Serving the people of cork — and celebs as well! — for 30 years

The Crawford Gallery Café, opened by Myrtle Allen and her daughter Fern, is celebrating a milestone.

THE Crawford Gallery Café is set to celebrate 30 years in business on September 15. Ballymaloe matriarch and culinary icon Myrtle Allen and her daughter Fern opened the café in 1986, situated in the same building as the Crawford Art Gallery at 1 Emmet Place in the heart of Cork city.

A touch of Spring about the scene in the Crawford Gallery Café  when I called there last Thursday. Light streaming through the high windows, daffodils on the tables, smiles on the welcoming faces. And a tempting menu to study.

The January menu is outstanding actually, regular favourites such as Steak and Chips but also quite a few different items such as the Roast Marrow Bone.
