Eoin Cluskey’s temple to bread on Pearse Street opened in a storm of publicity in September 2018, and we wonder what we ever did for bread in the city centre before they arrived. The cruffins are the stuff of legend, and weekly specials like banana split and tiramisu croissants keep customers coming back week after week. An interesting (mostly bread-based) lunch menu and sourdough pizzas and wine on Friday nights.

"...a beautiful operation, stone-milling flour, fermenting and baking their own delicious sourdough breads and dangerously huge morning buns, which are a pillowy mix of yeasted dough rolled with cinnamon sugar."

"I'm addicted to their mushrooms on toast (€10.50), served on Shackelton 7 Seed toast, with polenta, thyme, ketchup, blue cheese, house pesto and topped with a fried egg."

"The star of the show is a warm-from-the-oven sausage roll of porky deliciousness, the pastry flaky, buttery... just gorgeous. A prosciutto and cheese croissant is pretty damn fine also..."
