Who We Are

I always knew I wanted to base myself in Lismore as it is such a beautiful and vibrant town. My grandmother and my mother are great bakers and so in turn, have passed on many of these skills to me and baking is my passion! In 2017 we won WLR Listeners ‘Best Café in Waterford’. The Vault Café has also been nominated for many awards in 2019 and 2020 with the Irish Restaurant Awards.

Our Food

We pride ourselves in providing quality homemade produce, from our fabulous bespoke cakes to our specially designed slimming menu. We enjoy creating new and tasty dishes while keeping our menu simple.

We serve breakfast, lunch and dinner, along with a click and collect takeaway menu. We have a wide selection of soft drinks, teas, coffee and sandwiches.

Check out our menu below or order online.

The Vault Couture

The Vault Couture was set up as a sister business to the café, highlighting all of our beautiful homemade and hand-crafted elements, which are for event hire and special occasions. One of our most popular items for occasions is our Bespoke Grazing Tables, which instantly become the vocal point of any room or setting. They are an exclusive product to The Vault Couture and are as impressive visually, as they are for taste. We also have our Vintage Horsebox for hire, where you can choose from the Gold, Silver or Bronze Package and allow us to make your event all the more special with such a wonderful feast served to you from a classic styled horsebox.

Located in the picturesque and historic townland of Lismore, Co.Waterford, The Vault Cafe is only a short stroll to some of the most beutiful scenery our county has to offer. Lismore Castle and the Blackwater are on our doorstep not to mention the Lismore Heritage Centre.

The building in which The Vault Café is located used to be the old Munster Leinster Bank and so still has the unique feature of the old bank vault, hence where the name comes from. The building was unoccupied for almost two decades as it used to be the County Council Offices prior to this. Now it holds immense character with the bank vault as its main feature within our café.
