Dukes Coffee Company
The powerful personality of Dukes Coffee Company can be seen in the fact that whilst their two Cork destinations are so distinctly different – Carey’s Lane is an archetype of the old Cork city, whilst City Gate Plaza is glass-and-steel modernity par excellence – the two cafés are nevertheless soul mates. The soul mates are unified by a terrific service aesthetic, and unified by a smart, modern food offer that manages to always have just exactly what you feel like eating. Indeed, virtually every Dukes dish has become a mainstay classic over the last 15 years – the smoked salmon scrambled eggs with potato cake; the chicken and bacon ciabatta; the chorizo and tomato flatbread. It’s no small feat to be able to deliver such moreish, pleasingly savoury food with such precision and consistency, but Dukes show a truly regal sprezzatura with every cup and every dish they send out, proving two hearts can beat as one.
