If you want to start your day in a healthy way go to Dukes and grab an açaí bowl. And don't think you'll be hungry after that, their vegan açaí bowls are, not only delicious and beautiful, they are super filling.

Vegan options for breakfast:
  • spelt scone
  • chocolate muffins
  • breakfast bap
  • tofu 
  • savory pastry

You can’t go wrong with Quay Coop as almost everything is vegan. They don’t have fancy avocado toast, just simple and tasty options that are always good. I love their spelt scone, that is vegan, but you can choose something savory among their subs, baps and pastries.

Bright Side

23a Washington Street, Centre, Cork

Vegan Mushroom toastie Bright Side Cork

This charming cafe that has recently taken over Pinkmoon, retains the cozy vibes from its predecessor, as well as the pet-friendly policy. Their offering includes a tasty mushroom sandwich and the delicious oaties from Pure Raw. Definitely a bright spot in Cork. Only opened Mon-Fri until lunch.

Located in Douglas Shopping Court you’ll find this cafe with many vegan options both sweet and savory. The atmosphere is lovely and the staff very friendly (but keep an eye as they sometimes are not very attentive and forget or mix up the orders).

Naturally Nourished Cafe drink Vegan peanut butter toast Naturally Nourished Cafe

Naturally Nourished Cafe vegan porridge

Naturally Nourished Café has a few vegan options and a beautiful atmosphere. The place in Penrose Wharf is really nice and quiet. Only negative point is they open just Mon-Fri.

Vegan options for brunch:
  • Rotisserie Sweet Potato Toast 

A classic for brunch in Cork has added a vegan option to their menu, the Rotisserie Sweet Potato Toast with vegan feta cheeze, avocado, tomato and rocket salad. Some of their toast -with mushrooms, with baked beans or with peanut butter and banana- seem easy to veganize.
