We had passed this place a few times in the past and kept meaning to try it out, we went there last Saturday and were so glad we did. First of all the lady who greeted us at the door provided us with a lovely welcome, it was after 12 and we asked what were the chances of us getting... More

After seeing the reviews my wife and I decided to have Sunday brunch here. Lovely little restaurant with a nice menu choice and the staff were very friendly. What more could you ask for you might ask. Well not much except maybe to get my food the way I ordered it. I had high hopes for The Parlour Cafe and... More

Thank you for your review. You are always welcome here at The Parlour Cafe to make us aware of any orders which are not to your requirements/requests. I myself would not accept hard poached eggs as they should be soft unless otherwise requested. I would be very happy to see you return and introduce yourself as I would like to... More

This is the best place for Tapas in Cork. Great for breakfast at weekends too. Really nice food. Staff and owner so friendly. Good value and wine reasonable too. Could not recommend highly enough. Go for meal deal with 6tapas for €29. Perfect for 2 with a bottle of wine. Meat from their own farm. Fantastic.

Great spot for lunch. The eggs benedict are fantastic. Was there yesterday and it came with three decent sized slices of sourdough, topped with the most delicious, thick, lean bacon and two perfectly poached eggs. I forget the exact price but something like 8.50 - amazing. Have had lunch there before - a great beetroot and goats cheese salad. Good... More

Lovely fresh food. Lovely menu. The burger I had was stunning. It took my partner and I quite a long time to finish as the portions were so filling. Look forward to a return visit to explore the rest of the menu.

Enjoyed a very pleasant brunch in The Parlour Cafe. The food is very well presented, healthy and delicious. The staff are extremely pleasant - BUT - there is scope for table service which would greatly assist convenience for the customer and reduce the large queue to order/pay and then find a table..... Also, why not serve the delicious pizza before... More
