Nice place to pop into for a quick bite. Had breakfast here, tasty scrabbled eggs and homemade soda bread toasted. Quick service which was great and very efficient staff. Place seemed pretty busy too.

Great for breakfast or brunch, their covered cozy backyard garden is a delight. Perfect place to eat something by UCC if you are tourists visiting, just coffee and scones or beautiful eggs benedict or florentine.

Can't recommend Cork as a destination enough. Stayed at excellent River Lee hotel and used lovely Serendipity for breakfast. Great local food served by charming staff.
