This patisserie is amazing. Pastries and bread are to die for...almost as good as being in France. They have a huge selection of Viennoiserie as well as amazing breads of all flavours

I was wandering the streets of Dublin, looking for the next interesting store to visit, when I walked past this cute bakery. I immediately turned around and went inside. I ordered a mocha, and multi-berry tart to save for later. BEST coffee I've had since my 9 month stay in Europe. The tart was also easily one of the best... More

A really nice fresh croissant with a white hot chocolate . Delicious but the extra charge of 15c for my debit card use loses a mark and tarnished the visit

I contract all around Europe and love to find little places which are warm and friendly and well this is one of the best I have been too. I go back a couple of times everyday and can not wait to return back to Dublin so I can go here for a Coffee and a Fruit Scone. Great Value all... More

I have visited Hansel and Gretel bakery quite a few times. I especially enjoy their freshly baked breads, muffins, scones, and other items. I haven't had a bad experience with the baked goods yet. The only compliant I have is that it's a little pricey so I don't really visit as often as I would like. Also there is not... More

Came here for an apple pie, and for 4.5 € you get a delicious and big one. Staff is nice and I will try their coffee next time, smell was great.

Hansel and Gretel Bakery is heaven! I found myself going in every day as I passed walking back to my hotel from City Centre. The almond-jam cake is perfect for tea time, but it is the chocolate covered shortbread-caramel cookie that is the best. I always had scones and croissants and you can ask for butter and jam to go.... More

I like to start my day with croissants, and a baguette, so was delighted to find one a mere 10 minutes walk from the flat we had rented near Merrion square. The croissants are not quite up to French standards but are nonetheless excellent and I found myself many times at the door at 8 am when they opened. The... More

This place is conveniently located near my office, and if there is a special occassion - this is the spot! I have gotten cakes here a couple of times for various celebrations and they are always delish. Moist, fresh and tasty - the perfect cake! This place has lots of choice and it all looks amazing. Well worth a visit... More

Popped in here for something 'to go'. Very cute shop, lots of choice and very generous sizes. I got an almond croissant (which was the biggest I've ever had!), which was like a bakewell tart hybrid and absolutely delicious! Busy but fast service and reasonably priced too. If ever in the area again, I will definitely be back.
