“Excellent Veggie grub!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

It was so great to find this little gem in the heart of Dublin. The Veggie food was homemade, delicious and plentiful, all for 10 euro. Brilliant to see veggie food doesnt have to be boring! It was also good to see they had veggie wine options!The only gripe I had was it was self service (Buffet style). But other than this I would definitely be back!

“Veggie heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Be it solo anytime day or evening or meeting friends, there's always a good vibe and lots of yummy food to choose from: salads, soups, mains with/without salad, delicious cakes and teas - herbal and regular - and coffee. The menus change daily. Even though the blackboard gives you a good overview, the staff is always friendly and will help you make a choice at the hot counter where you get your food first before you sit down. I like the interior a lot, esp. since the renovation and extension, and I've always found a seat when I went in. Also enjoyed the live music that's on some nights of the week. All in all my first port of call for great vegetarian food!

“Vegetarian Delight in Heart of Dublin!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

Thank god for Cornucopia! I was very nervous about eating in Ireland as it is not really known for veg friendly food. However, I found at least one restaurant in each city I visited or at least a veg friendly option on the menu. Cornucopia is really deliscious and they do not skimp on the portions either. We had enough for lunch and a light dinner back at the hotel later. Try the potato salad if it is available. They add hazelnuts to it and it is divine. I also really liked the cole slaw, though I may have liked being asked if I knew what cole slaw was even more! I ended up having a tasting of coleslaw all across the country. As a girl from Texas, that was heaven.

The interior is a bit cramped but the decor is lovely and the service lovely. You choose your items like at a buffet or cafeteria, then seat yoruself. It can be a bit tricky to get refills on water but otherwise a real delight.

“Great selection - great vegetarian food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

We loved it so much, we ate at this restaurant 3 times over the course of our 5 day visit in Dublin. There are many choices each day. We ordered a total of 6 different 'mains' and 12 different side salads, a soup and a dessert - and loved everything!
