Great little coffee shop, with the bonus that it's open on a Sunday. Got a really good flat white and service was very pleasant.

After trying a number of places, this place has become my local. Hands down the best flat white in town. This place has also been renamed Nectar. Coffee as good as I can get back home in NZ.

A great place to sit and read a book. Lovely coffee and really nice food on offer for lunch. The staff are friendly and the decor is very inviting. Not ideal for big groups but great if you're by yourself or just on the go!

I left Australia back in August and have been to Scandannavia before heading into Ireland. This is the best coffee I've had so far.

I've visited this place 4 times now before giving a review and every visit has been the exact same. The cafe is the most unproductive, frustrating and clustered cafe I've been too. Staff are not managed properly, because behind of the bar, staff looked flustered and unable to multitask. One person making the coffee, taking orders and taking payment while... More

At the top of the shopping district lives a great traditional coffee house. We had the flat whites and the barista skills and pride were evident. Nice selection of baled goods (not cellophane wrapped or mass produced). We went on a Tue afternoon and there was no crowd. Highly recommend!

One thing about Cork is that there are a lot of restaurants/coffee houses. The Coffee Quarter is located at the very end of Oliver Plunkett Street --- turn left about 50 yards or opposite the bus station from the other way. This was our find during our 3 days in Cork. We passed other places before we arrived at Coffee... More

I visited this place regularly for coffee/tea/brunch when I was visiting Cork for work. This spot was tiny, welcoming, clean and just so good! Smoothies were amazing. Coffee was amazing. Bagels were yummy too. 5 out of 5 :)

This spot was right on our way to the main shopping area (Oliver Plunkett street) and we stopped in two days in a row for afternoon coffee which was very good. The service was very friendly and provided some really good dinner recommendations.

If you're looking for filter coffee anywhere in Ireland, this is a great place to come. They only have one selection, but it's an excellent one, and well prepared. With single origin filter coffee and espresso, this shop is a gem among coffee shops in Ireland.
