Food is our passion but people are our business


We encourage and motivate our teams to deliver creativity in service which will reflect the constantly evolving requirements of our customers and clients.
At The Q Cafe Company, we value our staff above all else. We take time to nurture them, to help them feel empowered and part of our Q Family. In her acceptance speech for CEO Of The Year, Breda Quigley said: ‘without every single member in our team I would be nothing.’

In West Cork, we buy potatoes from a farm that our restaurant directly overlooks.

Whilst in Tipperary, we buy products that our clients grows.

As an Irish business, we have made it our mission to support local enterprises for more than 20 years. We buy locally across the island of Ireland in the provision of quality food services to you.
We have a beating local network of suppliers we go into the community and source local. This is how we form a community within our restaurants.
