Excellent local produce

I had a gorgeous breakfast bap with tomato relish and coffee and my boyfriend had the most delicious banoffee pie I've ever tasted. The service was great, our... read more

This is a must experience if you're visiting Cork. Its upstairs at the English Market. Unfortunately we visited on a raw cold day and to say the dining room is chilly is an understatement. It does go with its environment i.e. the English Market. Food is excellent. I had a bacon bap on gluten free bread. Excellent. My sister had... More

Gorgeous place with lots of smells and tastes that really awaken the senses. The clientele were a nice mixed bunch of old and new, suits and woolly jumpers, couples and friends. I had a beautiful ham sandwich and you could taste the artsinal detail in every bit. Fresh hock, fresh bread, sweet relish... what a treat.

Located on the second floor of the market it can take a minute to find but just ask some of the butchers and they will point you in the right direction. Very good eggs and the rest of my order was tasty but the price was high for the portions. A tiny glass of fresh orange juice (and I do... More

Visited Cork over Christmas. The English market is a must for anyone visiting Cork. Upstairs overlooking the market is the farm gate cafe. We came for breakfast the first morning and kept coming back ! The cosy atmosphere and welcoming staff made us feel as if we were locals! Reasonable prices and great location. Best of all is the food... More

The market cafe is locate in the English market and is a great place to sit and enjoy the market! The food is delicious and portions are huge, however it is a little pricy for a cafe but worth it. Definitely a must visit if your in cork!

It can be hard to nab a seat here in the high hours, and with good reason-- the food is mouth-watering good, and the service friendly. A great spot for people-watching passerby in the market below, the cafe is a great way to take a break from the bustle below. You may be sitting a little close to your neighbour,... More
