Lovely cafe. Funky interior. Absolutely delicious breakfast. Had the veggie fry up. The grilled tomatoes with goats cheese and pesto, and mushrooms were the highlight! Great coffee. Friendly service. The non-vegetarians in my group also loved their meals. A must see while travelling around this beautiful part of Ireland. Can't wait for my next trip!

We have visited Diva Cafe and Coffee House two times now during our stay in Kinsale. It is but a short drive to the southeast on R600 and is well worth the trip. It is set in the small village of Ballinspittle which finds mostly locals dining there. It has an all around great breakfast and lunch menu; if you... More

My wife had an "Elvis" breakfast that she found suprisingly good.... More

There should be more places like this cafe. There is a passion for food and serving good coffee. Clearly very popular and understandably so. Across the road there is the bakery that supplies the cafe and the constant shuttle between the two speaks volumes for the freshness and the demand.

My mother and I took a once in a lifetime trip to Ireland this October, our home base for most of the trip being in Kinsale, and every single morning we went to DIVA in Ballinspittle for breakfast. We could not get enough of the FRESH melt in your mouth pastries, and the happy welcoming faces of the staff! Not... More

Had the tuxedo cupcakes and they are to die for. I can't recommend them enough and they have them in the bakery across the way from time to time to takeaway. Lunch is really good too, love their sweet potato chips with garlic aioli.
