Great coffee and brunch options, you will not be disappointed! This has become a regular treat for me. Staff are very friendly and provide great service. Expect a wait for a table at peak times like 1pm on a Saturday, worth the wait!

Cool, laid-back atmosphere. This is truly one of corks hidden gems! And is quite possibly the best culinary experiences in Cork!

I was lucky enough to find this little gem last summer. I had lunch there several times and I was never disappointed with any of my choices. Had breakfast there once and again not disappointed. Food is fresh, well priced, well presented and portions are good. Service is friendly and efficient. Restaurant and bathrooms were spotless.

This has quickly become one of my most frequented places in Cork city, the food/coffee is always consistently good and the service is fantastic. Good venue for most occasions lunch with friends/family/children. Hidden gem for their Sunday Brunch- its the best in Cork IMO.

Ate lunch here recently with my husband and really liked it. Great value for money. I had the burrito and it was very tasty, cost less than a tenner. My husband had the salad with tuna but unfortunately was not very impressed. However he said the flourless chocolate cakes(he's coeliac)more than made up for it. Lovely coffee too. Great setting...

Had a fabulous Sunday brunch here yesterday. Menu is very varied & caters for all tastes. I had the pork belly with poached eggs and hollandaise sauce ... OUTSTANDING. They even rustled up a delicious meal of vegetables & bacon for my two year old daughter. We will definitely be back.

We stopped in for breakfast/brunch on a Saturday morning. Although the website says they are open from 10am, the kitchen doesn't actually open until 11am, but when we got there at 10.30 they were very accommodating and started cooking early. This cafe has one of the most varied breakfast menus I've seen in Cork, with a great BLT, lovely salmon... More
