Retail branch of the much-loved traditional bakery and chocolatiers, supplied by the Ceres Road factory.
All four shops throughout Fife – two in Cupar and in St Andrews – retain the feel of a traditional ‘good old days’ cake shop. The enormous selection, elements of which are embedded in Fife cult legend (those fudge doughnuts), isn’t limited to cakes; the patisserie and chocolates are also hand-made in the Ceres Road bakery, and Scotch pies contain nothing but pure beef flank, water and seasoning. The production process remains almost entirely manual, even down to hand-rolling oatcakes. In 2013 the bakery introduced their 24-hour bakery to the South Street branch in St Andrews - a hot vending machine that rattles out a pie, stovies or fudge doughnut in less than a minute.
