Honestly it was the first time in a vegan restaurant, we chose two vegan burgers with different vegetables side. You have to order at the cash, then you choose a table. Lovely, next time we'll go there without any problem.

Yet again, the Quay Co-Op has a fantastic lunch menu. It's so good to have such a good veggie restaurant in Cork. The staff are as friendly as ever. I really do recommend this place to anyone looking for good, wholesome and tasty vegetarian food.

I have been vegan for almost 2 years now. Being in Ireland, I struggled to find a lot of great vegan restaurants.. The Quay did NOT disappoint. I was able to stuff my face with incredible food. From mushroom and nut loaf with gravy all the way through to dessert.. my heart was full and happy all evening. I will... More

Dependable quality food at an excellent price.... and a bonus if you are vegetarian or vegan (but so delicious as to appeal to all). Relaxed comfortable surroundings, reading materials available, no rush to leave... highly recommended! Keep it up Quay Co-op... eating there for over 20 years and still look forward to it every time.

I've been here several times and never get tired of it. The food is amazing, as a non vegetarian/vegan person, when ever I have food there I don't feel like there's anything missing in it because is so well done and tasty. Great place to go at any time of the day and great service too.

We absolutely loved our experience here. Firstly, the set up is so relaxed and informal - kind of similar to canteen style. The staff are also super friendly Now the main event - the food!!!! Best selection of vegetarian and vegan food I've ever seen. Absolutely delicious, and the portions are just the best! Great value for money. Loved it... More

The only cafe in Cork where you can get a tasty raw dessert 😊Perfect at any time of the day! Lovely location with a beautiful river Lee view. Sit next to the window and enjoy the tasty, healthy food.

Everything about the Quay Co-Op is so quaint from the moment you walk in. The decor isn't perfect, there's art everywhere and the fire's always light on cold days. The staff are some of the nicest people I've come across in the food industry and the food is to die for! I always go in on my treat days and... More
