The Quay Co-op
The Quay Co-op sits on the banks of the River Lee, just south of the island that holds the Cork city centre. As well as being the city’s largest health food store, the Sullivan’s Quay shop is home to a much-loved restaurant that serves an extensive vegetarian and vegan menu all week long, from soups and spelt bread through to vegetarian shepherd’s pie, nutburgers and gluten-free vegan desserts. The dishes here are generous and reasonably priced, ensuring they’ll keep you full all day. The Quay Co-op also has its own Coffee Dock café, consisting of a well-stocked deli counter and an organic coffee stand (naturally, vegan milks are available).
