This little cafe was delightful and I wish that I could have ordered a meal but we really just wanted and had tea and the most delicious raspberry and white chocolate scones. Melt in your mouth stuff! Staff were helpful and very friendly. Well done.

Stopped into Jo’s cafe after a recommendation from a local shop and wasn’t disappointed. We had the lemon drizzle cake and a pot of tea for 2. The lemon cake was delicious. The other food on display looked very tempting too. Would recommend Jo’s :)

My title says it all. I love going to Kinsale. Nice little town, however, our main attraction are the scones and coffee at Jo's. We've pretty well have tried all the scone flavors. Easily the best in Ireland. My only complaint is that is very...More
