Groundstate Coffee Reviews:

This place is just across the road from where I work and I really wish I had money to have lunch there everyday! 😂 staff are always very friendly and helpful, and even though sometimes it might get busy, they always have a smile on their faces. It never took me more than 10 minutes to get my food, and they make the best coffee in town, and it matches perfectly with their pastel de nata! I’d highly recommend for tourists and locals for coffee and food 🙂 – Taynara

Fabulous place for hearty breakfasts in the morning before a big day of sightseeing in Dublin! The bowls are well filled and above all very good. The servers are very welcoming and the service is quick. The products are mostly homemade, I recommend! – Lilou

We found this cafe by chance on our way to walk around Phoenix park. We ordered take out and the servers were very friendly and accommodating. The ham/cheese and pastrami sandwiches were excellent. Great spot to visit after touring the Guinness storehouse. – Melissa

Came for early impromptu brunch and this place did not disappoint. Staff were attentive and helpful. Amazing balance of meat and vegan options so both of us had choice! I had the vegan sambo with marinated mushrooms, vegan ricotta and kimchi on sourdough and it’s probably the best vegan breakfast sandwich I’ve had! Sides of roast potatoes were generous and deliciously seasoned. And my partner had the new spicy chorizo eggs with homemade chilli relish which I’ve been told was sensational, which encompassed creamy scrambled eggs and rich speciality chorizo sausage. The coffee was also delicious. Wish we had room to take some home on our flight! – Jasmine

First time eating here. Staff and food top quality. Couldn’t be nicer. Really nice place to eat. – Cathal

We had lunch at Groundstate before to our Guinness visit, it was probably the best meal we had in Dublin!
The ham and cheese toast was delicious, beautiful location and the staff super friendly and kind. Highly recommend to anyone!
