Introducing some of the family baking firms based in Dundee

Of cakes and bakes

Clark's Bakery

Dundee has a rich seam of family bakers with branches across the city and surrounding area. Goodfellow & Steven, established in 1897 in Broughty Ferry, makes a speciality of celebration cakes, while Fisher & Donaldson is a classy craft bakery with headquarters just over the Tay in Fife. Their specialities include fudge doughnuts and little sponge cakes wrapped in a ‘bandage’ of greaseproof paper known as ‘Sair Heids’ (sore heads).

Jonathan Clark, who runs the family business Clark’s Bakery with his father Alan, believes people want local, family-run businesses to do well in Dundee, and in what they produce. ‘There’s a sense that getting not just experience and familiarity, also really good, locally sourced food. It’s about looking at what went before, but equally, we try hard to always be thinking ahead.’
