“Friendly staff, excellent food in tranquil surroundings”
Reviewed October 10, 2012 via mobile

I haven't been here for at least 5 years and was glad to rediscover this gem of Cork's food scene. It has table service provided by friendly efficient staff and the atmosphere is tranquil and unhurried. The menu is brief and uncomplicated with daily specials presented well. There is a 10 euro special of soup/sandwich and tea or coffee which is good value. The prices otherwise are a little high and this is a cafe for a "special" lunch rather than a quick bite.

“Lovely olde worlde feel”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

Set in a largely pedestrianised area of Cork city right beside Cork Opera House the atmosphere is of an old worlde big house with lovely high ceilings and pleasant art along the way. ~Recommend any of the breakfast menu and the cakes!

“Great for breakfast in Cork city”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

Great spot to meet friends for coffee or breakfast. Scones are great and coffee refills are free. Very unique building situated just around the corner from the Opera House. It is well worth a visit.
Bathroom is right on the top floor so my advise is to take the lift.

“Wonderful experience”
Reviewed July 9, 2012 via mobile

Had a delicious lunch here with a good choice on menu. It was very busy on the day at it was at the height of the lunch time trade but after a very short wait we were seated and promptly attended to. We opted for a vegetarian dish which was more than adequate. A wine list is available. There was a great buzz about the place and frequented by locals who it seems on enquiring return several times a week. Location in the centre of Cork city beside the Opera House is perfect.
