We loved this place so much we came here twice during our t day stay in Cork. A great choice of vegetarian dishes, from salads to hot meals or light lunches. Everything we had on both occasions was delicious.

A great unfussy vegetarian cafe located on the edge of the main city centre shopping area next to the river. The cafe is located upstairs, whilst an extensive wholefood shop is downstairs. You order at the counter, take a table and the food is prepared...More

During our 15 day stay in Cork, we came back to the Quay Co-op three times because of the hearty food, good portions, and view overlooking the River Lee. Friendly staff and laid back atmosphere were also a plus for us.

A hidden gem in Cork City. The food was fantastic, tasty, very good portions for a reasonable price. This place is also a market where you could buy your ingredients and get some other information about meditation, yoga classes and any type of well-being activity.

I ate twice at this cafe during my visit to the area and had a very tasty meal on both visits. I would recommend sharing a meal as main dish comes with a choice of 2 side salads and was plenty for two women sharing.
