Visited poppies on Sat for lunch, the cafe is old world, which I assume is the look that they are going for, but not really my taste I always feel a bit uncomfortable with the sticky waxed table clothes. I had apple and parsnip soup, which was nice but a bit too hot (temp not spicy). My husband had quiche, which was served with salads. For dessert we had one of the famous Rhubarb Crumbles - which was more crumble then rhubarb - and coffee. Overall the food is ok, probably aimed for for visitors to the area rather then locals. I might try their new restaurant in Dun drum to see what it is like.

Can't understand how Poppies has received such positive reviews. Went here for lunch at the weekend and we got served overpriced reheated food, and we were sat at tables in a cramped space. You could possibly try it for coffee or dessert but I wouldn't be going back for lunch again. The lasagne we had was microwaved and tiny, and too expensive at over a tenner a portion.

Went in for tea and dessert. My mother used to love going when I was a child. Will go back for a meal and give it a propper review later...

Great little spot, perfect if you have visitors and want to bring them out to Powerscourt. Food always good and nice warm atmosphere.

Wonderful eatery. One tiny criticism. Really only an observation is that the menu is a bit short for me. Otherwise, it's a smashing place. Great staff. Good food. Keen prices. Great atmosphere. If you're anywhere near Enniskerry you should 'pop' in, even if it's just for a coffee. Trust me.

I love Poppies and have been coming here for about 20 years. One of my fav dishes is Poppies Chicken which reminds me of my childhood as we used to be brought to Poppies with my mother to share a portion of this scrummy creamy chicken with almonds and the unusual cornflake topping and then devour a slice of creamy chocolatey desert. Their coffee is excellent too. A really ralxing place to enjoy a Saturday afternoon treat alone or with friends. A must if you are in Enniskerry!
