SImple , Friendly and good food ! loved it !
the welcome was friendly, food was brought to our table while from the first eye of the cafe you wouldnt expect that. The waitress was very friendly ! certainly will go back.

“One of the best sandwiches I have ever had.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2013

I ate lunch here at the weekend whilst on a weekend break with my boyfriend & I have to say that the only reason that we even noticed the place was because there were vintage bikes & a vintage car outside. The interesting gimmicks used to get us in were a good indication of what was to come. A fresh, home made beautiful lunch. No skimping on the fillings & Tayto crisps on the side for €5. The place itself is so quaint & looks like it's been there for years & years. Highly recommend this place for a light lunch!

“A true irish gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

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.

“A place with spirit and fantastic food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2013

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 :)
