While the food itself is delicious, the experience is more about the restaurant's location - on the second floor overlooking the English Market. Great atmosphere and a nice place to relax and people-watch. The staff is always friendly and the food very fresh... just avoid at lunchtime as it gets crowded!!

If you want a good coffee, tasty and fresh food while people watching in the centre of Cork this is the place. No more to say, always has been a favourite. If you plan to go around lunch time, it is usually jam packed so be patient, or share! Great way to meet people.

I had the pleasure of visiting Cork and couldn't miss the English market. While there we went to famgate. We did have a wait but it was lunchtime on a busy Friday and I think you need to be realistic! All the staff were very nice but Marco made it memorable! We had a lovely very later lunch sadly so...

Everything is homemade from all local produce. From breakfast to lunch there is so much to choose from that more than one visit is required. The food is second to none. From the scones to the lunch menu the quality can be tasted in the end product. Excellent service and the staff are extremely helpful. As it is in the... More

I booked the Friday lunchtime table for three, but telephoned the day before to say we were unfortunately down to two. The staff member... More

The service and the place are very welcoming. Good options of cakes and coffees/teas. You can sit down looking at the movement of the English Market. Very good!
