What a wonderful find! We stumbled across Boscos on a miserably wet day. A sense of calm and tranquility descended as we enjoyed the excellent coffee and browsed the very interesting bookshelves. There's lots going on in this little spot and the food offering is real and honest. Such a relief from the blandness of so many of Kilkenny's main street cafes. Thanks for creating this space.

Amazing food and coffee and great gigs! Tucked away upstairs in the theatre, the atmosphere is so relaxing and lovely. I had an Halloumi Panino which was absolutely delicious. The best thing about this place, though is the great music, swing dancing, events, private dinners. It's got it all!

As planned, and trusting the Trip Advisor listings for vegetarian restaurants in town, we drove directly here after our transatlantic flight landed in Dublin. We were tired and still had a way to go after lunch and simply hoped for a bit of a breather and rejuvenation. Bosco's was just the ticket. Slightly away from the touristy bits of Kilkenny and with easy public parking nearby, we couldn't have been more pleased.

It's a small cozy place, very low key and welcoming. No clattering, no hype. The soup of the day was excellent and we shared a grilled cheese. The coffee, as mentioned by other readers, helped to get us back on our feet. We rested, relaxed and left refreshed.
