Fresh, healthy, vegan Cornucopia is widely respected by Dublin's local foodie network.

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.

Food and drink

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. 

Recommended dishes

 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. 

Ambience

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. 

Service

Self-service, take a tray and load it up. Staff are helpful and fresh-faced, good advertising for the guilt-free fare. 

Location

 Just off Grafton Street, Wicklow Street is a lively shopping street. Central to most tourist sights. 

Price advice

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.
