How cool is this? A delicious brunch in Bakestone of eggs benedict, with the eggs served on an English muffin and accompanied by nice herby potatoes, or maybe a great big, yummy Croque Madame topped with a fried egg, a delicious cup of Badger & Dodo coffee, and then the cool sounds of a jazz piano trio start to make their way into the ether at the Ballyseedy centre.
Does it get better than that of a Sunday morning in east Cork? No, we don’t think so either.
Joe and Maura have made Bakestone into a don’t miss! destination in just over two short years. Their ingenious mix of stunningly fine cooking and baking, friendly service and, most recently, cool Sunday sounds from a diverse host of excellent musicians, is a potent cocktail of pleasure. The cooking always manages to have the very thing you felt like eating – meatball sub with cheddar and mustard; grilled nectarines with prosciutto; wild mushroom pie with Cashel Blue and walnut salad – punchy, pleasing food that offers true tastes as well as excellent value for money. Bakestone is on trend.
