They have a lovely take on the traditional Irish breakfast but every aspect of it is unique in some small way. I have had lots all over the island and do not think it is done better. If this is their style, I can't wait...to try some of the lunch offerings...More

Great little find. Was looking for a vegan brekkie while staying in Limerick and this was close to the hotel Ordered the vegan breakfast with freshly squeezed orange juice. The premise was very trendy. The staff were very helpful and accommodating. The food was so...tasty! The flavours were top notch - everything was fresh and cooked to perfection. Overall the meal set us up for the day and we will defo be returning!More

I just love the fact this place has been able to reopen. David and his team worked so hard throughout the pandemic and recently reopened. We have missed you and your great food!

Unfortunately with the cafe closed due to Covid, availed of the Green Onion Cafe's takeout/home delivery meals. The beef bourguignon x 2 and 4 sides were a real treat, absolutely delicious. Great quality ingredients and food. Very easy to prepare with detailed instructions. Definitely will...re-order and look forward to visiting once it re-opens post Covid.More

Ordered dinner for 4 from Green Onion today as we are all sick of cooking ! From the ease of ordering over the phone ( really friendly service, straightforward menu ), the on time delivery, the instructions for reheating to the eating of the most...delicious meal ; everything was perfect. We had pork belly , beef bourguignon, mash,gratin potatoes, veg, & garlic ciabatta and it was so tasty. Very generous helpings and great value all helped to make it a lovely Friday evening , well needed. Thanks Dave and crewMore

I came here for the first time today and I though the food was good but it was overpriced. The coffee was good and the food was fresh although I don't know anywhere else in Limerick charging €6 for a soup, even the hotels. The..."pie's" are made with filo pastry. They tasted good, but not €9 good. We sat outside because of the current situation with covid and the staff didn't seem to care about the tissues that blew from tables onto the street.More

James, you gave 4 stars on Google accompanied by a smug, badly-written ‘review’. You took offence at my response and not only changed your original 4 stars to 1, but had your partner give us a 1 star review there, along with another anonymous 1...More

This is such a wonderful cafe, run by the friendliest of people. Always smiling faces to greet you, excellent service, local coffee and seriously tasty food. Our little family was delighted to get back in there after it reopened. We felt very safe with all...the precautions that have been out in place by the cafe. We tried some dishes we hadn’t tried before and two of the specials; the holy bagels with smoked salmon, spinach, poached eggs and hollandaise and the Belgian waffles which were out of this world (what are ye putting in the waffles? 🤤) We also ordered the superfood salad, which was delicious. My son had a custom breakie with sausages and black pudding. He is a black pudding connoisseur and by god did he approve! (I meant to ask where it came from? It was so good). Can’t wait to go back soon, thanks!More

A few years back there was a lovely restaurant in Limerick Green Onion but alas it closed. So I had noticed a cafe near this one had opened. A friend told me the best coffee in Limerick was the Green Onion. So today we called...there for lunch after a talk as part of the Limerick Literary Festival- and what a find- I can honestly say it was challenging choosing from the menu as everything looked so good & suited all tastes. Along with this there is a lovely atmosphere. And guess what we have to return for the coffee. Limerick are lucky to have a place to eat with such high standard. Well done to all involvedMore
