What is the organelle where cellular respiration takes place?

Cellular respiration is the multi-step process that creates energy from nutrients and food molecules. It begins in the cytoplasm of the cell, with the mitochondria functioning as the main organelle where the rest of the process continues and finishes. During respiration, glycolysis occurs in the cytoplasm of the cell.
