As a child of the 80s, Black Forest Gateau is my favourite birthday cake, even thought its a classic its very difficult to find an exemplary BFG in most bakeries. Well Mannings certainly delivers! I've had the BFG for 2 birthdays from here and it...is delicious, moist and just the right amount of kirsch. They are always perfectly decorated, and they keep well. I've had some dry, disappointing versions that use grapes (??) instead of cherries from other "traditional" bakeries. Keep it up Manning's!More

I've called them asking if they still had cakes for collection ( whole ones) and they confirmed that they had it , then I made my way to pick it up knowing that they close @ 18pm , I got there by 17:45 and one...of the girls had a really rude attitude shouting that they're closed . I can understand you start getting ready to close at that time but they customer service is horrible.More

Bought some pastries here and the food was delicious!!!! I gave a 4 star review because to get Ute delicious food, you have to be barked at by rude staff. :/

I must admit I love Manning’s. Great food cakes and coffee. Always good quality and friendly staff. Only thing that’s changed is they are only doing takeaway but I still enjoyed. Hope they full reopen soon.

Considering coffee isn’t their speciality this was a pleasant surprise. Delicious flat white with just the right amount of milk - Outstanding

I ordered a cake online for my wife’s birthday a day before the celebration. The shop advised me that the delivery will be 9am till 5pm. I called the shop at 04:45pm to advise that the cake has not been delivered yet. They told me...that they will call the delivery guy to ask the status only to come back to me saying that the cake was dropped at house no. 10 which is far away from our house. So we walked to the the said house but the family living in there said they did not receive any cake. What a VERY VERY POOR SERVICE! The cake was supposed to be a surprise but it turned out to be a disappointment. Definitely will not recommend them. Waste of time and money.More

Ordered the heart shape strawberry and cream cake. Was delicious but didn't look as nice as the pictures. Maybe your staff should check the picture before they decorate it. The strawberries were just pushed into the cake with the stalks still on. And the little...heart sprinkles were no were to be seen. First pic is the ad second pic was what i received not as pretty. Also asked for happy 70 th birthday mam to be put on it that was missing along with the Kiki and heart sprinkles.More

I ordered a birthday cake and some other bakery items, from Canada, for my daughter's birthday, to be delivered to her as a surprise, as she is studying in Dublin. The online order system was simple to use and was seamless. I ordered and paid...for everything 2 wks before her BD and they delivered everything the morning of her birthday! The order was correct and my daughter was definitely surprised and sooo happy. Photos of the BD cake and the scones and muffins looked delicious and my daughter confirmed that everything tasted fantastic! The scones were fresh, with a nice crunch to the crust but soft on the inside and the red velvet cake was moist and delicious and the cream cheese icing was perfection. Thank you for making it so easy to order online, so that anyone can order from anywhere in the world and have your delicious baking delivered anywhere in Dublin. Thank you for getting the order right and for delivering on schedule. Thank you for the delicious baked goods that my daughter thoroughly enjoyed on her BD. The prices were very reasonable and I will definitely order from you again in the future.More
