Having moved to Carlow mid pandemic and being a new blow in, I was made to feel very welcome here. The food is homemade and fresh. The staff are pleasant, warm and welcoming and the owner, who often mans the till or cleans the tables,...is always eager for a chat and a catch up. Since moving, I have tried most of the local eateries on both ends of the scale and all in between and none have made me feel as welcome as the staff here, they really cannot do enough for you. If you want a pretentious, overpriced menu in generic drab turn of the millennium decor and served on a slate, then this isn’t the place for you. If on the other hand you want an honest to goodness, hearty meal prepared with fresh, locally sourced ingredients and served with an (honest and appreciative) smile, in a clean and functional setting then this is exactly where you want to be! Is this the most modern or visually impressive place to go? No. But it’s certainly top of my list, for staff who appreciate the business, are happy to see you and make time for you, for fresh, “old fashioned” café food and fresh baked items. The part of me that longs for the simplicity of life in 90’s feels very much at home here. Somewhere I will continue to return to for as long as I can. PS: all take away coffees are served in compostable cups for an added bonus.More

We have been visiting the Country Kitchen Restaurant in Carlow Town (in the Haddens Center) for over 20 yrs and always look forward to the friendly welcome from Joan and staff. The food is home cooked and served up with a smile. Service is quick...and prices reasonable. You can't go wrong with the Sheperd's Pie, Lasagna or any of the daily specials. And if you just want coffee and a slice of cake then check out their Lemon Meringue Pie! Highly recommend if you are passing through Carlow Town.More

I have been going to Country Kitchen for years. Really tasty food and the staff are lovely and friendly. Great buzz to the place. You can see why it has been in business for so long! Try the lasagna or shephards pie with nice salads...or the homemade scones and cakes. Yummy! Very family friendly.More

Been coming here on and off over the last few years, but more recently 3 times weekly after gym for light lunch. Joan and the staff are lovely to deal with. Polite, friendly and ready to please. Hubby had the roast dinner before Xmas while...I had my usual (low fat option). The premises/tables are constantly been cleaned. Would recommend here for homemade quick brunch/lunch.More
