Dublin: Coffee Off The Beaten Path (For Now) At Blas Cafe feature on @blascafe by @griffski
The selection of gorgeous and unusual cakes and pastries laid out on the counter is downright dangerous—some are prepared in-house, the more floral are provided by fellow Northside business Wildflour Bakery , based just up the road in Stonybatter. This is another tender example of Northside Dublin businesses working in tandem, and adds to the strength of the community vibe that Blas radiates—it’s a real treat to have access to these delicious cakes this close to the city center without having to make the trek up the Luas line. Their passionfruit and raspberry cream sponge cake is garnished with fresh cream and striking purple and orange petals, passionfruit baked into the batter of the cake and the center layer of cream scattered with fresh raspberries—the resulting effect is a treat that’s both tart and sweet while remaining surprisingly light.
