Offering a different Roast in a Roll daily!

Gruel is a centrally located popular Dublin café with a loyal clientele. The signature dish of this comfortable and relaxed café is the diverse and delicious "Roast in a Roll" served daily. Each day diners can enjoy a different roast with some well-chosen garnishes in an ample crusty roll. 

Soup, sandwiches and salads as well as the popular "Roast in a Roll" are the highlights of Gruel. Steaming bowls of hot homemade soup with tasty ingredients such as grilled red pepper and prawn soup sweetly spiced and filled with chunks of carrot and aubergine can be enjoyed. Large salads are very popular at Gruel. Diners can choose from an enormous selection of salads placed on a large table in the centre of the room.

A good choice of beverages complements each meal including two kinds of Italian lager, Maeve's Crystal and an impressive choice of healthy fruit juices and smoothies. Gruel offers diners a good choice of teas and popular Italian brand, Illy coffee is available. Gruel is unusual to most Dublin Cafes as it stays open later and can be visited seven days a week.
