Bretzel Bakery

This famous Jewish bakery was established in 1870 and, following a short lapse, its kosher status was re-established in 2000 when the current owner, William Despard, took over. While most famous for their bagels - they're still reckoned to sell the best bagels in Dublin - their range of products is very wide.


William Despard is a keen promoter of 'real bread' and the main speciality at Bretzel is proper handmade bread, made the old-fashioned way and baked in traditional brick-lined ovens. They make a variety of styles, including sourdough and rye breads, but also delicious confectionery, seasonal specialties and tray bakes and cakes for parties.


The Bretzel Bakery recently expanded to include a cafe, which is open during the same hours as the shop, and as well as selling from their own premises, Bretzel supply a number of speciality food stores including Fallon & Byrne and Donnybrook Fair, Kennedys of Enniskerry, Country Market in Howth, and Stable Diet in Wexford - check their website for the full list of outlets.


 

Bakery & Café open: Mon-Fri 8am-6pm, Sat-Sun 9am-4pm. abbreviations
