We were on a short trip to Kilkenny for the day and were doing some shopping when we came across the Nostalgia Cafe. It's on the high street and easy to find.

It looked like a small family run cafe and was extremely friendly and welcoming.

It was a cold day so our order for four people consisted of two sandwiches with soup and two toasted sandwiches (Cheese & Onion / Chicken & Mayo). The toasted sandwiches came with a side salad and some delicious coleslaw which had celery in. This seemed odd but was totally delicious. My partner said she would never now make coleslaw without putting some in. The soups were of a perfect portion and came out steaming hot, just what you need on a cold day.

All four of us commented on the quality and quantity of the portions as well as the decor and surroundings in the seated area of the cafe. We will be coming back to Ireland this year and will make a point of popping into the Nostalgia Cafe again.

Cafe Nostalgia is probably the loveliest eating place in Kilkenny - perfect for breakfast or a relaxed afternoon tea.
Go upstairs and admire all the amazing memorabilia they have :)

This is a cute place in Kilkenny. There are definitely some pros and cons to this place.

PROS:

- Super-friendly staff. You will see friendliness and smiles all around.
- Wonderful food at good prices. Try the garlic bread. The fish and chips are tasty and not too greasy.
- If you stop in with Paddywagon tours, you can get a free water or similar beverage.
- You won't be disappointed by your visit.

CONS:

- The space is tight and cramped. There is not a lot of room, but they have made attempts upstairs to increase the space.
- I feel bad that the employees have to bring the food out to the tables, especially the ones upstairs. It's a lot of work.
- They need more help to get the orders out more quickly, but the small space really doesn't allow for this. They barely have room for cups and plates on the shelves. With the quality of the food and staff, this place is really deserving of a bigger location. It's unfortunate that they are stuck where they are.

Staff lovely and friendly and welcoming. The food on display didnt tempt me so I settled for a coffee and a sweet treat, whihc were fine. Nice outdoor area but when I was there it was too cold to sit outside.
