The best pastries in the city! Try the brownies they are incredible and HUGE! This place is really affordable too, I always go here when I'm passing through Temple Bar, its right across from the Gaiety School of Acting and 2 mins from TB centre on essex street! Try here for your coffee and bun rather than Starbucks it's way... More

Going here years. A hidden gem. A real live bakery hidden away in Templebar. Great cakes and bread. Always busy. Great to see a business focused on the product rather than the apperence. This place is the perfect antidote to the wannabe hipster bakeries popping up and selling bought in products. A rare beast.

This place is a little hidden in Temple Bar but absolutely amazing! Sausage Rolls, ham and cheese crossant, coffee are cheap and delicious....Best carrot cake I have ever had....We went to other bakeries that were more publicized, but this one was the best, very friendly staff, enjoyed watching the staff make all the great eats!

I call in most days for my lunch. Always get a great reception from the staff always smiling and nothing is too much trouble. The sandwiches are huge with fresh tasty fillings and very reasonable on price. Great bit of banter.

We stopped by totally by chance. We thought about trying some Coddle, but instead had cake to share and mulled wine as it was the lead up to Christmas. Good job the cake was to share, as portion was massive. The girls serving were very friendly and charming.

We were vacationing in Dublin and stopped in one morning for scones and coffee...the staff quickly served the regulars around us and didn't seem to appreciate our slow ordering. Granted, it was a busy weekday with customers dashing in and out. The 4 of us were able to grab a table in the very small shop and enjoy our coffee... More

Officially west of Temple bar this is a wonderful bakery. We were a family of 5 and took advantage of their special cake and sandwich deal to bring a pack lunch with us to Wicklow for a day of hiking. Their homemade bread is so good. Do that instead of the wraps. Large variety of sweets and hearty lunch kept... More
