This is the type of café where you order at the counter and they bring the food out. While the selection is rather small, it was delicious and great for vegetarians. The service was excellent and the dessert (chocolate brownie) was amazing. Highly recommend this place for the atmosphere, food, and service!

Lovely Cafe with plenty of seating and absolutely spotless. The food was presented excellently and it became apparent rather quickly that this was going to be a fantastic meal. It was one of those occasions when the first taste was so exquisite that you couldn't wait to try everything else on the plate. Although the menu is simple, the fact that everything was freshly made on the premises that very morning is a big plus! I had an Italian meat salad Chiabatta with pesto and the fresh crispness of the bread along with the finest ingredients and perfect seasoning made this meal a winner. It was garnished with a few tomatoes and crisps, very neatly assembled, along with zingy & flavorsome rocket leaves drizzled with a fresh vinaigrette. The star of the dish though was the homemade coleslaw and was the best I have ever had. In friendly conversation with the owners (husband & wife) I found that he makes a batch of coleslaw every morning and it only lasts a day so there are no presevatives and that he picked up the recipe when he worked as a chef (I should have guessed based on the presentation of the food alone). His wife told us that she is up early in the morning baking all the homemade cakes so we took a few slices of each for the road. As the coleslaw was so nice we asked for a portion to take away which they duly obliged even though it meant that another fresh batch was most likely needed to be made up before the afternoon was out! I know its a simple menu and that this is just a cafe but when good fresh ingredients are put together by people who care and are extremely qualified then the results are amazing. I could not recommend this place highly enough.

Lovely cafe. It was a pleasure dining in Kilkee and meeting these owners. A must try when visiting the lovely town of Kilkee. The cafe drinks were fabulous and so were the homemade desserts.

Tiny place, simple menu, fresh food, friendly service...what more can you ask for? The panini bread was so fresh and the portion size was just right for lunch. Charming little store front. Worth stopping and after you eat walk down to the water front a few blocks away...adorable!

On a day trip to Kilkee, we dropped into O'Shea's.
Had an early morning scone & Tea..
One of the best scones you'll eat.

As a result, we returned for lunch.
We had 2 excellent toasted ciabattas with tea.
Result: Lovely cafe, great food and engaging owners.
Highly recommended.
