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

Having walked around the Gallery, we were in great need for the services of this Cafe, and they did not let us down. It is good to know, however, that on busy days, they cannot serve tea/coffee only after 12.00 noon.

I went here to meet a cousin from the area who had recommended it. It looks very ordinary when you peek in, but there's a reason for the steady stream of customers and that's the good food at reasonable prices. I had tasty fresh salmon fishcakes, served with a very good roasted red pepper aioli and green salad. The aioli... More

The Gallery Café is as described inside the Cork Crawford Gallery. It is situated on the ground floor and is always full of a mixture of visitors to the gallery, students and shoppers. Its pretty large inside and does lovely scones, carrot cake, and various other delicacies that go well with a cup of Earl Grey or cup of Latte.... More

We enjoyed lunch at this cafe on Saturday afternoon last (March 29th) following a recommendation. When we were seated we were immediately brought a jug of water and some wonderful home-made brown bread. The menu was a little unusual, with bone marrow featuring on several items. My husband ordered the mackerel, served with baby potatoes & spinach which was very... More

Had lunch here recently and hadn't been here in a while. The light, art filled,high ceilinged airy room is an ideal lunch spot. The menu is minimal with few choices and seems to have been cleverly designed for maximum profit with minimum cooking and preparation and there is nothing wrong with that. The day I was there I noted wild... More

I've visited this cafe several times for lunch recently. The food is excellent. The menu is quite small and what they do they do well. Mushroom & spinach pancake, fish & chips, a savoury tart, bacon & cabbage were just some of the options available on my most recent visit. There is always a good selection of delicious home made...
