Where to find vegan sweet treats in Cork

Sweet treats

Cork is such a small city and when it comes to sugar cravings, you may think that there are not many choices, specially for vegan options. Well I made my own research and was pleasantly surprised... Continue to read to see what you can find.


31 Popes Quay, Shandon, Cork

This recently opened cafe on the riverside run by a lovely Croatian couple has a variety of vegan treats, including sweet ones. Homemade baklavas, poppy seed cake, coconut roll and lemon square are the ones I’ve tried -and enjoyed- so far.

Grand Parade, Centre, Cork

Here you’ll find a few oaties and power balls from Pure Raw (the cashew oatie is to die for) and recently they’ve started to sell Leamhain ice cream sandwiches in two different flavours.

Priory Coffee has a few spots, but my favourite is this one at the beginning of MacCurtain St. It has a cozy atmosphere and nice view from the seats on the window. They have a few vegan options to pair with your coffee: carrot cake and banana and chocolate cake.

17 French Church Street, Centre, Cork

This popular donuts chain has opened a shop in French Church St. and yes, they have vegan donuts! For now there are only 2 flavours: biscoff and chocolate cookie (aka Oreo). I’m really looking forward to seeing more vegan options here.

Jane, the owner of Wicked Wholesome, has a small shop in Douglas. It's not very handy, but trust me when I tell you that her food is really good. I'm totally in love with her scones!

Very nice vegan and raw desserts that can be found in a few places in Cork. I've seen them at Alternative Bread, in The English Market, and at Loving Salads.



Unit 2 English Market, Princes St, Cork

Even if I see their stall many times, it wasn’t until last month that I tried some of their sweets. The orange and chocolate brownie was lovely, but it’s not always available.

One of the best vegan desserts you can have in Cork it's this chocolate parfait from The River Club. It's quite pricey, but worth it for a special treat once in a while.
