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.

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.
