“Perfect for a light breakfast to take away”
Reviewed 22 July 2013

We popped in here to pick up a couple of bits for a quick breakfast and i am so glad we did. It may not look like much from the outside (or inside for that mater) but the owner is fantastic, very welcoming and gives great service and the food is amazing!

We had a banana muffin the size of a small car, some very good peanut butter and choc chip cookies, all washed down with coffee (free if you also buy food).

There's not much to this place (nowhere to sit and eat) but it certainly left a very happy memory!

“Yummy Yummy Scones!”
Reviewed 9 May 2013

What is it about homemade baking that makes us all feel good. I havent shopped at this bakery but on two occasions someone brought purchased goods to my house when they visited.

Homemade scones - to die for, and delicious Jam too. So if you are having visitors, or friends call over - treat them to these scones. They'll be very happy!

“Wild onion Bakeshop”
Reviewed 15 April 2013

What can I say about these people? They are great! Owners Bob and Ruth run a fantastic American Bakeshop. Brown and White loaves, rye bread, French baguettes, focaccia, olive and sun dried tomato bread, corn bread.
Everything tastes great here 3 types of cookies, homemade fudge, chocolate and walnut brownies.
The American Carrot cake is so good. On Sunday mornings get in early for your fresh cinnamon rolls!
You also can get a good cup of coffee.
For free you get the most interesting banter from Bob, Ruth and Damien (resident Baker)
Just go and enjoy a great experience!!

“A real American Bakeshop gem in Limerick. Worth a visit”
Reviewed 4 April 2013

The Wild Onion is a genuine all American bake shop, a real asset to the food culture of Limerick, run by Bob & Ruth and their trusty crew. Cinnamon Rolls to die for, Rye Bread a real favourite in our house, and fantastic artisan loafs of bread. They focus their baking on different items each day so you're always in for a treat.
