It’ll be an essential stop en route to the train station.
Locals and workers on MacCurtain Street and beyond will soon be able to swing by a brand new coffee shop for their caffeine hit.
Boru Coffee is preparing to open next week, occupying a small triangular purpose-built building attached to Clyde House, which received a sympathetic overhaul earlier this year.
The building, positioned on Clyde Cutting, a curved lane that was once a railway line connecting Kent Station to Cork Albert Quay railway station, is being turned into a café by local couple Brian and Jane Mills.

Having developed a passion for business working with various cafés and hotels, Brian and Jane set out to find the perfect location for their very own coffee shop.
It was ideal timing: “We originally were looking at another location and then this popped up in a pivotal location with great footfall.” says Brian.
Once the doors are open, Boru Coffee Shop will be pouring the first steaming cups of java at 7.30am until 5.30pm Monday to Friday, right up until Christmas Eve.
The couple will be introducing weekends in the New Year.
What’s on the menu?
Boru Coffee Shop will serve Soma coffee, with speciality tea supplied by The House of Tea and cakes by Applebee Bakes and Pastries. The fresh scones will come from Pana Beads.
