Great baked goods, but the bap with the works is the BEST for breakfast. really i could give a list of the nice things to eat here. Staff are wonderfully friendly. It is a small space but definitely worth a visit.

Delicious coffee and melt-in-your-mouth pastries. Great spot in the centre of Cork City. It is a tiny piece of heaven! Seriously, it is small.... Tucked into a lane between Brown Thomas and Debenhams, this gem of a cafe is one of my favorites - and Cork has lots to choose from!

Have had coffee here on numerous occasions, it is a really busy, buzzy, great cafe. The coffee is always great, and the desserts or pastries are really fresh. Great atmosphere.

A little pit stop for shoppers and workers in Cork city centre Idaho has an athmospheric setting and though a little crowded it is possible to enjoy brunch while discussing the events of the day. The manager and staff are friendly and courteous and the coffee/tea and extras are always delicious..
