We were there as a family hoping for a good quality lunch according to the cafe's menu. Not only did we wait long for our meal but when it finally arrived it had all characteristics of microwave reheated food. A real disappointment. Then we took an attempt to order a dessert. The waitress kept us so long before appearing at... More

Quaint place to eat in Kilkenny. Service was great. Food was good, with large portions, and reasonable prices. Music was nostalgic and added to the atmosphere. Hard and soft drinks served with full bar service, if you desire. Good location.

Overpriced cafe, which lures you in with attractive looking deli counter. Don't be fooled! Generally grimy with a large selection of cuckoo clocks??!! Sandwich itself was quite nice, but presentation was poor. No dressing on the salad plus it was covered with tinned sweetcorn. The coffee was nice.

Split over many levels including a covered outdoor area, it doesnt matter where you sit, there is always something quirky on the walls or shelves nearby. the food service is fairly quick and efficient and was good value for money.

My wife and I went here last Friday as excellent cafe next door was full. Ordered 2 soups of the day - Vegetable soup. We've never had such terrible soup. It was water. Kept adding salt to try to get a flavour. How could soup be so bad? Surely the chef or owner must have tasted it. Looks like they... More

This place had lots of good food! We thoroughly enjoyed our meal while watching a curling math on the television downstairs.

We should really have paid more attention to the name when we popped in to this place. From the street the view through the window shows a promising food display that makes it look like a delicatessan but when you are shown through to the dining area in the rear of the premises it is like stepping back in time....

The Nostalgia Cafe is a delight. We sat outside in our very comfortable wicker table and chairs. The astro turf grass was a nice touch. Patio heaters meant we were ambient. I had a cappachino and scone with jam and butter plus cream. It was lovely. She had hot chocolate and a delicious chocolate muffin with cream. Our waitress was... More
