Right on the main street and providing breakfast for guests of the Old Bank Hotel above, the cafe is busy from early morning. Not only do they know how to do great coffee, their food is equally as good and the service matches both.

We just arrived in Kinsale and went hunting for a light lunch. The cafe is charming and serves excellent fresh and imaginative sandwiches and salads. The service was friendly and helpful.

Excellent staff, service and food. If there was any complaint, it was that there was to much food. I had Black Sole and it was enough for two. Good choice of wine and great ambience.
