Good place for a snack and coffee in a handy location in cork. Soup is especially nice! Get a window seat and gawk at the passers by while you munch your panini.

Wow, they don;t stint on the bread here. Stopped for breakfast and had scrambled egg on toast. The bread is lovely, toasts well and you get huge thick slices of it. Nice place for a hangover breakfast of a bit of lunch.

My girlfriend and I ordered coffees and pastries on our tea break. After 10 minutes of waiting for an Americano to arrive my girlfriend asked if it was nearly ready and received an abrupt reply from the girl with glasses and dark hair that it was nearly ready.

I had a vegeterian breakfast there it was very tasty, bit greasy though. The portion was just right and the Sourdough Toast was beautifully done, over all very tasty and priced well.

It was the first time I went there, and I must say I'm looking forward to coming back. I had a goat cheese and spinach quiche - one of the best quiches I ever had, served with salad on the side for 5€! The price is unreal. I was starving and I ordered their vegetarian benedict eggs, with grilled halloumi... More
