A little gem in the heart of Kinsale, you’ll find Ursula Roncken’s appealing all-day café behind a very attractive powder blue frontage with white lettering.
Bright and attractive with a picture window onto Market Street, it’s a together kind of place with polished wood/blue & white tiled floor, modern paintings on cream painted walls and wooden-topped tables with attractive wooden seats - better still, it’s friendly and welcoming, and serves great tasting food.
Menus offer a very nice selection of dishes for both breakfast (eggs Benedict; roasted Portobello mushrooms on toasted muffin with herbed scrambled eggs and roast tomato; sourdough, wholemeal or fruit toast, with preserves and butter) and lunch (crab & avocado salad; smoked chicken Caesar salad; blueberry cheesecake), and the quality and flavour of all dishes is excellent.
Now open in the evening Thursday-Saturday, when the menu includes sociable sharing plates like the Cucina cheese platter and a charcuterie plate with warmed breads, dips & gherkins, while more substantial dishes include a rib-eye steak with classic café de Paris butter and interesting vegetarian choices - such as a roasted beetroot salad with chorizo, green beans, crispy parmesan potatoes, goats cheese & artichoke crouton.
Great service too – friendly, knowledgeable and relaxed.
