"These guys KNOW what they’re talking about when it comes to coffee. As specialty small-batch coffee roasters and with more than 20 years in the caffeine game,Cork Coffee Roasters branched out into the cafe business in 2008 and added a second location in 2015. Which means actually now we have 11, not 10 cafes on our Top Ten list…."
"Cork Coffee Roasters has to be given bonus points for hand-roasting their own coffees locally, using traditional methods. This reliable Bridge Street cafe should probably be the number one pick for true coffee lovers, who will appreciate their dedication to using only the best beans in all of their unique blends."
"The city’s original coffee specialists serving up their beautifully home roasted Rebel Blend. This roast is on the dark side of medium and is extremely popular with Corkonians looking for a much needed caffeine hit to get them through the day."

"Camden Fort Meagher is internationally recognized as being “One of the finest remaining examples of a classical Coastal Artillery Fort in the world”. For almost 400 years the fort played a key role as a strong strategic position for the defense of Ireland, the west coast of England and Wales. The fort is a prime location to watch ships passing through Cork Harbour, the second-largest natural harbour in the world."
"Described as “one of the finest remaining examples of a classical coastal artillery fort in the world,” Camden Fort Meagher dates back to 1550. Forming part of the harbour’s fortification system, it expanded gradually over the centuries. You can now wander through the deserted, windowless ramparts and around its craggy stone walls for an eerie insight into the history of Cork’s maritime defence."
"143V is not in the city center, you’ll have to walk for 10-15 minutes towards the train station to find it, but it worths a visit. The brunch menu offers toasts, porridge, chia pudding, tofu scramble, pancakes… The breakfast bagel (see picture above) is the best option if you’re in the mood for Irish breakfast. Do you need a boost of vitamins?"
"Having already won the hearts of Dubliners with their outlets on Dame Street and in Rathmines, Umi Falafel opened their first branch outside the capital earlier this year, on Academy Street in Cork. Their handmade falafel, cooked in low-fat rapeseed oil, is the centrepiece of the menu – you can get it in a sandwich of Palestinian pocket bread or a wrap, or you can try some falafel ‘bites’, either plain or stuffed with mozzarella cheese. These are best accompanied by something from their tempting mezze menu, or one of an array of healthy, freshly prepared salads."
"With branches in both Dublin and Belfast, if you’re looking for an authentic falafel experience then look no further than Umi Falafel. Umi is Arabic for “mother” and thus gives an indication of the care put into each order placed in the restaurant. Falafels are freshly made before your eyes and are made from a combination of 15 healthy and natural ingredients."
"Cafe Gusto is another spot that’s said to dish out some of the best brunch Cork has to offer. It was established in 1999 and was once the famous O’Brien coffee shop that operated since 1941. The creative force behind the cafe, Marianne, had travelled extensively around the world before returning to Cork in1998."
