Overview

Shannen Keane’s Diva Cafe and Coffee House in Ballinspittle is joined by Diva Deli and Bakery just across the road. Shannen launched this separate premises in 2011, after demand in the cafe grew to the stage where extension was required, and the bakery kitchen at the cafe needed a home of its own. Diva Deli and Bakery was born.

A full on bakery kitchen, with tiny shop out front. Find a bunch of very friendly faces on the serving counter. They know their stuff so ask any question about any product and you’ll get an intelligent answer. Be tempted by the smell of breads baked in the traditional way, with handcrafting and  slow proving as part of the process.  The selection is as good as it gets. Shannen’s brother  Taylor Nelson is Head Baker here, having learned under his big sister’s wing before studying culinary arts in the States, then returning to hone his skills. Grab yourself a takeaway coffee and browse the deli counter for local cheeses and charcuterie, smoked fish, pestos and dips made from foraged ingredients from a producer very close by.  On the shelves, useful storecupboard 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 breads, plus anything you want to go on them, homemade buns, cakes, pastries and croissants,  plus really good coffee, or a selection of teas. A one stop shop for eating al fresco. Residents and visitors also find this a super spot to stock up on the special things they want for kitchen or fridge. After a bit of shopping you might fancy sitting down to soak up the atmosphere at Diva Cafe.  Stroll over the road and enjoy.  Two superb locations for good local food in a small West Cork village. Lucky Ballinspittle.

    artisan_foods

    Tom Durcan, craft butcher of over twenty five years experience, is a master of spiced beef. It has won him many honours. This fine Cork speciality is the underlining product at his butcher’s stall in the English market. Tom’s career began as a youngster, when he took a summer job in a butcher’s shop during school holidays. The experience proved invaluable. Working with an experienced butcher with his own slaughter house provided what Tom describes as a ‘fantastic education’ for the young novice in how to source animals, and the ground rules for good butchery.
