Popped in on the offchance during the Cork Jazz festival. A busy wee place, tall tables and pretty uncomfortable seating and a wee bit cramped...but it is worth all that as the food is fantastic. The lovely girl behind the counter is a sheer delight and the standard of food and pricing is excellent. A great wee find.

I visited Gusto recently after not having been in there for years. I used to be a regular visitor when Marianne first opened, but moved away about 10 years ago and then this week was back in town for a wedding which was nearby. It was a real treat to visit again. Very tasty sandwiches, simple but nice salads, and... More

Nailed it with a 5/5 cappuccino today. Perfect blend of espresso and properly frothed milk. Good pastries too.

This place used to be one of our favourite for lunch when in town shopping; what happened in the past few months since we were last there...I dont know...But no more nicely arranged and appetizing food on the plates, no more beautiful bread, even the atmosphere has gone down. Have they recently changed management? If you order a toasted sandwich... More

We were staying in a hotel nearby for a short stay and decided not to include breakfast in the package as it would have cost a hefty €20 per person. Instead we decided to try Café Gusto. I ordered porridge with apple compote and cinnamon and a cappuccino . It was delicious and a perfect portion size. Himself had Spanish... More

I absolutely adore this place. Always order the goats cheese sourdough or else just a tea and a scone. The staff are always lovely which is always refreshing. If I can I sit by the window either with a friend or by myself and just watch the world go by blissfully! Brilliant food and brilliant people, would definitely recommend!

Popped in here for a quick hot drink. Ordered their chai tea latte, and loved it! Good value too, and friendly service. Would recommend!

Found this by accident but so glad we did. Perfect for a quick but satisfying lunch. Toasted ciabatta with spiced beef, tomato, red onion and horseradish to die for. The toasted ciabatta with chicken, bacon, Monterey jack cheese and honey mustard was just as good. Fresh squeezed orange juice and great coffee made two new visitors to Cork very happy.

Found this place by accident on our recent trip to Cork. What a find ! We had a couple of "specials" to eat followed by the best coffee we tasted in Cork all weekend. Great service and value for money. Try it - am sure you wont be disappointed

Had a bit of time to kill before my brothers graduation in UCC. So popped in and got myself a lovely fresh,fluffy scone with jam and butter along with a pot of tea and a delicious banana and honey porridge. The staff were nice and the food was very tasty and I left a happy and slightly full customer.
