“Integrity in everything they do.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2014 via mobile

Major addition to Kinsale ... Stopped bye after work on Tuesday and even though Chef was closing after long day he went back into kitchen and prepped a wonderful dish ( Lamb Curry ) to take out...even wrapping freshly chopped veg ...and rice separately. Michelin star style taste and quality.

“Excellent food ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2014 via mobile

Had lunch here today with two friends and can't say enough good things about it .we only wanted something light and two of us had their homemade sausage rolls and salad delicious!!!!!! The other girl had a homemade scone and loved it as it came with jam and cream. Before leaving we decided to treat ourselves to dessert pavlova and a rhubarb gateaux both of which were gorgeous . Def somewhere to try. Staff couldn't have been nicer and prices very reasonable.

“Tasty homemade food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2014

I had probably one of the nicest sandwiches ever in this little cafe in Kinsale. I highly recommend the house relish and West Cork cheddar as part of a sandwich selection as it is delicious. They even give you little homemade crisps on the side! Dessert was the same as anywhere else but I have to complement the cafe on its use of homemade bread and excellent service. A really nice place to go for a casual, relaxed lunch.

“fantastic for lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2014

My husband had fish and chips and I went for the fish salad with brown soda and hummus. Both meals were absolutely delicious. Everything is home-made and you can tell when you eat it. Nice vibe in the place, decent prices and friendly service. I will be back the next time I'm in Kinsale.
