Great Cafe on the High Street in kilkenny - not sure what people mean about unfriendly staff, the staff are great here. The coffee is excellent and the food is all handmade and gorgeous. Would recommend it for lunch or coffee... or tea!

This is a lovely little Cafe and after stopping here a couple of times it is easy to see why it's so popular. Efficient friendly staff take your order quickly upon arriving and before too long you are enjoying some wonderful food and excellent coffee....More

This is a cosy coffee shop on high street. Get a window seat, or an outdoor table and enjoy some people watching with your coffee. The food is good and well priced and a good spot for a small bite.

We sat down to have a nice break and drink but when the stern faced (actually somewhat scary) waitress asked for our orders, I changed my mind. I asked for an elderflower drink and she looked at me as if I were speaking another language...More

The Ground Floor cafe on the High Street in Kilkenny is a gem for soups, sambos and coffee. Staff are very pleasant and remember their regulars. The soups are beautiful and sambos are made as you wait. Big healthy portions in a lovely, friendly atmosphere....More

The staff was really rude and looked anoyed all the time. I nevertheless ordered a toasted sandwich which was okay. The toilets were dirty and didn't look like they have been cleaned lately.

Cappuccino was quite OK. Carrot cake was nice, but its delicate taste was drowned by too sweet icing. Nice environment was in contrast with not-so-nice toilets.

Horrible espresso, it was basically a short American coffee. But the almond & raspberry cake was good though.
