THE CAKE CAFE: THE CUTEST OF DUBLIN’S HIDDEN TREASURES
Kelly lives on Camden Street. One morning last week we found ourselves breakfast-less before college and decided to head a few doors down to visit The Cake Cafe – a little cafe hidden behind the stationary shop of the Daintree building.
Since I’m not a fan of coffee, I asked the waitress how decadent the “Extra rich” hot chocolate genuinely was. She hesitated. I knew then it was for me.
Regardless of being there for breakfast, I needed to try it. Yes, it was amazing. No, I regret nothing.
Our tea and hot chocolate came in china teacups (as expected) accompanied by a big old-fashioned teapot. We watched the rain through the cafe glass front and contemplated trying the many different cakes on display behind the counter. The Cake Cafe seems like a place where a person could go in all kinds of vintage dresses and not look one bit out of place. You could go there in tweed and read newspapers all day and feel right at home. In fact, I recommend it.
Visiting the Cake Cafe made me incredibly jealous of Kelly’s new apartment on Camden Street. She’s a stone stroke from so many quirky little shops and cafes. Maybe when I’m home from Paris I’ll check out a new home in town. Oh the possibilities…
