When the GFC hit, Caryna Camerino was tasked with the unfortunate job of laying off construction industry workers. She turned to baking as her stress relief and from these dark days grew Caryna’s Cakes, which now supplies 30 over venues.
Capel st was once home to once one Dublin’s biggest bakery, owned by the Boland family. So, it seems apt that the area again houses one of the city’s most prominent bake houses: Camerino.
Premium ingredients are given some “Lovin’ From The Oven” – an oven that previously took up residence in the galley of La Peniche, Dublin’s restaurant boat. It now sits comfortably surrounded by salvaged interiors by Elemental (The Fumbally, Urbun).
Custom-made wedding and birthday cakes, a speciality, are on display in the window. At the counter you’ll find award winning favourites such as Raspberry Almond Squares and Chocolate Fudge Brownies. Amidst the decadence sits a till system with an eye-catching wooden case. It was handcrafted a friend of Caryna’s, the man behind Baressential Soaps.
While there is no seating, soup and sandwiches are available to take away. Tea is by Clement and Pekoe and coffee is by Roasted Brown. The Camerino family has a long history with coffee – relatives that remained in Italy founded the famous ‘Cafffe Camerino’ roasters and cafes.
