We had a coffee in this restaurant and the place is spotless. Staff are friendly and smiley. The great with this place is literally in front of the magnificent view of Carlow College.

I have eaten here a number of times over the last couple of years and I have never had a bad experience, it is the best place in Carlow. Staff are friendly and the food is of a high quality at a reasonable price. It is a little hidden away if you don't know where you are going but worth... More

Extremely rude man working at the till. We went in a group of 20 and got cold chips, we didn't even complain about this! The man that was working at the till made a mistake and over charged one woman, when this was said to him he got very defensive and very rude. We will never be eating there again.

The food is always good and the soups and specials are always interesting and tasty! They also do a really good coffee which can be hard to find sometimes! Great spot whether it's... More

The second time I had a ceaser salad and it was very over priced for what I actually got, although it was nice. The third time... More

I Googled somewhere to bring the kids for lunch and decided to try Lennons. Once we arrived, I wasn't so sure they would like the menu but we went ahead. The service was lovely -attentive and understanding of what kids like. We all enjoyed our lunch. Kids had pasta with a really tasty tomato sauce and sides of grated cheddar... More
