“a delightful discovery on Patrick Street”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

This café is truly a "find." It's right on one of the main streets in Kilkenny so it can be a great place to while away an hour or two and read the paper or people watch. They serve a lot of sweet treats, but I ordered a café mocha that was truly the very best one I've ever tasted (and I've had more than a few!) They serve it in a container that looks more like an ice cream soda glass (not exactly) and I believe they use Ghiradelli chocolate as well as the excellent Lavazza coffee. My husband enjoyed a similar drink,with caramel. The staff is gracious and friendly: we returned a second time on our two day visit because it was so very, very good. Highly recommended!

A really nice coffee shop with a really nice interior, excellent coffee and scones. Well worth a visit for a quiet coffee.

“Awesome sandwiches, great coffee and beautiful design!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

Went into Cafe La Coco for lunch while visiting Kilkenny recently and really enjoyed it. Sandwich and coffee were both delicious and reasonably priced. Loved the design of the place and had a nice feel to it as well! Service was great.. staff didn't mind me asking for extra things on sandwich and being a bit picky. Had a lovely relaxing atmosphere!
