OverviewA little secret just between us: Ballinspittle in West Cork has a gorgeous place to eat and shop for delicious artisan produce and it’s called Diva Boutique Bakery. You really are in for a treat when you visit here as it is a haven for those who want good food and good company in a spot where there’s always a buzz. This little café and deli are right in the heart of the village. You can’t miss it, and shouldn’t.
The aroma of freshly baked breads and sweet treats will entice you into Shannen Keane’s Diva Boutique Bakery in Ballinspittle. Shannen launched the venture in 2011 after demand in her previously owned cafe across the road grew to the stage where an extension was required and the bakery kitchen at the cafe needed a home of its own. And so, Diva Deli and Bakery was born and it is a full-on bakery kitchen with a shop out front.
You’ll find a bunch of very friendly faces on the serving counter and they know their stuff so ask any question about any product and you’ll get some terrific details. The bakery is filled with the aroma of bread baked in the traditional way with handcrafting and slow proving as part of the process. The selection of bread is great and so too is the choice of local cheeses, charcuterie and smoked fish that adorn the deli counter. You’ll also find pestos and dips made from foraged ingredients by a local producer.
The shelves are crammed with useful store cupboard items and a whole range of Diva dressings, chutneys and preserves. This is a handy little shop if you fancy a picnic to take to Garretstown Beach or woods and other scenic spots in the area. You’ve got the best and freshest bread, plus anything you want to go on them as well as tempting homemade buns, cakes, pastries and croissants, plus really good coffee and a selection of teas. A one-stop-shop for good eating and drinking.
A superb location for good local food in a small West Cork village. Lucky Ballinspittle.
