You don't have to be vegetarian to enjoy this established wholefood restaurant, which is well located for a wholesome re-charge if you're shopping around Grafton Street.
Originally a wholefood store with a few tables at the back and, although this Dublin restaurants now been a dedicated restaurant for some time, a waft of that unmistakable aroma remains.
It may give out mixed messages in various ways - the smart red and gold frontage and pavement screen seem inviting in a mainstream way, but the atmosphere is actually quite student / alternative. It is very informal, especially during the day (when window seats are well placed for people watching), and regulars like it for its simple wholesomeness which - a rarity in restaurants - is pleasingly redolent of home cooking.
Vegetarian breakfasts are a speciality and all ingredients are organic, as far as possible. Yeast-free, dairy-free, gluten-free and wheat-free diets are catered for, and no processed or GM foods are used. Organic wines too.
And their cookery book 'Cornucopia at home, The Cookbook' (Atrium Press), has introduced a whole new generation of happy diners - vegetarian and otherwise - to this delightful restaurant and its philosophy.
