♥ Coffee in Dublin//One: The Cake Cafe

The Cake Cafe

The Cake Cafe, in the eco-friendly Daintree building, is slightly off the beaten track.  First find the Daintree paper shop on Camden Street, walk through the shop and exit by the rear door into a bamboo fringed alleyway, when you emerge you will see The Cake Café.

The decor is eclectic; bunting strung across the ceiling, pretty mismatched crockery and a sample of the Dublin pink willow-pattern plate which the The Cake Café commissioned and now sell hanging on the wall.

The cakes are sublime.  There are savoury items on the menu but I have never sampled any of them.  I recommend the afternoon tea.  It’s billed as tea/coffee and mini-cakes. It turns up as a selection of small slices of most of the cakes on the menu.  Way too much for one person – definitely for sharing.  If you have something to celebrate or  are feeling slightly decadent try the afternoon tea with a Prosecco cocktail.   Maire Antoinette would approve!

As well as the cakes I love the quirky mosaics in the courtyard.

Is there a café you keep going back to for coffee and cake?
