Best for Cheap eats - Expert review of Cornucopia
If you're overworked, feeling unhealthy, under the weather, or you've had a late night - Cornucopia is the best tonic you can give yourself. You're sure to walk out the door feeling a little more energised, a little healthier, and more charged to face the day, or evening, ahead. Why? The array of vegetarian dishes is loaded with the most nutritious herbs, spices and fresh produce - just reading the menu is a detoxifying experience. Your taste buds will thank you, for the combination of tasty, often exotic, flavours, and you can indulge in relatively guilt-free desserts and cakes, or wine, too. One of Dublin's enduring, and best, foodie locations. Recently expanded.
Great deals, offering at least two soups, five main courses, ten salads and a variety of desserts that change each day, apart from the old reliables such as warm berry oat crumble and vegan chocolate cake, yum. Think parsnip, carrot, yellow split pea & rosemary OR Tomato, cannellini bean & savoy cabbage soup, with each main accompanied by two salads prices from 10.95 - 12.95 euros. Roast pumpkin, baby spinach, chickpeas, puy lentils and tofu make a daily appearance as do an omelette, quiche and curry of the day. Indecisive people beware.
I find it hard to pass the broccoli, lentil and sweet potato sambar (Sri Lankan curry) served with organic brown rice, with a fresh mediterranean, chickpea and feta cheese salad, and carrot salad with mustard seeds & lemon, on the side. Warm granola berry crumble, with creme fraiche on the side, for dessert. Coffee. Happy.
Generally busy, with a queue at meal times, but a bedly needed recent refurb and expansion, warmly welcomed by local die hard fans, means you're sure of a table now, or at least a window space, but the wee toilets downstairs are still a cram. It's all worth it.
Self-service, take a tray and load it up. Staff are helpful and fresh-faced, good advertising for the guilt-free fare.
Just off Grafton Street, Wicklow Street is a lively shopping street. Central to most tourist sights.
MId range. Lunch deals range from 3.50euros for soup up to 13euros for a sizeable main with two salads. Salads from 4.50euros-10euros. The mains are generous, especially with two salads, expect large portions.
