We popped in here for a quick bite to eat while visiting Cork city and the 3pm slump was hitting us. Service was OK, it was slightly slow but nothing that bothered us too much. We got Soup, a couple of sandwiches and some tea and a scone. Everything was nice, the bread on the sandwiches was lovely and they... More

Do not go here. Awful customer service. Haven't had worse. Ran out of basics such as red & brown sauce for full Irish breakfast. No butter provided for toast. Seemed to be a real struggle for staff to provide wifi password. Strongly advise to avoid this place.

Went here for breakfast with 5 people. The cafe was empty aside from us. We all ordered coffees and eggs on toast. We waited for over 25 minutes before we got any of our coffees and and our food arrived about 5 minutes after that. No apology or any comment about the delay from the staff. All of the poached...

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. Nearly 10 more minutes of waiting and we decided to get our... More

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.

I love the Whole Grain! The service here is fantastic. Although expensive, the food here is top quality and with a wide range of breads, ingredients and snacks you will be well satisfied regardless if you decide to eat in or get a to go sandwich!
