Glad to revisit - top quality Cafe

Went to Crawford Art Gallery Cafe for special occasion and was not dissapointed. No bookings means you have to go early not to be dissapointed. Food top class with lots of imagination - Jackie was superbly helpful and brought a dessert with candle very discretely. Highly recommend a visit.

Great spot that you should not miss... I've love it here for breakfast, lunch or a coffee. (not open for dinner). The food here is full of daily specials and so fresh. Really great staff and a beautiful room. One of my favourite places in Cork City.

The lady who served us was so nice! I asked her what the soup was like and she gave me a sample. She was a really welcoming person who made our lunch break very enjoyable. The coffee is fantastic too. What a great setting in the centre of the city...a real gem in the heart of the most wonderful city... More

this restaurant is within the art gallery and the design of the room extends a sense of 'class''; fare was good but not spectacular but the service was very pleasant and professional.

We found this excellent cafe by accident when we wandered in to the Gallery on the first afternoon of a short break in Cork. Excellent cup of tea in nice bone china cups and the most delicious cake we have ever tasted - orange and almond. The very friendly staff told me where to find the recipe so now I... More

Very conveniently located in the excellent Crawford Gallery, the quality and range of food are first class. The plate of devilled kidneys on sourdough bread, available as a starter or main course, is a particular highlight. The wine, by the glass, is eminently drinkable. Prices are reasonable. The staff, though, are the highlight. Very friendly, helpful and full of advice... More

Situated within the Crawford Art Gallery the Gallery Cafe was a great favourite of mine in years past but as I've lived abroad my entire adult life to date I haven't visited in 20 or more years. I'm delighted to say that it's as good if not better than I remember. Friendly & efficient staff; good menu with choices to... More

Thats it.Its cold and dreary and expensive. Its located in a gallery i and its a pity some effort is not made to make both this restaurant and the gallery itself more attractive.
