''' Although it’s on a quiet street and a little out of the way, what a great destination their delightful patisserie and little café has turned out to be. Definitely more River Café than Corner Café, the wittily named cakes and pastries (aka “Quirky and Unusual Desserts”), are simply stellar and, while simple, the savoury food - including deeply flavoured soups, and sandwiches made with gorgeous breads from carefully selected craft bakeries - is delicious.Superb coffee too - the best in Kilkenny they claim, and they could be right.

Small but mighty, Cakeface is a little treasure.
