When I moved to Kilkenny years ago and worked in town I often raved about the food here but it's really gone down hill! My husband just picked me up a wrap from here that he ordered from the menu, it was bland and hardly any filling in it. The cheese was the only nice thing. He also got a... More

Working in kilkenny city it's hard to find a place where a nice sandwich is served without waiting 20 minutes in a cafe for it, so I stumbled upon the gourmet store last week and I was thrilled with the great menu, fantastic prices and even better was the lovely food. It was only €5 for a toasted chicken and... More

The gourmet store is a long time favourite of mine and I regularly stop here when I among manic shopping day in Kilkenny City. The store sells the most amazing natural, healthy options for all young and older adults interested in their lifestyles.

Recommended by Smithwick's gift shop girl for a quick lunch. PERFECT. It is a tiny shop with an even tinier narrow space for eating, but the owner is friendly and my Napoli panini with turkey and pesto served warm and crispy was nothing short of magnificent. Also had a yummy soup. They have a wonderful selection of snacks to go... More

I absolutely love the Gourmet Store. I have to get my fix at least once a week :) Irene and Padraig are a class act. It was one of the things I missed about Kilkenny when I lived away.

Went in for tea and pear/ almond scone -excellent! sitting at window seat and met two very nice tourists. The chat I had with the staff was worth more than what I paid for the tea and scone.

I was pressed for time and thought to get a quick take-away sandwich and this place looked as good as any. Well, it is better than any! The sandwich menu is basic to unique and unbelievably fresh and tasty. The café is small, but efficiently run by a very friendly staff. The Gourmet Store seemed to be as popular with... More

The cafe is very small but friendly staff will look after arrangements. Short menu, but good stuff, well presented in a timely manner. Prices are very keen and the gourmet shop adds another interest to the visit.
