This is a little cake and coffee shop I found near Christchurch in Dublin. It was decorated beautifully and served some delicious cakes and snacks. I recommend the croissants, the macarons and the chocolate slice. And a big hello to the lovely, friendly young cutty from Donegal who served behind the counter.

A fine array of sweetmeats on display here. I don't have a sweet tooth myself but I would certainly be tempted to take a photo. Ideally cropped and nicely lit. Love the warm tones and reflections. Trust you are keeping well and not working too hard.

I guess that where there is food, anywhere in the world ther is a Lisa around.I am very lucky I guess, I don't have a sweet tooth. But give me wine and proscuito and I am there.
Very good control of the reflexion in the window.
Have a nice day

Ciao Lisa, non me le far vedere queste cose, che mi sale la glicemia, favolosa nitidezza, quasi non si vede la vetrina, vien voglia di allungare la mano..., bravissima, un abbraccio Silvio

We must stay away from such places, too many temptations, Lisa, and good that taken from behind the glassed windows - just the smell could draw me for a sneak...
Fine place, elegant in view and well taken photo. Peacock-green is usually a bit more saturated bright green - but never mind, it doe's have a nice name for a bakery.

sarei curioso di sapere se sei stata attratta dalla vetrina per l'allestimento fatto molto bene o per il contenuto della stessa.
In ogni caso la disposizione degli oggetti è frutto di uno studio molto accurato e nello stesso tempo anche la tua foto lo è.
Infatti è notevole la totale assenza di riflessi e nello stesso tempo nitidezza e colore appaiono impeccabili mentre l+appare superlativa la gestione della luce.
Ciao e buona giornata

That is one amazing shop window! Very stylish. Chocolate brown and gold go always well together. And this has so much original details. And then the idea how those delicacies would taste.
I can just see your reflection, which is a nice detail too.
macjake (68488) 2014-01-29 11:07
now THIS is what I like! Forget the weird seafood :)
When i'm in here I want one of those, one of these, and one more of those :)
gotta like those muffins too!
whats not to like!
cute and friendly type of photo, and I can even see you in it too.
have a great one
carlo62 (49261) 2014-01-29 15:38
tu sei molto brava con la fotocamera, ma certe foto dovrebbero tiglierle immediatamente, questa è istigazione bella e buona....uff....sembra di sentire il profumo...
Un saluto a Kevin che deve sopportare in silenzio :)

You´re tempting us again:)First,delicious Pizza,now these heavenly cakes and pastries.And looking at this shop window I believe in every word from their slogan.
And apart from these pastries I like the way you framed the scene and the reflections of the street and You taking this picture.It adds also special charm to this scene.
Subhogen (4067) 2014-01-30 1:04
Like the array of mouth watering goodies. Very tempting! The warm golden light has created a feel good atmosphere. I like the way you have managed the glass reflection. Very unusual name for a cake shop though, liked it as well. Thanks for sharing a tasty shot!

ciao cara Lisa,
Nice window of this small coffee shop. All this looks old style. I wonder waht are these little secrets. Some croissants and macarons, why not. But like other have said, I have (fortunately) not sweet tooth, the sweets can not exist, I can't say the same about pork products or pastas.
Still a bit freezing (-12) MAlgo
RhodieIke (11744) 2014-01-30 3:30
I will have a cherry muffin please.
Great tight crop on this cute bakery shop, we get a taste of everything(if only)in this shop window and I can see you are looking very smart with your hair up.
abmdsudi (54607) 2014-01-30 4:00
I am impressed with the passion and skill with detail of layouts. Good colourful closeup, you've made everyone hungry with those goodies. I like the warm lighting well exposed and sharp making this a nice image with excellent contrast. Congrats.

Hello dear Lisa,
Very nice capture of this confectionery display with many interesting detais !
Just good for my diabetes :-)
TFS and best regards

Finally, I get to write a comment on trekearth and use the word eclectic, yeay! Looks like a nice place, and believe it or not, I am hungry right now, and this shot is not helping. Also not helping is the fact that this is only a few miles from where I am right now, so I could actually jump in the car and take your advice on a nice cake. Hmmmmm, food for thougt (forgive the bad pun!!).
Great shot of a very unusual looking place.
Now, to the cake mobile!
brianmcc (6219) 2014-01-30 11:20
this looks very appealing, from the framing, the light, the colours, the warm and inviting atmosphere, and of course the food. only one problem i'm on a diet so it's just torture looking at those muffins.
tyro (25334) 2014-01-30 12:15
Ciao cara Lisa,
Excuse me while I slobber on my keyboard at the sight of this wonderfully appealing place and its even more appealing wares displayed in its very tastefully laid out window.
You have captured this lovely window perfectly in lovely light and with exquisite details of all those gastronomic delights. I'm pleased too that you went inside and partook of some of those treats but, oh, why did you not include a nice little map so that we could go and find it?

What else could I expect from you except nice
quality and sharp.
I think that I have here what I write because a picture says a thousand words.
Greetings and all the best :-)
jemaflor (98091) 2014-01-30 23:49
Light is well capture, perfect sharpness too, pleasant view with all these details, interesting effect with reflections.
papagolf21 (102430) 2014-01-31 3:16
Bonjour, chère Lisa,
Il suffit de voir la vitrine et le contenu pour déjà grossir !
Il n'en demeure pas moins que je goûterais volontiers quelques sucreries et pâtisseries.
Très bonne mise en image.
Waylim (25502) 2014-01-31 9:39
I can't help it, after pizza, I just want some sweet, goodness, I'm going to be a fat queen, for I can't control myself. What a wonderful display, mouth watering image, especially the reflection of the girl with a camera. Yummy.
mkamionka (37241) 2014-02-01 13:25
beautiful cafe window, there is so much decorative elements and reflections with a subtle glimpse inside. It looks very encouraging, if I was still there I would definitely try to find it and test by myself. We can also see your reflection :)
Very well done! Quite original presentation from Dublin!
sabermonajati (11239) 2014-02-02 10:03
very interesting shop you shot.
mirosu (16265) 2014-02-02 20:14
Excellent shop window photo with many beautiful, tasteful details.
Excellent close-up photo with very nice colors, perfect light, very good clarity. The well-chosen tight crop eliminates all unwanted distractions.
Very well done.
Wish you a very nice week ahead.
fabbs99 (17167) 2014-02-02 21:11
Hello Dear Lisa,
Superb shot of the confectionery shop.Good sharpness and lights.Keep sharing.TFS.
SnapRJW (31629) 2014-02-03 4:26
Hello Lisa - I love this style of shop and we just don't have such pretty places in Windhoek! This is a place to press one's nose up against the glass and drool, actually I don't have a big passion for sweetmeats but I think I could be tempted by this display. A slice of rich, dark fruit cake would suit me..... yummy. An inviting shop and an inviting shot... the gold lettering and warm golden light make this the home of angels ;)
Warm regards Rosemary
batalay (38951) 2014-02-03 23:56
Hello dear Lisa,
This is a slice of heaven! If you sprinkle books and sweets into the same scene, what else would you have. I cannot make out the selection of books, and a few older ones with varying sizes would help. Also, I do not see any almond macaroons and meringues, but it is an eclectic selection, photographed to perfection.
Gigidusud (21151) 2014-02-07 15:03
Ciao cara Lisa,
Ottima inquadratura su questa bellissima vitrina con deliziose patiserie. Mi piace la decorazione ed i riflessi. Bravissima!
Ti auguro un buon fine settimana.
COSTANTINO (65806) 2014-02-10 10:29
lovely decoration from this coffee shop
thanks for sharing it with us
nice colorful close up
jcpix (13930) 2014-02-16 16:16
How's my Australian counterpart doing, you dirtbag? lol
Love your humor dear Lisa, and combined with your photog skills is a big win-win!
I'm afraid if I found myself standing in front of this window display I would be promptly escorted away because I had been licking the glass...it looks just as the text indicates, heavenly! :) I think this just might satisfy my sweet tooth. I love walking the streets and being able to smell the delectable aromas that fill the air around these types of shops, which are enhanced even more by the visual.
Tough to get this kind of shot proper, so many aspects to tackle with lighting, glare, reflection etc., but you've come away with a beauty! Glad you went in for a little tasty treat yourself.
Enjoy the week ahead. Be good now. ;)
