What a find! Top notch coffee and no-nonsense but *seriously* tasty grub. Lasagne is just perfect and the salads and sandwiches hit the mark. Free wifi too. I could live in this place.

Cake Café is the perfect Saturday afternoon hangout - hangover or otherwise! The baked eggs with bacon and soldiers are one of my favourite things to eat in the whole city. The place comes into its own on sunny days when the inevitable wait for an outside table comes becomes not just worth it, but a must. Luxury toast of the day is also great - the bacon and bacon one is excellent - and nothing has ever really disappointed here even if the staff can be a bit distracted and the coffee sometimes not quite hot enough. A couple of hours here with the papers amongst the trees makes everything ok.

DIG IN
19 Lower Camden Street, Dublin 2, Camden Street, Dublin

It's hard to argue with a place where the most expensive item on the menu costs a tenner. Green Nineteen has simple, no-fuss decor, and it fairly crams the customers in but it's ok because everyone's here for a decent, well-cooked meal that won't break the bank. (If you can resist the mojitos, that is.) It maintains a good neighbourhood vive and the staff are casual and very friendly. They seem almost as happy to have found the place as you are. The pot roasted chicken is gorgeous and the burger is simple and delicious. Only problem is that the short menu becomes a little tired after a while and you start to want something new.

Kanum Thai Ltd
77 Mespil Road, Dublin 4, Ballsbridge, Dublin

Tight, bustling little place that smacks of good food and friendly service. The Thai food is as good if not better than other, better known joints in the area and the service is way better. I asked for the server to 'throw in' some prawn crackers after I'd ordered - meaning 'throw in' as in 'I'll also take some...' but she threw them in for free. It's those little details that help you leave remembering a place. Great stuff.

Jai Ho Indian Restaurant
114 Rock Road, Booterstown, Dublin

Not a bad place but not loads to set it apart. Naans are nice and floury and the portions are generous. It's not particularly cheap, although the service is friendly and the location is handy. If you live nearby!

The Church Cafe Bar & Restaurant
Junction of Mary St. & Jervis St., Dublin 1, City Centre North, Dublin

Oh dear. Maybe I'm doing something wrong (or smoking something wrong) but I really don't get this place. The building is admittedly very impressive but I've been in DART stations with more atmosphere than this place. The music is bland (unless you *heart* Coldplay) and every bit of bonhomie that you might expect in a Dublin boozer gets sucked upwards and lost in the massive vaulted ceiling. Staff are a bit meh. It's a pity because the building is quite special but my advice is to avoid this place like the plague that probably contributed to the population of the graveyard next door.

The Steps Of Rome
1 Bird avenue, Clonskeagh, Clonskeagh, Dublin

All you need to know: easily the best pizza in Dublin. I end up back here again and again because of that slightly crunchy, perfectly salty, cheesy pizza slice. Pasta is great too and the house wine is simply, no nonsense, and seems to match everything perfectly. Service slightly shambolic but in that great Italian 'everyone is family' kind of way. Great stuff.

Odessa
13 Dame Court, Dublin, City Centre South, Dublin

Odessa used to be one of my favourites in town for a pre-club/theatre/bar dinner or a Sunday recovery brunch. But I don't think they've managed to keep up with the times. Menu is staid, prices are too high for the current climate and the food and service is a little tired and lacking in joy. They seem to be going through the motions. Still decent and always worth a try, just a pity they seem to be resting on their laurels for what must be a decade near the forefront of Dublin dining.
