“Best coffee in Cork!”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

The Bookshelf Coffee House serves the best lattes in town! It tastes delicious, creamy and is prepared by a proper barista! Unlike other latte's in other establishments, their latte has the perfect temperature and milk/espresso ratio!

“Super place to come for coffee and cakes.”
Reviewed July 5, 2013 via mobile

Met a friend here for coffee and a chat. I hadn't been here before and am amazed at this hidden gem on South Mall.
It is really cosy and comfortable inside with couches, armchairs and lovely wooden chairs. There are lots of old books, etc around and an ancient telephone on display which add to the charm.
We had cappuccino, tea, coffee cake and marble cake all of which were delectable, the design on the cappuccino was very impressive and an indication of the service.
Staff were very friendly and the cost, while a little on the higher side was worth it.
Will be a regular customer from now on!

Reviewed May 25, 2013

Great coffee and cake. Please don't go so there will be room for me.

A private little nook upstairs. With two tables.

Ground level has nice comfortable old chairs and some window seats. 2 tables for 4, 1 table for 2, 2 tables for 2 and 4 stools by the window.
