Cakes, buns, baking. This cosy wee bakery has a handful of stools as well as takeaway cakes, biscuits, coffee and celebration cakes. A mural by Luke Edward Hall adorns one of the cafe's walls.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019/20 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

Painted in a very easy on the eye colour scheme of pale pink and bottle green, this Southside bakery opened in October 2018 and is fast collecting a fanbase of Newington regulars. Open from 8.30am during the week and 10am on Saturday, those in the know rush to get their slices of raspberry cheesecake, creme egg brownies, dark chocolate cookies and banoffee pie before they sell out. Wholesale orders of their Grace & Co buns and celebration cakes are available too, and they have a cake chauffeur if you fancy ordering some of their gold and rose-coloured macaroons in bulk for a party. There’s a small, green-tiled shop counter and a row of window seats if you fancy perching with a luxurious PB&J cupcake and coffee in a pink mug – it wouldn’t do to clash with the décor.
