Guide Review - Party Cake - Polish Bakery and Cafe - 158 Capel Street
Party Cake is a Polish bakery and cafÃ© located at 158 Capel Street in Dublin's inner city - not the nicest neighbourhood, but central and safe enough to be considered by shoppers and tourists alike. And with Party Cake there is a reason to head here - they are serving maybe the best cakes in Dublin, if you go in for that filling, sweet, rich Polish taste. I do, And will again ...
What can you expect? A whole cornucopia of Polish cakes, sold at decent prices and handmade locally. Good coffee and tea too, but the cakes are the definite selling point of the smallish cafÃ© (you will be lucky to find a seat on busier days).
The selection of cakes changes, so do look and pick something you fancy on the day. Staff will help you to choose. And know what the cakes are made of (helpful for allergy sufferers). But beware: Most cakes are filling indeed, so start with a small slice, then work your way up through the menu.
Any drawbacks? No, if you are looking to take home some cakes. Yes, if you want to sit down: The cafÃ© simply is too small to host more than a few visitors and it can get cramped. Which, I am sad to say, accounts for teh four stars only - the cakes themselves would deserve full marks.
