So, you like doughnuts eh?

Thanks to all those who came and made our open day last Saturday a great success. You could see that we are still finding our feet but hopefully you enjoyed what we were able to get out that day. Especially the doughnuts! Blimey but those flew out the bakery, freshly fried and filled with vanilla patisserie cream or rippled with salted caramel. That’s staying on the menu for sure. How about a regular Saturday brunch thing with freshly brewed coffee and a saltbeef sandwich? Watch this space.

We’re testing more recipes this week, so if you’re passing, knock on the door or shutter if you fancy being our guinea pig.



The calm before the storm


If you squint ever so slightly then you can make out the outline of a bakery. The huge oven (it scraped the door frame) and mixers were delivered this week. Fridges, freezers, tables, racks and most importantly a literal tonne of flour too. Yet there’s still so much more to arrive. Will we be ready for our open day tomorrow?



It’s been not a long time coming at all. An idea a couple of months ago, some talk and now we’re but a few days from opening as a bakery. We are so excited to start our business and looking forward to bringing really good bread and food to Brum.

At the moment our train arch on Water St is undergoing its transformation. Our crack team of builders and electricians are flying along building the walls and floor of the bakery. The whiterock cladding is on and it’s amazing to think that this huge space will be filled with equipment in the next few days. Hopefully the oven will fit through the double doors Carl!
