I have a couple of places I love to dine out in Cork. I love Scoozis for breakfast. Their gluten free waffles are to die for. You can get them with fruit and maple syrup or chocolate and cream. I get the fruit option but I must try the chocolate sometime. They are yummy and so good you will thank me. I love going to Scoozis during Christmas they do the best Christmas pudding. If you are looking for lunch or dinner I would suggest you order their pizza or burgers. Like I said I always go in for breakfast when I can. And there desserts look amazing too. The service is always the best in Scoozis. And they are on 2-5 Winthrop Street right around the corner from Brown Thomas.
Market Lane has a touch of sophistication with their decor. Its a walk to 4 & 5 Oliver Plunkett Street but it’s worth it. And thankfully their food is amazing too. I love their salads. They do a deal for students or anyone who needs to watch how much they spend. At €12 you get a soup and half sandwich combination with a coffee/tea option and a chocolate pot dessert. You can also get a salad bowl for €13.50 (its gluten, dairy and sugar free) with either a freshly squeezed orange juice or a cup of soup. So that’s value. They have thought of everything. I am always grateful for their chocolate pots. They are so cute and taste divine. Just going in there is worth it the atmosphere is always vibrant. And you can see the chefs cooking from your seat. I always go in there and I introduced my family to the place and now they love it. They always used to go in for the panna cotta. I think it was some berry variety and when they took it off the menu my family went mad! lol They wanted them to bring it back. So bring the panna cotta back please. I think what’s good is they do change their menu (accept for my family) so you don’t see the same old thing on there.
Eco’s are in Douglas and Glanmire. So they are not in the city centre. I love how when you walk into the restaurant you see a dessert bar where you can see the delicious goodies. The Oreo cheesecake and the Snickers dessert are so indulgent you must try. They really have a great menu offering curries, fish, pasta, burgers. We always go in for a curry it’s like a staple dish there. But I have also gotten fish in there. It’s a cosy restaurant in Douglas but I feel like that adds to the experience. It is always packed and busy. It’s a very popular place to go. In fact just as I am writing this my sister brought me back a takeaway chicken satay from Eco’s that I enjoyed. And if you haven’t been you need to go.
Jacques do great sandwiches. And they have lovely homemade coleslaw which I fondly remember. They do excellent coffee. I have had the chocolate caramel salt pie. It’s so indulgent. They offer a dinner menu too. You can get a €24 two course dinner most of the week. Win/win for everybody.
I have not been to Amicus in a while. But the stand out dish for me is their fajitas that comes in chicken, vegetarian and beef. They come in a towering stand and they are a great dinner to be had. But look at their menu and you will see they have a lot to offer. Not just for adults but kids too. They have two locations. One in Cork centre and the other in Douglas.
So are you visiting Cork soon, need somewhere to book for yes I am going to say it Christmas! Or maybe your just eating out this week. Try one of these places and tell them Deyns World sent you!
