Great coffee and yummy breakfast. Waitress heard we were heading to Dingle and gave us loads of information and tips. Definitely find this place if you're in Cork.

Artsy and funky dining room steeped in blues music. The staff was exceptionally pleasant and attentive. Although I had a nice lunch, it was nothing really innovative or memorable. I wish that I could say that the meal was a good value.

Easily my favourite cafe in Cork. Friendly and welcoming, even when very busy, great coffee and delicious chocolate brownies. Top spot to chill for a half hour in Cork City.

A classic locally owned cafe not owned by a sterile formula driven chain. Instead, you have nice hosts, great simple food and a small cool room in which to eat and relax

Cosy place to grab a bite to eat! Excellent coffee and nice staff. If it is busy, maybe wander off for half and hour and try again.
