Description: The Workshop is a local family business run by brothers Aiden and David. Our menu is very simple, for breakfast we serve, Organic Porridge with fruit compote, French Toast and Bacon and Scrambled eggs and Bacon. Our Lunch menu consists of gourmet sandwiches, soups, daily hot specials and our Tapas Salad. If your looking for something sweet you've come to the right place, we have a fantastic selection of desserts available daily. We have a large selection of teas, use fantastic Badger and Dodo coffee, and a variety of specialty drinks from Mochas to Oreo Milkshakes. We try to keep things as local as possible with most of our suppliers found here in Cork. We aspire to echo the service of the good old days and so we serve our tea in vintage fine bone china. We have aslo taken a backwards approach to the phrase "out with the old in with the new" in that you'll find the furniture found within the premises is either Antique, Vintage or Up-cyclyed.

The workshop cork just adds to the food trail that cork has become famous for. What a fantastic amenity to have so close to the airport and the city. Have been there with friends and on my own several times and just LOVE it. It's a place that there is so many interesting things to see from the prize winning hens to the antiques and great gift ideas, that one isn't shy or self conscious of being on ones own. I think this scantuary will become even more apparent when the winter sets in and they light the wood burning stove. The coffee is first class. The cakes are delicious, my favourite at the mo has to be the rhubarb marangue! The spice beef sandwich is first class and great value. If you are looking for a quirky place to bring your friends then I couldn't recommend this more. Finally check out the loo it's like something out of a period movie. SO COOL! Oh I nearly forgot how kind and nice the staff are, wheather your young and trendy or older and like decent coffee everyone is welcomed with a smile. A Hugh thumbs up
