Pat and Mary O'Neill's charming old world home bakery, café and 'foodhall' is a must-visit when in the area

Sugar & Spice

Pat and Mary O'Neill's charming old world home bakery and 'foodhall' suits this delightful traditional village to a tee - and, not only does it bring people from miles around to shop here and have a bite of something wholesome to eat, but their products are also finding their way into some other interesting places too.


They have a number of strings to their culinary bow, all with high quality and a wish to support the principle of artisan production as core values.


As a bakery, they produce a wide range of delicious treats, many of them gluten free, and with cakes a speciality - particulartly their wedding and special occasion cakes, which are understandably much in demand.


As café, they're open all day and this is the place to call into for a cup of Jave Republic fair trade coffee or tea in the morning or afternoon, or a freshly made soup or something more substantial at lunchtime.


You might notice that delicious dry cured bacon features quite a bit on the menu and why wouldn't it, as the renowned O'Neills Dry Cure Bacon (see entry) is Pat's other business - and both the bacon and bakery products are stocked at Greens Farm Shop (see entry), among many other local retail outlets.  


And it's not just their own delicious products that are available here, they also stock some carefully selected artisan products from the area - Featherbed Farm Ice Cream, for example, and Wexford honey - and some from a bit further afield, such as Kilbeggan porridge oats from Westmeath, Keoghs Crisps from north Dublin and Aruna sauces from Ardee in Co Louth.


Quite the little empire: a must-visit when in the area.
