I popped in here recently with my partner and toddler to grab a quick coffee and sandwich. Nobody said "hello", smiled or even acknowledged us as we walked through the cafe and found our own table at the back. The cafe was quiet. 3 other...More

The special was seafood chowder and garlic or brown bread. We choose the brown bread and were very pleased with both the bread and the chowder. The chowder came with a very good salad as well as the chowder. We ate downstairs and did not...More

We visited as this cafe looked quirky and inviting but never again. Chairs and tables are dirty, toilet floor wet and dirty and the food was below par. Soup was tasteless with cheap supermarket brown bread. Pizza was small, processed and burnt. Scones were nice....More

Liked the idea of a heated outdoor area. Ordered two seafood chowders. Not sure why they call them seafood chowders - got a coffee cup size portion of some white mess with a skin on it. Cream was split and the chowder was tasteless. There...More

Nostalgia is tastefully decorated with knickknacks and with a lot of thought. I loved the layout of the cafe - they have memorabilia from their travels I guess with beautiful messages ... The pretty cafe lives upto the pretty Kilkenny town. The food is awwwwesome...More
