The Pepper Pot people have opened a bakery a stone’s throw from their cafe in Powerscourt Townhouse Centre. The bakery which opened on July 14th, in George’s Street Arcade, sells a range of sweet and savoury pastries alongside their freshly baked bread.
They have had a busy few weeks since The Pepper Pot kicked off the soft reopening of their cafe at the start of May, the team have launched their new signature pastry box and now opened the bakery.
The location of the bakery was deliberate, as the team were keen to have a new place to sell their wares while also staying close to the Powerscourt Townhouse Centre.
The Pepper Pot people have been trialling some of their new wares online, sharing images of dipped croissants, bagels, focaccia, pear, bacon and cheddar pastry.
Speaking of opening in the iconic arcade, Pepper Pot Cafe owner Marian Kilcoyne wrote, “we are so excited & honoured to be opening our bakery unit” the Pepper Pot team wrote on Instagram, “joining the eclectic mix of stall holders in this 1800s iconic Dublin institution”.
“Spent many a Saturday in my teens hanging out here eating chips & scouring the stalls for Pearl Jam t-shirts”.
The signature pastry box which launch earlier in June signalled a refocus on online products while the team refined their takeaway offering, “It’s part of our reopening and diversifying due to covid and how we’ve had to adapt our business,” Kilcoyne told us.
The Pepper Pot Bakery can be found in George’s Street Arcade, follow them on Instagram for more information.
