Fantastic place for an afternoon soup or coffee. Fantastic place to people watch with a birds eye view of the English Market passers by. Fair price and nice staff. Sometimes it does get a bit crowded.

Here for lunch on a day trip to Cork. Efficient service. Very friendly staff. The counter staff recommended the shepherd's pie, which did not disappoint. So hearty and prepared with care.

Just had a brilliant bacon roll and tea here. The bacon was thick and full of flavour, and probably the best I have eaten. Great quality. Hubby had the cooked Irish breakfast and really enjoyed it.

Wonderful restaurant located upstairs from the famous market. One side is self-serve the other wait service. Try and get a table on the balcony so you can overlook the action below.
