Treat. Yo. Self.
Ballincollig’s newest café is not just the coolest spot in town to grab a decent coffee, it’s also home to one of the tastiest menus in Cork.
Good for the Soul Cafe opened on Time Square last week and the reviews are in; it’s outstanding.
Their menu (covered in old Dandy and Beano comics, natch) is designed to leave customers feeling ‘energised, nourished, caffeinated and happy’.
Avocado fans are well catered for (order the ‘Av Some Avo’ -mashed avocado on sourdough toast with crumbled feta cheese, freshly chopped chilli and lime (a pocket-friendly €6.90).
Then there’s the house Soul Stacks; corn fritters served with smashed avocado, spiced tomato relish and coriander creme fraiche, topped with two poached eggs (€7.90)…
Oh, and did we mention the Brekkie Burrito?
At €6.90, this festival of scrambled egg, house made beans, crispy bacon, Clonakilty black pudding and grated cheddar is guaranteed to keep you going all day.
If you’re popping in before or after the gym, there’s a crunchy nut granola on offer.
Lunch options include Soul Pastry Rolls served with a pair of fresh salads, a Reuben sandwich, falafel pita pockets and a Gubbeen cheese and ham toastie.
Coffee is by Roasted Brown Coffee in Co.Wicklow with organic cow’s milk, almond milk and coconut milk available daily.
There’s also a healing Turmeric Latte with cinnamon, ginger and honey and a range of protein-packed smoothies to choose from.
And if you’re in need of spoiling you can get your hands on an decadent Ó Conaill’s hot chocolate there too.
Good for the Soul Café opens Monday to Friday, 8am to 4pm for now. Expect a weekend schedule to kick in soon.
If ever there was a case for ordering a three-course breakfast or brunch, this is it.
