Great vegan breakfast - Edit

Fruit salad with soy yogurt, porridge, vegan scones, and smoothies... that's a perfect breakfast spread for me. They also have juices but unfortunately most of them are in plastic bottles. Service was warm and cheerful. Enjoy!

yummy - Edit

The main two salad plate is huge and delicious -- the salads are quite varied and very good. Raw carrot and avocado soup was amazing. All the desserts are vegan. Really nice place, homey and warm -- we ended up eating here two days in a row. Central location too.

The best vegan food in town! - Edit

We ate at Cornucopia during our short stay in Dublin and were absolutely delighted! The restaurant is very centrally located and therefore a short walking distance from any of Dublin's main tourist attractions.
The menu changes every day and consists of soups, salads, a number of hot dishes, and varied desserts. When you walk in you get in line and order your meal cafeteria style and pay then. Their portions are very generous and the food beyond delicious. The menu is vegetarian, but extremely vegan friendly. There are even some raw options.
The menu is varied with options like curry, cannelloni, and shepherds pie. There is the option of getting a main dish and two salads for $13, which is a great value.
However, the highlight of our meal was dessert. The sweets selection at Cornucopia is overwhelming, but in a good way. We had their chocolate chip scone and blueberry scone, and these were the most delicious scones we have ever tried, vegan or otherwise. Our only regret was honestly not trying their raspberry cheesecake because they did not have it on the second day we went (their whole menu changes every day).
If you're vegan and you're in Dublin, you must try Cornucopia!

Pros: large portions, delicious desserts, varied menu

Cons: crowded at lunch time, too many good options

Good eatery for vegans - Edit

I stopped by for lunch and appreciated the many and clearly-marked vegan options. The dishes looked really fresh and there was a good selection of salads, mains, desserts and drinks. I ordered a curry which was fine but way too acidic for my taste, but the side salad was very nice. I had a problem when paying with my credit card at first and the staff were very understanding - on the whole the space and service are a bit impersonal. I would definitely recommend this for its convenient location and good selection of vegan foods though.

* Be sure to bring a large appetite or be prepared to share.

Lovely food - Edit

It is not 100% vegan, but the vegan dishes are amazing. Not small portions either, just about enough. The cakes and pies are also absolutely recommended!

Delicious and a must visit if you're in Dublin - Edit

I was recently in Dublin on holiday and found this place after being recommended on tripadvisor. Probably the best place I went to for food in the entire time I was in Dublin.

I had a veggie filo pastry with stuffing and salad, while my friends had lasagne (veggie not vegan) and stews. All of us either cleared our plates completely or ate until we were completely full.

The salad selection was really impressive, with vegan options clearly marked.

Honestly such a cool place with a lovely atmosphere and delicious food.

Pros: Amazing food, Good selection, Pretty setting

Cons: A bit pricey, but Dublin is an expensive city

Life savers! - Edit

Lucky enough to find this place on a stag, spent nearly the whole weekend there away from the lads lads lads. Delightful service with a relaxed canteen style approach but the food was truly stunning. Plenty of seating in a warm cafe-like environment, I'm just sad I couldn't take it back with me to the UK!

Pros: Perfect vibe , Brilliant grub

delicious range of main courses and salads - Edit

You can choose from a range of excellent main courses or even select to combine from two of them. Most appeared to be vegan or otherwise vegetarian. You take your food to the till and pay up front. Nice relaxed atmosphere. Food was really delicious.

Pros: Excellent range of mains and salads, Relaxed and unfussy atmosphere, Truly delicious

Nothing but love for Conucopia! - Edit

We feel lucky to have had Cornucopia as an option for vegan food in Dublin because it was delicious and we needed nourishing foods after so much plane travel and 2 days of walking around Dublin. It also seems that they are one of the only vegan places in the area that serves food later (until 10 pm) and was definitely one of the only places open on Good Friday. Thank you Cornucopia for not only being open on Good Friday when no one else is but for running an amazing special that night. You kept us well-fed while in Dublin and we're sad to think we might not be back for a long time. Side note: reasonable prices for the amount of food that you get. In the US and many other places like Europe you'd pay by the pound or kilo for that type of plate of food and it would be double the cost.

Pros: location , vegan food!, hours of operation

I wasn't sure how much luck I would have with finding vegetarian options in Dublin, but I was pleasantly surprised by Cornucopia!! I got the Mushroom and Lentil Lasagna with the Coleslaw and Cucumber/Daikon Salad and everything was amazing!!! The portions are huge and I couldn't finish everything. 10/10. I wish I lived here so that I could come everyday!!

Sustain this wonderful place! - Edit

There are very few vegan options in Dublin so it's very important that everyone protects this precious and wonderful place. Entrees are available with 2 salads or soup for 13.95 euros. I had the very delicious vegan "parcel" with beet root and tofu topped with a peanut marmalade along with chickpea and Brussel Sprout salad and the barley and Swiss chard citrus salad. A man threw a knife at me when I was sitting in the dining area so please be aware of mean people. Staff was very kind so there is hope!

Many vegan options - Edit

This is the kind of place where you order at the counter and seat yourself with a tray. Even though it's not a vegan restaurant, most things seemed to be vegan and they were clearly marked as such on the menu. Even some desserts were vegan. I had the noodle stir fry as a main and two salads on the side. I didn't care too much for the stir fry (too much lime flavor for my taste buds), but the salads were surprisingly good.

Pros: Many vegan options, Many tables

Nice place! - Edit

Just a great vegetarian restaurant. I've been going here for years. My most recent visit involved a brazil nut and mushroom baked pasta that was so good, it made me want to blackmail someone for the recipe. Brilliant food. Even their fruit salad is delicious, which is amazing considering normally I don't like fruit, salad, or fruit salad :). Clean and pretty surroundings. Great range of dishes. Great location. If I have a complaint, it's that I think the layout could be rethought - space is so tight, I've seen people in the queue accidentally knock dishes off the tables just by turning around. Also it's comparatively expensive, and the staff can be cranky sometimes, but then the place is so popular, they're very busy. I recommend this restaurant.

Pros: Delicious food, Great location, Range of dishes to suit different ways of eating

Cons: Crammed and not mellow, Staff can be cranky at times, Inaccessible for folks in wheelchairs

must when in Dublin - Edit

Went on my second day in Dublin, and boy I wish I could have found it earlier. Vegetarian self service restaurant with lots of vegan options. Every main (13.50€) comes with two salads of your own choice. Lots of interesting flavours and huge portions. Both my omni parents and flexitarian boyfriend loved it. Lots of tables (several floors) all packed with people enjoying their food.

Lovely William Morris wallpapers and Faith by Nature toiletries.

The bill came up to 46€ for three mains(+ salad sides) and a big soup with a good piece of spelt bread.

Pros: nice vibe. , lots of vegan options, huge plates

Cons: tables too close together

definitely a must eat at when in Dublin! - Edit

I was overwhelmed by the vegan choices, almost all lunch options (4 out of 5) were vegan, as well as all the salads and cakes! It was so hard to make a decision which one to choose ;-) We ended up with a yummy moussaka, two great salads and carrot cake for dessert. I can only highly recommend trying all those vegan yumminess!

Pros: lovely place, centrally located, so many vegan options, great quality of food
