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.

Liberty Grill

32 Washington St - Centre, Cork

Vegan options for brunch:

Liberty Grill is a super vegan friendly restaurant located in the city center. I tried it for dinner a few months ago and was pleasantly surprised with the nice atmosphere and amazing service and attention to detail from the staff.

* It seems that they have vegan french toast, but I'm not completely sure as I didn't try it myself and it is not included as a vegan option in their online menu. I'll update this post as soon as I get it confirmed.

This completely vegan café has become really popular in Cork.
