Cakeface Patisserie, Irishtown, Kilkenny.

Located on the ‘medieval mile’ between St’ Canice’s Cathedral and High St., Our patisserie offers a unique and quirky range of gourmet sambo's on our sourdough baguettes, sweet treats and desserts, all handmade by Laura & Rory.

Choose to eat in, have a treat or take a selection box home. Perfect to take back to work for an afternoon treat.

Some of our Dessert range

Take a selection to friend’s house and pretend you made them (we won’t tell). All our desserts are designed and handmade by Rory or Laura.

Whether you are popping over to friends for afternoon tea or bringing dessert to a dinner, our creations will impress and delight.

Freshly made gourmet Sandwiches

We offer a selection of gourmet sandwiches made from our artisan breads. Where possible we use produce from local suppliers.

We are constantly changing our sandwiches when we find a new artesian supplier.

Our Breads baked daily

If you love bread, as much as we love bread then you’ll love our breads. What we don’t produce ourselves we have source from incredibly talented local bakers.  Flavoursome sourdoughs from Seagull Bakery Tramore and Irish Ale Bread from Arbutus, Cork or snack on a Stromboli for Kilkenny’s own “Spelt Baker’

The Lab

We are constantly developing and improving our range of desserts, pastries and other goodies in our own development Lab.

''' Although it’s on a quiet street and a little out of the way, what a great destination their delightful patisserie and little café has turned out to be. Definitely more River Café than Corner Café, the wittily named cakes and pastries (aka “Quirky and Unusual Desserts”), are simply stellar and, while simple, the savoury food - including deeply flavoured soups, and sandwiches made with gorgeous breads from carefully selected craft bakeries - is delicious.Superb coffee too - the best in Kilkenny they claim, and they could be right.

Small but mighty, Cakeface is a little treasure.
