If you are in Cork, please do yourself a favour and have a coffee here. It's a small spot but very cool. Baristas were very friendly, coffee great, and lovely fresh baked goods.

The baristas here are utterly devoted to giving good service. They are friendly and efficient and have no attitude. I always try to squeeze in the time for a coffee if I am in the city.

We enjoyed our coffees so much we came back 2 days in a row. A hidden gem outside of the usual touristy area but well worth it for a quality coffee. Staff are very friendly with great tunes playing. Highly recommend.
