A solid part of Cork City life - not a bad word!
Posted on 03 / 27 / 2012
If I am in Cork for a week or so, I usually manage to make it a couple of times to this place, which is Cork is lucky to have. It has existed quite a few decades I think, and as such feels very much a part of the fabric of the City's social facet. The fayre and ambience are pretty typical of a a veggie cafe/restaurant - down to the notice board tightly packed with adverts for meditation classes and the like. None of this is a bad thing in my opinion :-) But what is perhaps different from other veg cafes is how spacious it is, over 2 floors as well, and with plenty of light. Often busy-ish with a gentle buzz it is the ideal place to gouch out over the papers on your own or with company. Food range is very good, quality always high. Probably 60% + vegan on mains, less on desert but still should be a few to choose from. You could hardly call it cheap, but neither is it expensive and it is certainly good filling value. A main with 2 decent sides is, I think 10.5E. I have probably been about 20 times and don't recall a single disappointment of any kind(the better half says they should be more regular about having vegan icecream tho :-) Often times it is delicious (maybe it will be a bit of sauce or the way the spuds are roasted, there's usually something unexpected to really stand out from the general quality - last time it was the Burmese noodles for me). Yep - not a bad word to say!
Very reliable high quality, gently buzzing atmosphere, Solid range, including for vegans
