The home-baked treats are piled high, the counter is packed with handmade truffles and the air is scented with richly roasted coffee beans.
On first inspection Torc Café and Food Hall may seem like a den of indulgences, but there’s an equally tempting savoury menu, packed with wholesome offerings, that ensures you’ll enjoy plenty of guilt-free goodies here too.
An outpost of the Longford original, fans can expect another bright, airy space, over two floors, with plenty of natural light. Torc’s pleasing breakfast menu leads into all day offerings that go way beyond ubiquitous sandwich fillings.
Choose from bagels, panini, open sandwiches and wraps crammed with interesting choices like roast beef, red onions and horseradish, or perhaps roast vegetables, herb cheese and pine nuts.
Colourful salads, complete with signature dressing, soup and antipasti plates make for lighter options, ensuring you have space for the main attraction: dessert!
While the majority of cakes, slices, muffins and cookies are chocolate-based, using Torc’s own brand of quality chocolate, there’s a tempting array of other gateaux including lemon drizzle, Baileys coffee and carrot.
The drinks menu includes speciality coffees and hot chocolate and there’s an interesting selection of cold drinks.
Torc offers a take out service and with shelves stocked with homemade condiments, unusual confectionary and gourmet treats from Irish and overseas artisans, you can take home a treat too, or even order a hamper.
