BakeBox is a locally owned, Polish bakery and sandwich shop, which opened in the heart of Galway city on 28 October 2022.

They're located on the corner of Lower Abbeygate and Augustine Streets, in the premises that was previously Gerona cafe and before that Providence Market Kitchen.  This has been completely refurbished and fitted out as an on-site bakery and retail shop.  There's no outdoor seating and really no scope for it either, but there are a few tables and benches.

There's an extensive produce range:  their own heavy bread, Polish-style flatbread "pizzas" (called zapiekanka) , savoury pies and swirls, sweet treats including baked cheesecake-tarts, eclairs, croissant, brownies, mini-pavlovas, pączki (Polish-style donuts), and more

To start with, the exterior was a work-in-progress, but in December 2033 a supersize baker was added over the course of several mights.  Inside there's a feature-wall mural from a local artist, and very stylish display cabinets.

Generally open seven days a week, weekdays until 6pm, and 5pm on Sunday.
