish this morning when wandering around town and saw the menu outside Avoca, and it looked good. The restaurant was on the second floor and, at 11.00 am, was mainly occupied by ladies who brunch. The five ladies at a nearby table raised the decibel level to near jet take-off proportions when the laughed at their jokes, but otherwise it was a pleasantly bright environment. The full Irish as interpreted by Avoca is slightly unorthodox. Witness, no choice as to status of egg - scrambled is the only way; no back rashers here - its american style streaky; no potato components available and no puddings of any kind; fried half tomato, check; and a very good mushroom and onion fry up; rocket on top - now that's a first for a full Irish. And did I mention that there was only one sausage - but that was a beautiful double-sized specimen that tasted sublime, if a sausage can be deemed to taste sublime. This was a classic case of the finished product being greater than the sum of its parts. And did I mention that it came with three slices of bread, two of which were a fabulous sweet, moist seed bread - gorgeous. The only down side was that a glass of (organic!?) orange juice and a very good but small sized americano pushed the breakfast to a lunch-priced €21.30, including the non-optional 10% service charge (and service was good - so no complaints there). A lot to like, but I do love my fried egg, and a little bit expensive.

Went to the basement eatery. Very unimpressive. The tea was in a paper cup and cost 2.50. Over priced and unpleasant experience

Lovely kitch decoration! Food was good with some excellent meals (porridge) and some a bit disappointing (Irish breakfast) but still a nice place to go, especially for brunch. Staff is really busy but always available and smiling.

Went here with a friend for lunch on a Sunday. It was packed and very loud, but overall a nice atmosphere. We were given the brunch menu-quite strange at 2pm, as it mainly had breakfast type food on it. Pity, as I was more in the mood for a salad or sandwich. I opted for the scrambled eggs on toast with a side of wild mushroom. The portion was HUGE with also a side of tomatoes and rocket, way too big for my liking and only managed to eat about half. The brown bread (I usually love avoca bread!) was over toasted and completely burnt on one side so wasn’t able to eat it at all. To be honest, when the food came out I got really excited, it looks pretty as picture, but once I tucked in I really found it to be very bland and was quite disappointed. With a drink a coffee after the bill came to 40 euro for the two of us. Not good value at all. The tip was included on the bill, never have I been going for lunch: table for two where tip was added onto the bill and I was quite annoyed about it. Service was good, but they should leave it up to people what they want to add as tip. Overall I wouldn’t go back for their breakfast/ brunch menu as there are better value places around with tastier food.

The food here really is superb. Atmosphere is lovely, if a bit noisy at times. Really love the rustic quirky look. My one problem about Avoca is that they add a service charge on all bills. I work in hospitality and understand that they make up the staff wages, but should be discretionary. I ate here one day recently with a friend, and we're treated to really bad, rude service. Although we were only having cake and coffee I still think service shouldn't suffer. I decided, as they were really busy, just to pay the bill with the service charge and send an email of complaint to Avoca head office, which I never got a reply to. This is not very good customer service, I still return as I love the place and the food, but next time the service is bad I will dispute the service charge.

Avoca is a Dublin institution when it comes to Sunday brunch. Though that's not to say it's not a great spot for lunch or breakfast any other day. I only ever order one thing on the menu - French Toast and Crispy American style Bacon. It is always perfect, and always incredibly delicious. Watch out for a bit of a wait though, the place gets very, very busy at the weekends!

First time here but won't be my last. Delicious food - I had the terrine which was recommended to me, and I can see why. And so filling for 7ish euro! Staff were friendly and smiling walking around. The decor is eclectic and fun. We got there around noon and the place was half full, but by the time we left it was jammed. Very happy with the entire experience.
