La Baguette

French baker Didier Senecal is proud to describe his very popular craft bakery and café in the centre of Gorey as “An Irish bakery with a French touch” and, like many of the most successful cultural introductions to Ireland, it combines the authenticity of the country of origin - and perhaps some specialised imported ingredients - with the best of local produce.


It’s not a fancy place at all, but very pleasant, welcoming and businesslike, with all the delicious freshly baked breads and gorgeous patisserie and cakes laid out in orderly displays. Everything is home made and baked freshly every day without any no preservatives colourings - they are the only Irish members of ‘Ronde Des Pains’, a quality-led network of independent craft bakers, and have many awards attesting to their high standards.


The range of breads covers everything from (surprisingly perhaps) traditional Irish soda bread to the currently popular sourdough loaves. Baguettes, rustic country loaves, spelt & honey and other specialities - and, a very nice touch for anyone with a food intolerance, if you go to their website all of the dozen or so regular breads are listed and you can get a full list of ingredients for each one.


The nice little café offers a simple lunch menu - this is the place to come if you’re hankering after a proper French Croque M’sieu, but there are plenty of everyday choices like homemade soup, baked potaoes with various fillngs, quiches, lasagne with salad and garlic bread, sandwiches and wraps. All very familiar, but distinguished by their quality and real homemade flavour.


But it’s when you get to the cakes and desserts that the fun really starts - who could resists the likes of proper French tartes (chocolat, framboise, pommes. fraises, citron…) mille feuilles, or gorgeous baba au rhum?


But as well as a host of French classics, there are old favourites too, like brownies, carrot cake, tea bracks and crumbles - all with that certain je ne sais quoi...You can enjoy these at any time of day with something refreshing from the drinks menu (which, of course, includes hot chocolate). It’s a smashing place and you’ll be glad you found it.
