We visited as this cafe looked quirky and inviting but never again. Chairs and tables are dirty, toilet floor wet and dirty and the food was below par. Soup was tasteless with cheap supermarket brown bread. Pizza was small, processed and burnt. Scones were nice....More

We had a quick lunch here yesterday and it was really yummy. I had the vegetable soup with toast. It needed some salt and pepper, but was good. My husband had the chicken sandwich with bacon and chips. He loved it. I also had a...More

Sure, this place might be okay for a quick coffee...but then again there are tons of places in Kilkenny that would be even cheaper and better. For some reason I ordered the cod and chips... absolutely terrible, just a greasy soggy pile of food on...More
