Cake Café

Cake Café Review

When the former head of the Slow Food Dublin movement opens a café, expectations are going to be high. Michelle Darmody's dreamy little Cake Café fulfills every one of them. As it is in a plant-filled courtyard at the back of the restored Daintree building, try to snag an outside table if the weather is decent. Then chill out and chow down on simple savory and sweet delights, all made with a loving, homey touch. Local, organic, and seasonal are the words to live by here and the terrine of Cashel Blue cheese with hazelnut is a typically delicious lunch dish. Save room for the delicate tarts and moist sugar-dusted sponges. This is also the perfect summer spot for a cheeky daytime glass of prosecco with a few nibbles in the courtyard. And don't forget their fun cookery classes: they are the talk of the town.
