“Lovely and relaxing cafe on Kinsale's main street”
Reviewed 4 May 2014 via mobile

We drop in regularly to this café and it never disappoints.
Always a nice choice on the menus with regular updates.
Would recommend it and great to get away from it all too,with plenty of books to brose through as well, if you have the time.

“Friendly, relaxing cafe”
Reviewed 23 April 2014 via mobile

I stumbled across Poet's Corner by accident and unfortunately, on the last day of my stay in Kinsale otherwise I'd have returned! The food was delicious, the atmosphere was relaxing and the staff did everything possible to make sure I enjoyed my lunch. A must for anyone looking for homemade, delicious food, a cut above the rest!

“Credible crumble”
Reviewed 5 April 2014 via mobile

We sought solace from the rain in this cafe cum book exchange. Had we been Polish or Spanish we'd have had plenty of literature to peruse while supping on our 'Be Happy' tea.

Our waitress was both hot and friendly and served us up a savage little apple crumble with jut the right amount of cream on the side for each crumbly bite.

Had a food envy look over some if the sandwiches being brought out. This little plec is worth a stop if you're in the mood for letting the day slip on by...

“Lovely atmosphere - slow service”
Reviewed 11 March 2014

This is a lovely place to stop off for a coffee and cake and the atmosphere is so chilled and relaxing. The staff were very friendly. However we ordered food and were waiting for a long time so if you're in a rush, stick to the coffee.
