Located in the old Cork library, The Bookshelf South Mall was the first Bookshelf to open its doors in 2012. Sit in and appreciate the local and quirky artwork, grab a seat by the window and look out at the buzzing South Mall or simply order to takeaway – our style is relaxed, open and friendly. Serving speciality coffee from The Barn, freshly baked scones, breakfast, weekend brunch, lunch and sweet treats, come for a coffee with a good book or a brunch date with your friends or anything in between!
Please note, we do not take bookings for our weekend brunch services. Tables are allocated on a first come, first served basis when all guests from a party are present.
