One does not like the "foodie" tags added by writers of restaurant critiques e.g. "Artisan". However, in this one instance, it is justified as what you get is actually home-made. This is an unpretentious place which gives you excellent fare at reasonable prices and with the pleasantry associated with Kerry. It is to be thoroughly recommended for a very pleasant... More

The service here is always very good . They serve very nice coffee & for a light lunch it is very reasonable . Seating a little cramped . Coffee & walnut cake is very good .

Visited Truffle Pig for our first stop on our arrival in Kenmare. On our first visit to the cafe we had cheese and crackers and a goats cheese tart fab! For me the most important test was the coffee...great! On our second visit it was my birthday....cake mmmmmm lovely.

Went with a party of six for lunch. Sandwiches were well filled, pies were fantastic. Great value for money. Would recommend it. On the down side space was tight. However it is a good lunch stop.

The owner is... More

I ordered a chicken sandwich on homemade white bread. The chicken was slices of breast meat and was topped with a nice cheddar... More

Arrived for breakfast in pouring ran, friendly welcome, cosy seating area, excellent cooked full Irish breakfast, and poached eggs - best breakfast we had in 5 days. Would strongly recommend and go out of our way to revisit.
