Mini Breakfast and a Jumbo breakfast - plates full and also included toast, tea and a cofee ,,, very generous portions, tasty, well-cooked and just €17.
Pretty sure you won't find better than that anywhere else in Kilkenny.
Definitely worth a visit.
The staff, though all very young are friendly, helpful and efficient.

Try it on! Take the stairs on the right hand side near the entry of the librery. The food is really really good and not expensive. The smoothies are also fabulous!

The staff are very friendly and welcoming here.

The menu is very good - you will find more choice elsewhere but, there is definitely something for everyone on their menu.

The prices are probably the best for what is definitely an over-priced city.

We had a full fry that comes with tea/coffee or toast and a fruit scone with a cappuccino.

Definitely the nicest coffee around. The fry cannot be faulted either - clean, tasty, good quality products.

The furniture is very dated but looking beyond that, an excellent choice of restaurant and will be back to try their lunch menu.

We were staying in Kilkenny in rooms above a pub that did not include breakfast. We got up in the morning and started walking around Kilkenny looking for breakfast. Quite by accident, we happened on to this property, which is a small café above a bookstore.

The breakfast choices were wonderful, the staff was friendly and helpful, and everyone was delighted with their breakfast. If you needed something to read, the problem could quickly be solved by a trip down stairs! Great place!

Open during normal business hours six days a week.
