We think you can’t possible have a nice cup of coffee without indulging in something sweet to go with it. Here is our list of the best cafes and coffee shops in Dublin where you can also treat yourself to something sweet.

The Woollen Mills

The Woollen Mills is a great little spot near the Ha’penny bridge, it’s a eating house with a restaurant and café at the same time, which means you can pretty much eat at any time of the day. This is a firm favourite in terms of cakes, which are made onsite and are absolutely out of this world. From their Oreo tart with caramelised peanuts to their lemon, raspberry and ricotta cake, everything they make is gorgeous! For the hungriest of people they also have a ‘doughnut of the day’, which looks amazing. In terms of coffee they have baristas serving you Badger and Dodo beans, roasted in Fermoy, Co. Cork.

Camerino Bakery

This super cute bakery with the friendliest staff is located on Capel Street. Besides serving fantastic Roasted Brown coffee they also make delicious cakes. They only have a few stools in the bakery so it’s mostly take away. Their chocolate raspberry cheesecake brownie won Gold at the Irish food awards and their selection of cakes includes carrot cake, lemon drizzle, cookies, baked cheesecakes and more. Make sure to try their scones, they’re some of the best you’ll find in Dublin!Camerino Bakery, 158 Capel Street, Dublin 1

Fallon and Byrne

The beautiful food emporium that is Fallon and Byrne is a great place for coffee and cakes. There is a nice seating area in the corner of the food hall and a large selection of hot drinks served by friendly baristas. The display of cakes is always inviting and impossible to resist. From freshly baked croissants to muffins, they have tartlets, cupcakes, cakes and the selection changes from time to time. A great spot for all the foodies in need of a caffeine and sugar fix!

Avoca is always a winner in terms of treats and a firm favourite for a cuppa. Head down to their basement level on Suffolk Street where the display is always filled with the most gorgeous banana breads, lemon slices and carrots cakes just to name a few. They have a small seating area downstairs but if you really want to treat yourself go up to their top floor café which is beautiful and perfect for a little break.
