Well, I finally made it to Lurve Vegan Café on Mary Street in Dublin. It was a case of third time lucky for me, as they had a few teething problems with staffing, so twice before it was closed when I got there. I was delighted to find it open the third time - this place is such a welcome addition to the north inner city.

I got a friendly welcome from the two staff and it was more like visiting someone's house than a café. They had no pen on the day so I gave them a spare and then they wanted to give me my cake for free. I paid, though - they need all the custom they can get.

I had already eaten lunch so I just had their carrot cake and it was sweet, dense and spicy. Delicious. I will definitely be going back next time I am in Dublin for soup, hummus, sandwiches - whatever I can fit in. This time I will bring Mr Vegan so he can delight in having the pick of the menu (a rare treat for him!)

Prices are reasonable and the décor is cute. It was a cold day when I was there and the café felt cold too, but hopefully that will get sorted out.
