Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is a great spot for a casual lunch. Very good selection of tasty and very appealing looking food. Staff are very good. We loved the decor and all the interesting bits to look at. Desserts were amazing and we got some to takeaway. The...shop attached is great for a look around too.More

Have been to Kelly’s a few times as I live in Wexford. The food looks lovely but I am always disappointed with the taste. This time I had a tandoori wrap and my daughter had a vegetable roulade. My wrap was dry with hard lumps...of chicken coated in spices, I had to get mayonnaise to be able to swallow it. The veggie roulade, according to my daughter was “bland and weird”. It cost nearly €25 with a coffee and a sparkling water. I will not be back.More

Returned to Kelly's Cafe this week after two very disappointing visits, and what a difference. My last visit had left me a Very Disappointed Diabetic when I was served charcoal instead of my own Sourdough bread toasted. This time what can I say absolutely lovely,...my friends and myself left with smiles on our faces after one of the best breakfasts ever.More

Went to Kelly's Cafe to meet school friends and as I'm a diabetic brought my own bread for toasting. When my breakfast was delivered the toast was black and inedible. Absolutely disgusted that a chef would serve this, meaning all I had for breakfast was...two pieces of bacon and a fried egg. The waitress was absolutely horrified abt the toast and I was offered a cup of tea in place of my toast. Will not be going again as this is the second time I've had a problem. No third chances for Kelly's Cafe from meMore

I stopped at Kellys, which has been good in the past. I waited and waited and waited in the queue at the hot food section with people walking round me. Finally I asked was I at the wrong section and was told "Wait for x"....Finally I ordered. I was hungry and probably overordered. I ordered a bagel with spicy mexicanpork and a side plate of 2 salads. I did not realise that the bagel came with a salad, the one I was avoiding as it had dried fruit in it (cranberries). I sat outside. My tea when it came was cold and horrible and the bagel was so over toasted it was chewy and you could have broken your teeth on it The pork was tastless dry and chewy. terre was no sign of any sauce ? spicy. The lettuce in the overtoasted bagel was brown and the rest wilted. The salads on the other plate were completely tasteless, appeared to have a bit of vegetable oil on them and no seasoning.I gave the bagel back on the grounds of inedible and was offered a refund " but you have to go in"., I took a ham and cheese baguette . I said no toasting please and wrap it to go. That baguette was horrible, overpowering dollop of relish, chewy bready bread and plastic cheese. I ate a few bites and took half of it and the salad with me. I think btw the baguette was cheaper than the inedible bagel. I got to my friends and gave her the half baguette and salad. She pronounced both awful, she said bread bready and overpowering relish. Avoid this place. I bought a takeaway load of bread and takeaway pate. Both were good. Its whatever they are doing in the kitchenMore

Always loved coming here but recently found the service bordering on rude. Particularly poor today not a please, thank you in or an even acknowledgement when ordering/paying. An awful shame as food and location is lovely.

Lovely atmosphere. I highly recommend Kelly’sMore

The food is quite expensive for what you get, and seating area has hard surface and roof so very noisy, extremely loud. How we were treated by some of the people working there was very poor. Not many choices in that part of town but...would go to McDonald’s over Kelly’s next time as at least there you are treated well.More

Dining here is always a pleasure so it was greatly missed during Covid lockdown. While their takeout meals are delicious and a good substitute they lacked the greater experience of "dining in" at the cafe and maybe having a nice main followed by a yummy...desert and a good coffee. Its great to returning to norma.More
