Handy outlet in the centre of Kilkenny city for lunch. The €10 daily special is lovely. Quick service and ideal for a place to go if on lunch from work. Very close to the castle also.

The staff is really nice ! The food is good, and it's not too much expensive. The environment is really comfortable.

Had morning coffee and scones in this Cafe. Absolutely delicious. Staff members very friendly. Table service offered. Central location. In need of a facelift but otherwise recommended.

Ate here this morning. Not impressed. Understaffed and the service was desperate. Waited for ages on food. The lady that was making sandwiches at the counter doesn't like her job, she was giving out about everything (pretty loudly) the entire time we were there. Very...More

This place is great. I had the BEST breakfast (that's the name of it in the menu, not my evaluation, though it was nice). It came with coffee/tea, and they made me an americano instead of drip coffee (I didn't ask them to, I think...More
