I absolutely love the Gourmet Store. I have to get my fix at least once a week :) Irene and Padraig are a class act. It was one of the things I missed about Kilkenny when I lived away.

Went in for tea and pear/ almond scone -excellent! sitting at window seat and met two very nice tourists. The chat I had with the staff was worth more than what I paid for the tea and scone.

I was pressed for time and thought to get a quick take-away sandwich and this place looked as good as any. Well, it is better than any! The sandwich menu is basic to unique and unbelievably fresh and tasty. The café is small, but efficiently run by a very friendly staff. The Gourmet Store seemed to be as popular with... More

The cafe is very small but friendly staff will look after arrangements. Short menu, but good stuff, well presented in a timely manner. Prices are very keen and the gourmet shop adds another interest to the visit.

We stopped in for a quick lunch shortly after arriving in Kilkenny for an afternoon of sightseeing. The staff were friendly and it was fun looking around the specialty food shop while we waited for our food. The seats at the front of the restaurant are great for people watching as well!

My wife and I stopped in for a bowl of vegetable soup and brown bread while shopping along High Street. Homemade, hot and warmed us. Brown bread was delicious too. Inexpensive, quick bite to eat. Would return.

The cafe is located on the high street which makes it a perfect spot to have a bite to eat. There are window seats so you can watch the town come to life. The coffee is particularly lovely. I had the Tuscany and it satisfied. I love that they serve crisps with their paninis.

Good prices for the size of sandwich you get. I ordered a plain sandwich with just meat and it seemed a little light on the meat. If I would have known I would have probably asked for extra.

I was recently in the area for business and stopped by The Gourmet Store for a quick lunch. The selections were very good so it took me some time to choose the chicken salad sandwich. it was fantastic with a unique flavor that set it apart from other sandwiches.

Love the Paninis especially the Milano! I go in every week for the home made pate and mixed olives! My favourite place in Kilkenny to buy food and have a coffee and chocolate square!
