I visited this small cafe some weeks ago with my "very pregnant" daughter. The lady in charge was so helpful and made sure we had the big table even though there were only two of us. The food was delicious especially the yummy coffee cake!...More

I say no more. €24 for two fish pies that had 2 pieces of fish in it literally! The most expensive potato pie if one should wish to indulge! Shame as the place has a nice feel to it!

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.
