Respond to Review of CLOSED: Very Healthy Food
by Stevie

Review: I was here yesterday for lunch and found this an interesting place. Location is approx a 2 min walk away from the South channel of the river in central Cork. The emphasis is very much geared towards healthy eating as you would expect. There's quite a slant but by no means exclusively to war food. That includes for example what is billed on the menu as falafel but is in fact a faw food version (not something I tried). Everything is not only vego but indeed vegan. As well as being a cafe they also offer a small number of things that they sell as part of a health food shop. There is much decoration related to Indian culture. Also there is an area at the back that appears to be a meditation area. This is slightly elevated like a stage and I am told by the very friendly girl working there that they have various performances taking place there. For much of the time I was there, I was the only person in. The girl working there and I jibbered about any old things while she cut and chopped and sliced away while preping my meal. They do various meal deals and for I think it was around 8.45 euros I had a soup, hot food sandwich with salad, a chocolate and a cup of liquorice tea. It was all very nice and seemed good value. The girl working says there may be expansion of the menu in 2012. This may be a good idea in my humble view as while the place has its merits, Cork isn't the biggest place in the world and there is already Quay Coop & Cafe Paradiso offering competition for a limited market in a time of economic downturn.
