I love their breakfast baps either from the cafe itself or from their stall at Skibbereen Farmers market. All ingredients for all meals/cakes are local and of super quality. There are a lot of yums offered for celiacs and other special eaters!

No matter what you are in the mood for Kalbos will have something to suit you. Everything they serve is really tasty. The only down side to a visit to Kalbos is having to choose which isn’t easy as everything there is so nice.

I had the sambo with goats cheese instead of brie, and "cream of fennel and orange soup" The sambo was lovely, the soup was yuck. The Ardsallagh goats cheese whispered "refined", "high quality"... while the soup had the consistency of orange juice with bits, the...More

Great ambience. Only 7 tables. Dissent menu, nothing fancy. You can good desserts, salad and warms salads and few main courses. 3 red and 3 white are offered. Reasonably priced. Took some time to get our order.
