“Perfect coffee house in Kilkenny”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2014

We often visit Kilkenny for weekends away and I'm delighted that we found this coffee house! Between the great coffee, delicious food options and cosy and warm atmosphere, you'll be glad you tried it! The staff are brilliant and really friendly - a true gem in Kilkenny!!

“Perfect Afternoon Tea”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2013

We had visited the Kilkenny Cathedral mid-September and climbed the tower, so were very much in need of refreshments. The staff at the Cathedral suggested this tea-shop, and I can vouch for their recommendation. We were warmly welcomed and the afternoon tea we enjoyed was lovely, with fresh sponge cake and irish soda bread scones at a reasonable price. It is easy to miss this little gem because it is tucked between other businesses, and the frontage appears to be quite narrow. Once inside some steps took us up to a larger seating area.
