The Bakery at Fallon and Byrne
Well technically Fallon and Byrne is more a food emporium than a bakery but they have an onsite bakery with a team of pastry chefs and bakers who make gorgeous breads and pastries every day. You can’t miss the beautiful display with all kinds of bread on the left-hand side, the moment you enter Fallon and Byrne. They have so many to choose from: baguettes, focaccia, brioche, sourdough breads, seaweed bread… As well as traditional French baked goods such as croissants, pains au chocolat, not to forget the pretty cakes. It’s carb heaven!

Unfortunately Arun Bakery does not have a retail shop but you can find their breads in many different locations across Dublin. Czech master baker Vlad Rannis and his team are based in North King Street, Dublin 7 but if you want to buy their stuff head over to the fantastic Honest 2 Goodness market every Saturday in Glasnevin. Arun Bakery specialises in sourdough breads and if you want one you need to be quick and arrive early at the market. You can also find their breads in Fresh in Smithfield and Grand Canal Square if you’re based in the city.

There aren’t many cafes in Dublin that make their own bread for their sandwiches but Camerino is an exception. The lovely Caryna sells mostly cakes in Camerino but she also bakes the most delicious Challah bread rolls onsite. Challah is a traditional Jewish bread, it’s a little sweet like brioche and Caryna makes a particularly good one that she uses for her sandwiches. A must-try! If you ever feel like learning how to make bread, Caryna also holds small classes from time to time.
Camerino, 158 Capel Street, Dublin
