Popped in here twice during our stay in Kenmore and thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Cakes looked yummy but generosity of portion of salad sadly left no space for pud. Very pleasant little garden.

“Books and food, is there a better pastime?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013

Olga's Friday fiver menu is always delicious made with the best local ingredients, as are the daily menus. The location of this little cafe bar is a little off the beaten track but worth locating to taste the delicious food. The restaurant is a former bookshop whose stock partially remains so you can dip in to the books or buy them if one meets your fancy. A great place for a cup of coffee and a slice of cake too.
The ambience is friendly and relaxed, typical of most top class veggie restaurants. When you have had your fill you can pop over to the Co-op and buy its wonderful produce including if it is in stock Olga's wonderful Lemon Curd and to die for Beara Blue and other fantastic locally made cheese.

“Fabulous food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2013

A great vegetarian co-operative restaurant in Kenmare. The food is lovely and a great variety to be had...gorgeous soups, sandwiches and salads....but the "Ultimo" lunch would be what I would recommend - literally everything in it...eggs, avocados, peppers, tomatoes on flat bread. Coffee is good and the cherry brownie finishes it off nicely! Always interesting to browse the books while you are waiting for lunch and if it is sunny try the lovely little back garden...a space away from it all.
