Have to stop for scones and tea especially when they're fresh out of the oven! I was in Kinsale in 2013, but the time slot is not available.

Noticed this place because of the artistic lamp outside of the coffee shop, hanging from the roof, which is like an old cycle. really enjoyed the coffee and snack. Overall another good place in Kinsale town.

What a wonderful place to chill out on a lazy Sunday afternoon. One of the nicest toasted sandwiches that I have had in a long time, made with artisan sourdough bread. Coffee latte was very tasty. Staff were friendly and welcoming. We will definitely go back again.

Ok you can tell by the title I am delighted with this find. For people on a coeliac diet it is very rare to find a cafe with homemade gluten free cakes and here they have a selection. The staff are very friendly and the atmosphere is homely. I would highly recommend it.
