Cork’s Newest Cafe Now Open at St. Peter’s Cork
Cork’s newest cafe is housed in our quirky visitor centre located in one of Cork’s oldest standing buildings with the original structure dating back to the 1270’s. What looks like an ancient medieval church from the street opens into a contemporary open plan space housing local art and heritage exhibitions that change on a regular basis throughout the year.
The newly launched café serves locally roasted coffee beans by expert roasters Badger & Dodo as well as cakes and treats from Cork’s own Hassetts Bakery. Our cafe and visitor centre is open 6 days a week with the entire building closed on Mondays. North Main Street is going through a resurgence in recent years with many new businesses starting up and we at St. Peter’s Cork are doing our best to contribute to developing this historic quarter of the city. We hope that the new café will increase the overall footfall of the area by drawing visitors from far and near to enjoy both quality local culture and coffee.
The café itself is located on the ground floor with ample space for hanging out with friends and plenty of room for parents and their buggies. In the coming weeks we will be introducing family friendly mornings to create a space where parents can relax while their kids play on a soft mat space. The team at St. Peter’s Cork encourage parents to bring their children along for these mornings that will run on Wednesdays from 9am to 11am and Saturday from 10am to 11am to begin with. Keep an eye here and on our active social media pages for more information.
