“Sooo slow!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012 via mobile

I have been here on numerous occasions as it is close to work and work colleagues have picked it for tea. On each visit I have vowed not to go back, but have decided to give it one more chance. No more. Very bad value in comparison to other places nearby, actually asked one slice or two each time I order toast, and exceptionally slow service.

“SPACIOUS, GOOD QUALITY FOOD AT GOOD PRICES”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

Have to say often walked past this cafe. It used to be a house and the front door has never inticed me in before. But with some large pictures outside and a tasty menu on display in i hopped with my friend. We had only intended on having a cup of tea. We ended up having lunch. It was nice, reasonably priced and if your that neck of the woods worth popping into. The owner who works there is friendly as well of the other staff members who had great smiles.

“Highly recommend. Friendly, delicious, relaxing....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

Lovely cafe in Kilkenny. My husband and I stopped off here for a quick bite while passing through Kilkenny. It has a good location beside the Market Cross shopping centre in the centre of town. The food and coffee were superb. I had the delicious breakfast wrap while my husband tried the celeriac and roasted pepper soup, both were simply divine. The salads are fresh and unusual, as are the daily specials. If you've any room left for a bun you won't be dissappointed. The selection of food is about as good as I've come across in a cafe, and I go to a lot. The staff were very friendly and there was plenty of seating, not many free seats though! Will definately return on my next trip to Kilkenny. Keep up the good work.
