“The Kilkenny cats are loving the Rafter’s Gastro Pub, which serves food throughout the day from breakfast to dinner. With a beer garden, they’ve got grub coming from their sizzling stone and a reputation as a local go-to spot for live music and sports events. If you get the chance, check out their ‘legendary’ brunch.”
