Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I popped in for a coffee in the morning. Then I realized they are serving breakfast as well. Came there for a scrambled eggs - ordered with smoked Salmon and toasts. See what I received 🤣 better food is served in hospital! This is not...a scrambled eggs but just crisp! They even didn’t provide Lemon to the salmon (lady tried to give me a quasi-lemon juice’ she used for feeding sandwiches 🤣🤣 Maybe they are specializing in cakes (don’t know as I’m not a fun of sweets) but definitely they are far away from preparing eggs!More

I tried to order a birthday cake for my sister this Tuesday for Thursday morning however there was a problem with the billing address on the website so I went to the shop the next day. I wanted to order a 10’’ red velvet cake....When I got to the shop I was told they couldn’t do 10 inch but they could do 6 or 8 which was absolutely fine. When I arrived the next morning I was greeted again by the two helpful lovely young girls one who I think was called Katie were serving me, however out of nowhere whilst trying to find the docket for my order a “manager” of the shop (who I later found out is a manager at another mannings not the one I was at, she was there covering for the day) aggressively got involved in the conversation. I was trying to explain that the day before I had come in asking for a 10 inch to try rehash to the young girl what my order was since she couldn’t find the docket she wrote the order on and this manager started shouting at me that they don’t have it and when I tried explaining that I know they don’t she just started shouting at these poor girls about where my docket was everything was well under control there was no need for her to get involved. I felt awful for the two girls as I could clearly see this tyrant of a manager had been treating them like this the whole shift and a lot of surrounding customers were visibly uncomfortable with it. I find it upsetting that these two young girls had way more professionalism and customer friendly attitudes. They 100% deserve a pay rise and this tyrant manager needs to be addressed! As someone who works in customer service I understand the stress and pressure of a busy peak in the day, however I wouldn’t be happy if I didn’t address the situation considering how clear it was that these girls were being treated as badly as I had in my one experience their whole shift. No way to work! I hope I’ve helped make your business work environment a tiny bit better:). Incident occurred in mannings the square tallaght.More

This bakery makes the best red velvet cake and the best chocolate cakes as well as many other sweet treats. They have been around for a long time and they are consistently great. Go early though as they sell out fast daily. Otherwise, order online...to guarantee you get what you want.More

Went in with a friend for a coffee break. Few in line to be served and service was slow. In fact customer behind me got served first. Staff not very attentive. Coffee and a scone €6.85. Very expensive nothing special and won’t be back.

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

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.

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
