It may be open all day and catering to a steady flow of customers from breakfast to dinner, but it would be unfair to write off the Larder as a mere café. It is much more sophisticated than that. For a start, the food is a cut above the normal café fare - whether it's a warming dish of yellow bean chicken or Moroccan meatballs with mint couscous, or a simple reinvention of a salad niçoise with chargrilled tuna fillet on a caper-infused crunchy green salad. Also, there are plenty of great wines to choose from (as well as excellent smoothies, great teas and Illy coffee) and there's no shortage of room to spread out in the long dining room, with its rugged brick walls, metal lampshades and towering shelves. Our preferred spot is right in the window, ensconced in the scarlet wing-backed armchairs - the perfect place from which to calmly observe the crowds of Temple Bar hurry by as you sip a camomile and nana mint tea and pick at a mixed berry crumble tart.
