The original ‘Spirit Store’ sign is on the shop front and keeping up the tradition that goes back to when the people of Clonmel and beyond enjoyed a drink in the snug on fair days.
Once inside, the temptation to settle down in the bright, welcoming Cafe to enjoy breakfast, lunch, a coffee and cake break or a slice of the famous Hickey’s Brack is simply irresistible. It’s the longest-established eatery in town, and there’s nowhere better in Clonmel to enjoy a delicious meal made from the finest locally-sourced ingredients and products.
These days it’s run by Nuala Hickey, who started working there straight from school. Over the past two decades, Nuala has built on its century-old heritage to create a unique, stylish café. It’s a wonderful morning stop-off, with the smiling waitresses offering a delicious breakfast menu with everything from the traditional full Irish to creamy eggs Benedict with baked ham, poached or scrambled eggs, or a crispy bacon salad with Inch House black pudding and a poached egg. Healthy options include seasonal fruit and Greek yoghurt, Flahavan’s porridge with cinnamon, or croissants, muffins and scones with Crossogue Preserves. Our Lunchtime menu is freshly cooked, changes daily with vegetarian and fish options. Our ingredients are locally sourced with seasonal adjustments to give you the best dining experience every time.
