We stopped by this cafe because it was very crowded on a Sunday afternoon. I had the lamb stew and it was very good. My husband had the breakfast and loved it. Our waitress was very sweet and gave us some recommendations on places not to be missed while visiting Kilkenny. And we went to them all! We spoke to the owner in the way out and he was very nice.

Kilkenny has more places to eat then you can poke a stick at. Of those places, Cafe 22 stands out as a testament to old world Kilkenny, and new world dining and necessities.

We were warmly greeted, sat and seen to, our meals (Traditional Irish lamb Stew and the beef lasagne) were prepared fresh, delivered warm, and were more tasty than I thought possible.

The owner came over to see if everything was to our standard, and spoke to us about the history of our dishes, how they were traditionally prepared, and how closely he stuck to that recipe.

Great quality, great charm, cozy dining room, friendly staff, delicious food, and amazing charm all rolled up into a great place to grab a decent bite to eat.

Don't make the mistake of settling for Pub food in the thousands (seemingly) of beer halls, when Cafe 22 can serve you a meal you will be glad you didn't miss.

Don't just make Kilkenny castle a must visit. Be sure to stop and refill at Cafe 22. You really won't regret it!

We had delicious lunch of excellent chowder and also a coriander carrot soup. The Chai latte is excellent. And they share their wifi. Very nice welcoming cafe/restaurant. One can get breakfast til noon. It is right in the centre and walking distance to many of the sights, Kilkenny castle and Kilkenny Design Shops.

Very nice decor and excellent location.

Smell of chips in the restaurant was unpleasant. We ordered coffee and biscuit cakes but the staff forgot about the coffee. While they were apologetic I don't think we will be returning here any time soon.
