The only cafe in Cork where you can get a tasty raw dessert 😊Perfect at any time of the day! Lovely location with a beautiful river Lee view. Sit next to the window and enjoy the tasty, healthy food.

Everything about the Quay Co-Op is so quaint from the moment you walk in. The decor isn't perfect, there's art everywhere and the fire's always light on cold days. The staff are some of the nicest people I've come across in the food industry and the food is to die for! I always go in on my treat days and... More

From the upstairs restaurant to the downstairs deli, this store goes on and on with vegetarian goodness! To tell you the truth, I am so used to having to select just one thing on the menu. I was a little overwhelmed having to so much to choose from. I ended up having the nut loaf and my husband had the... More

The Quay Co-op store has a small deli counter that at first we thought was the restaurant, but they directed us to go two doors down and upstairs to the main restaurant. Whether you’re vegetarian, vegan, or just want to have some cheap healthy food, I’d say it’s well worth a visit. It’s a very cheerful space with some great... More

With a restaurant upstairs and a bistro downstairs there is a good variety of vegetarian and vegan foods to be found in this place. Tasty, but not outstanding. Good value for money. I like to come here on my own and in the early evening. Uncomplicated.

This café is in a lovely old building with high windows looking out over the street and river. Service is walk up to counter, select, pay, and sit. There are many vegan options but they do also serve some items with egg or cheese. I actually had to go check their website just now to see if they were completely... More

I visited here with my daughter over the weekend for dinner, my daughter is a vegetarian and finds it quite difficult to find restaurants with a good vegetarian menu. The quay co op restaurant is a vegetarian restaurant with a variety of good food at really good prices. Their wines are also organic and vegan. I would definitely visit here... More
