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

I'm so glad we had stumbles upon this bakery. They were making all the pastries and savories that am for the day. Supper fresh and you can tell they were made with love. It's great to have a fresh bakery in your neighborhood, wish I had this at home.

The sandwiches here are amazing! Made to order on gorgeous batch bread and only €4. Cakes look lovely too and the staff are really friendly and helpful. Only downside is that it's really small so the queuing system can be a bit messy and hectic

A lovely little bakery that sells a large selection of fresh bread and cakes that are made onsite. They also do a good selection of fresh coffee. I had a Latte and it was excellent. You can sit in if you like. It wasn't expensive either.

I went in to grab a sandwich for lunch. Simple tomato bread with butter, chicken, bacon and cheese but somehow with only 3 people in the store they managed to produce a sandwich with White bread, mayo, chicken, bacon and lettuce. Very disappointed to get back to work and find this was the sandwich waiting for me. I advise anyone... More
