We stopped there of a quick lunch on the road. Good soup, good choice of tasty sandwiches, good cakes (which seems to be a common and pleasurable habit in Ireland !). Nice service, fair prices, lovely decoration.

All home made or made from scratch dishes. My wife and I had soup and then split a sandwich so we could have room for the desserts. A VERY good decision as the sandwich is very generous.

We had wanted to go to Sol Bistro but it is closed Monday and stopped in the Blackberry Cafe for a light lunch. The tomato basil soup was quite nice and the chicken soup was also very fresh-tasting. Bread seemed newly-baked. Lovely desserts. Worth a visit.

Food is absolutely amazing my teenagers love going in for lunch. Unfortunately the service and staff are appalling. On our most recent visit we watched staff argue with the owner Jackie. Our waitress messed up our order completely, but we were starving so just ate.

When we did get seated and our coffee and cake arrived they were super, good coffee and super cake. Service was very good and there was lots of... More

Stopped on the way to Kilkenny after night ferry, had to wait for it to open 9:30am but it was worth it, breakfast was delicious and a great pot of tea. Service wasn't overly friendly (for Ireland!) but pleasant. A must stop if you're passing through, also on the 'Kilkenny food trail' which is well worth following!!

We found the Blackberry Cafe by accident and stopped in for lunch. The cafe itself was a nice, cozy, "feels like home" little restaurant which served up some great lunch for two hungry tourists. Of course, the display of delicious looking snacks and desserts wasn't lost on us either and they didn't disappoint. We felt like we got a taste... More

We were staying near Thomastown and fancied a coffee and a small bite to eat. We saw the Blackberry Café and thought that we'd give it a go. Good decision. Lovely home made cakes and sandwiches. Quiches too!

Nice small location for coffee, soup and snack. Not suitable for larger meals. Nice homemade cakes. Popular with locals.
