Rattlebag Café

This attractive cafe in Carlow Town is pretty enough to make you stop the car when passing, and an ideal place to drop into for a snack - beautiful home baking for example - and coffee, or maybe something more substantial. It has a friendly atmosphere and is very popular with the local community.

Specialities include a hot duck wrap with hoi sin sauce (which invariably attracts special praise), beef stroganoff, chicken and broccoli bake - and tasty light meals such as beef on a toasted bap with horseradish and caramelised onion.

Seats 36 (outdoors, 4); children welcome (high chair). Open Mon-Sat, 9am-5pm; closed Sun. Closed Easter, 25-26 Dec, 1 Jan. MasterCard, Visa, Laser. Directions: On main Dublin-Waterford Road abbreviations
