“Nice cafe with good food and coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

The owner is so polite and welcoming. My boyfriend and I had coffee, scones and a sandwich (freshly made) and it was great value for money (approx. €10). It is a nice place to sit and watch the people passing by. I would recommend this place.

“Best cappuccino we had in Ireland!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013 via mobile

This small homely coffee shop at the end of Main Street in Kinsale, Ireland, is run by one man - Billy, who knows how to make the perfect cappuccino. Rich thick creamy foam and lovely flavours. We visited Espresso every day of our trip and enjoyed sitting by "our" window watching the passers by and the locals popping in and out. Billy also has a small menu of breakfast paninis, lunch items and cakes. Worth a stop!
