The new café-cum-bakery from the Gana brand.
It’s the great-grandson of the original Gana bakery founders who has decided to breathe new life into their baked creations, serving them this new, tiny neighbourhood café, its massive counter topped by viennoiseries and cakes, its walls covered with a fresco-style picture of Corto Maltese.
Their Viennese pastries are fresh from 8am – special mention goes to the tourbillon pistache-choco (pistachio and chocolate whirl) and the organic, 100% arabica coffee. Linger until 10am to try their fresh cakes, hot out the oven: cult Gana creations like the excellent almond, pear and chocolate brioche (€2.50) or the pasty chef’s handiwork, like the carrot cake or lemon tart. And while you’re there, you may as well hang around until midday for sandwiches to go (€4.90) – the salmon, avocado, mint, cucumber and cheese combo, quiche or soup of the day. And if you still don’t feel like leaving, grab an afternoon snack before the café closes at 5pm.
