My boyfriend and I stopped in here one afternoon for tea and scones. OMG so delicious. Just pure scones, cream, jam and tea. It was a perfect respite on a day spent busy touring. I highly recommend!

Dropped into Cafe Nostalgia with a friend whilst visiting Kilkenny. Has a cup of coffee and a scone which was very good. Noticed other customers having a full meal. Although the restaurant was doing brisk business the staff were friendly and helpful. Recommended
