I’ve really enjoyed our last few visits to Ma Boyles and so returned again on Sunday but felt very let down. Previously we have ordered from the main menu but this week came earlier to try the breakfast menu. Two of us had the vegan standard breakfast. The portion was tiny, 2 minute falafel sausages, probably smaller in weight than a standard falafel, 3 cherry tomatoes, 2 fried button mushrooms (not even full, they were halved) hidden under the smallest piece of slightly fried potato (hash brown? no bigger than a very small post-it note) and some beans in a small pot, not forgetting the dry toast. Vegan spread was obviously not available, nor advertised on the menu as the other breakfasts boasted ‘buttered toast’.l, the vegan breakfast just said ‘toast’. Milk and butter alternatives are easily found in supermarkets and are standard in most bars and cafes that offer anything vegan on their menu but there was no vegan alternative milk available to accompany the decaf tea and no fruit teas either. What I actually wanted was a decaf latte but unfortunately there was no decaf coffee to go with the unavailable dairy free milk. We were very disappointed to say the least. I never ‘go large’ as I don’t have a big appetite but the ‘regular’ was a 5 year old childs portion. When we left, my husband took us to Costa on Old Hall Street to buy us the latte’s we’d wanted plus a vegan toastie for my daughter who was still starving. We won’t be returning anytime soon.

The only comment is that the person who seen to us at the door was quite forceful in his approach to the new covid regulations. My group are fully aware of the rules but despite this we felt he was over zealous with his approach before we had even entered. We gave him the benefit of the doubt as the new rules have only just come in.

Could not say honestly about value for money as the BuyaGift Voucher was a gift to me so do not know how much it had cost. Certainly we had a very good good afternoon and staff and service were excellent. Kathy

Had a lovely time. Covid measures were spot on. Service was faultless. Staff looked like they were rushed off their feet but they were literally on point with everything. Can’t remember the name of the guy looking after us but he was really friendly but also very assertive in the fact we had to abide to Covid rules. Would 100% return .Table 6 if that helps :-))
