A small unassuming cafe just off of the main drag just minutes from the castle this place serves great coffee and lovely cakes. There is often a queue but the quirky decor and lovely friendly service is worth the wait.

If I'm ever showing any friends around Kilkenny. A visit to Cafe La Coco is a must. I can highly recommend the spiced chai latte, which are served in quirky large mugs. It's a small quaint cafe, so be prepared that there may be no seats available. Best kept secret in kilkenny. Try the mache green tea latte, it's amazing!

We stopped by Cafe La Coco for lunch today and it was great. The decor is really cool and the food was beautiful. We both had salads and they are a great size serving and very filling. The coffee is Lavazza which is a bonus. It is right in the centre of Kilkenny. They also do takeaway incase you want... More

This is a small cafe just up Lower Patrick Street. The interior is fabulous and quirky and spotlessly clean. We had 2 coffees and 2 cakes which came to E11.00 which wasn't bad. This is a lovely cafe to stop off in as you wander around the city.

Food was less than average. Waste of calories and money! Orange juice wasn't fresh, brownie dry and pancake was terrible!

Just had a delicious breakfast here. The banana and blueberry pancakes were divine. Also tried some of the brown scone and granola too,so tasty. Loved the decor and the vintage cutlery. The inside is small but intimate,perfect for a relaxing Saturday morning breakfast!

Had just arrived in Kilkenny and was looking for a spot of lunch. This lovely cafe was the perfect spot. We had a wrap and a crepe and both were very good. Coffee good too. Cakes looked delicious and the cafe although small was spotless and service was excellent.

The breakfast was delicious - pancakes with blueberry and banana & bacon pancakes. We were sat outside chatting .... they apologised when they brought the food. Apparently we were waiting too long ??? I didn't think we were & I am a tough customer! We ordered 2 more lattes (amazing... u make them yourself!) And they offered them complimentary. Lovely...
