Barron’s Bakery and Coffee House
Cappoquin, Co. Waterford
Barron's Bakery and Coffee House in Cappoquin, are one of County Waterford’s finest traditional bakeries. Barron's breads & blaa’s are all made in a traditional brick oven. The heat retention properties of the brick produce a more consistent bake, the bread is allowed lots of time to develop and ferment and the final result is nothing but sheer goodness.

Barron’s Bakery and Coffee House in Cappoquin is probably the oldest bakery in Ireland. One thing’s for sure, there’s not another which has the original Scotch brick ovens that bake the really special kind of bread this bakery is famous for. The bakery employs the same traditional bread making methods used since it was opened in 1887 by the present owner's grandfather, John Barron.

The pretty café and bread counter, is packed to the brim with loaves, cakes, tarts, gateaux and all manner of good things. Each day, a simple menu is displayed on the counter. There is always a fresh soup on offer. You'll also find home spun hot main courses like home chicken pie, bacon pie and courgette quiche, served with salad and a choice of sandwiches and filled blaas. Sweets include the divine Barron’s bread and butter pudding, pear and almond tart and continental style apple strudel, or any of the buns and pastries on display. Enjoy these with a cup of tea or coffee, and you won’t resist buying a few buns, a cake, and certainly some of the bakery’s bread to take home you afterwards.
