Small cafe/restaurant located to the rear of the health food shop. Good selection on the menu and service is very good. Food is very nice but prices are outrageously priced.

I visited Cafe Nutshell twice in one day it was that good. Mid morning for a gorgeous 'Paleo Brownie' and a great coffee, followed by lunch of the best Broccoli, Cheddar & Bacon Soup I've tasted in ages. The staff were clearly enthusiastic about their work, all were charming and unhurried, despite being busy. I love this place, they really... More

Having visited the town a few times we had not found anywhere nice to eat, until today. The staff were friendly and helpful and the food was clearly all home cooked, offering 3 choices of soup. The comments on other listings are in my opinion irrelevant, this is is not pretending to be a gastronomic restaurant, it is good inventive... More

Undoubtedly the best cafe in New Ross, but to be fair the bar is pretty low. The food is generally quite tasty, although the menu badly needs to be updated- the panini era has been and gone I'm afraid! I also question how in vogue quiches and pasta salads are- not very! It charges the kind of prices one might... More

Run by the oddest people in the world. Owners and staff can be cold or unwelcoming somehow. Food is always fab though. Best eatery around.

I took shelter here from the rain, but I think I would rather be soaked, next time. One of the joys of going to a cafe is being able to sit near a window and watch life pass by. Unfortunately, you can't do this in the Nutshell, because there's a health/organic food shop at the front of the cafe. So... More

Had brunch here yesterday with my wife, food is always excellent, staff very friendly, a bit pricy but the quality of the food is always A1. I visit it every time I want something to eat when I'm in New Ross.

The fish pie was described on the menu as 'luxury' fish pie accompanied by potato wedges. From this, I incorrectly assumed that there would not be more potatoes on the pie itself. The pie, in fact, was 75% mashed potato with an unacceptable amount of, what I would describe as, fish sauce. I had been told that it contained crab,... More
