I have worked next to this place for a year now and as I said to the staff, unfortunately I only discovered it now. It's wonderful in every way! The staff, the atmosphere, the fresh, unique ingredients. I swear by it. I won't want to get lunch anywhere else in the city. I recommend number 5 on the sandwich board. Who knew a healthy sandwich could be so exciting. Highly, highly, recommend this place!

Thank Aoife O

Decent cappuccino and a flat white (especially the cappuccino) were enjoyed in this unique room (part of an former library). Prices were reasonable and service was efficient, without being overly friendly. The large sofa in the middle of the cafe is definitely somewhere that most people would gladly spend a couple of hours on a wet or cold evening; it's certainly the type of place that's conducive to taking it easy and enjoying a coffee. Will return in the near future.

Had a quick coffee and snack with my wife on Sunday at 11.30. Service great. 2 Americanos, one raspberry scone off the baking tray and a sausage roll, and all for under €7.50! Fantastic.
Worth a visit if in Cork and I am from Limerick!

Had a nice sandwich here for reasonable price but they did not give me a receipt. Also felt rushed to order even though it was a quiet time and there was no queue. Found staff very cold. They looked like they did not want to be there.Otherwise nice decor but prob not be back due to staffs attitude.
