Very tasty vegetarian food. This place has been around for over 30 years so you know it's good. They say there is a cook book in their future so i will be looking out for it.

The Quay Co-op had really yummy vegan cakes! When i asked what salads were Vegan, I wasn't too impressed. They have a lot of vegetarian options, but not much vegan.

We are not vegetarians but do enjoy eating vegetarian food from time to time. We were in Cork for the day and spotted this eating place. We were not disappointed. The bread and the salads on offer were just lovely and a really refreshing change...More

Lovely, quiet place, delicious food and amazing coffee! Must try desserts: cheesecake (tofu based) and raw banoffee. All healthy and natural, but also very tasty.
