The long established and beloved bakery and café Goyas has launched a new range of their signature celebration cakes for this year of relief.
For over 30 years Goyas’ cakes have been at the party of thousands of people and have celebrated everything from a Christening, to a 100th birthday.
Led by owner and baker Emer Murray, the Goyas cake is a symbol of celebration and coming together.
From the crowd-pleasing Chocolate Gateaux to the Vanilla Orange sprinkle cake, there is a slice of sweetness and joy for every palette.
“Our celebration cakes were our biggest business, along with our catering. The two just go hand in hand,” Emer says.
“We have seen so many changes in our customers throughout the years and have adapted our business to suit what they needed.”
“Now we are launching our celebration cake collection as we are ready to be together and truly celebrate life.”
Goyas, which is located on Kirwans Lane in Galways Latin Quarter is a firm favourite in the west.
A gem nestled away from the busy Quay Street, Goyas bakery, retail and at home offering has taken a new direction since 2020.
The much loved little eatery was always a sit-in café for mid-morning elevenses and for lunch, but has since redefined itself as a retail space that introduced Goyas at Home.
Home made savoury Quiches, soups and traditional home cooked dinners are available along with home baked scones, breads, tarts and signature bakes such as the luxurious caramel squares.
Celebration cakes and Goyas catering was launched in the early 90s and Goyas cakes quickly established themselves as the go to cake across Ireland for small- and large-scale events.
A Goyas cake is traditional and timeless, from the Coffee walnut sponge to the chocolate biscuit cake and to the lemon drizzle cake, there is nostalgia wrapped up in every bake.
“Cakes have always been my passion and to know that Goyas has been in so many homes, at weddings and at the most precious moments for people, well that for me is the love in every bake,” explained Emer.
