Fab place for breakfast or lunch, right in the heart of Cork City and the historic English Market. Great atmosphere at lunchtime with locals enjoying their lunch break in this much-loved restaurant. Sit at a table and gossip with friends over a reasonable and delicious soup or baguette or sip a coffee and treat yourself to one of the homemade cakes and watch the people milling about below in the Market. Also an excellent place for breakfast with a wide selection all at superb value. A must-visit in Cork!

This is one of my favourite cafes in Cork. It is a great place for meeting people, and hiding away if it's raining. I go to Tribes regularly with friends for both coffee and lunch. There is better coffee to be found in Cork but I do enjoy their Mochas, hot chocolates, tea and so on. Lunch is generally good. Their selection of sandwiches is excellent value at a fiver each, and I have always enjoyed the food on the menu, although I do think it is a bit on the expensive side. Their brownies are naughty but nice, but above all, what brings me back to Tribes time and time again is the surroundings. It is such a relaxing, charming place, and so comfortable. You can sit here for hours undisturbed, drinking coffee, eating lunch, chatting to friends. It is the best place in Cork for coming to when you just want to hide in out of the rain, or just the buzz of the city. If you're ever stuck in town after the shops have closed it's a great place to come to for a sit down. The only negative comment I would make is the fact that the prices are a bit steep for lunch time food. Other than that, I love it!

Viaduct Inn
Old Bandon Road, Cork City, Cork

Excellent pub for a casual lunch. Close to city centre, but also a good place to stop if passing on the way to west Cork. There is both a carvery and menu with sandwiches, toasted sandwiches, baguettes, enchiladas, wraps and more. Both are superb value with good food. Staff are friendly and attentive. A most enjoyable experience at a wonderful price.

Hamlets of Kinsale
The Glen, Kinsale, Kinsale, Cork

I spent a most enjoyable evening here with some friends. Staff were very attentive and the food we had was just perfect and everything such good value! There is a great range of places to sit with the indoor bar area, a beer garden out the back, a covered decked smoking area, and quirky huts, just perfect for groups of friends. It is in an excellent location too in Kinsale town. I highly recommend!

Vista
Shearwater, Pier Road, Kinsale, Cork

I regularly go to Vista for morning coffee. It is a very relaxing establishment with gorgeous views of the marina and a great place to sit outside and watch the world go by. Tea and coffee are reasonably priced and their scones and sweet treats are excellent. Lunch is also very enjoyable. The staff are attentive and it is simply a brilliant place to meet friends or chill by yourself reading the paper. With a selection of seating indoors downstairs and upstairs, outside on the ground floor and a balcony you'll be spoiled for choice!

Luigi Malones (Cork)
1-2 Emmet Place, Cork City, Cork

Have been here on many occasions for both dinner and lunch. Food is generally very good, and not expensive. It is an ideal venue for large groups. Very spacious, comfortable restaurant with nice decor. Great place for dinner before a show in the Opera House as it is located right across the square from it. The nachos on the lunch menu are some of the best I've had. Excellent for families also.

Cafe Bar Deli (Cork)
18 Academy Street, Cork City, Cork

Absolutely love this restaurant! Have been here for dinner mostly and couldn't fault it. Food is excellent and very reasonable. Superb staff with a friendly and efficient service. Great atmosphere and very comfortable. I've been here on numerous occasions and each time I have had a delicious meal and an overall great experience. Whenever my friend decide to go for dinner we always choose CBD now. Going there next week for a friend's birthday and I can't wait!

Amicus
Paul Street, Cork City, Cork

I have been going to Amicus regularly for the past few years and I keep going back. I find it especially handy for lunch with friends as it is in a good central location and the food is excellent for the prices you pay. For a quick lunch, a favourite of mine would be one of the paninis, superb value at €6.95. There is an extremely extensive menu varying from light lunches to full meals, all competitively priced. I have never had any issue whatsoever with the staff and generally find them to be friendly and attentive. I have also eaten here at evening time, and have enjoyed it very much. Amicus is a prime restaurant for casual dining and good food at an excellent price. I will be back time and time again.
