A West End classic pretty much as soon as it opened, with artisan-baked breads, tarts and sandwiches of striking quality.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2017/18 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

The hallmark of this artisan bakery at Kelvinbridge is top-notch quality in every area possible; from the locally sourced ingredients used in all of the on-site baking, to the cheery staff who seem to know their many regular customers – and even their dogs – by name, as they pop in for a range of breads and cakes, possibly hoping to grab one of the few pews on offer. The selection of savoury bakes includes the ever popular sausage rolls – exquisite pastry parcels encasing tender pork, sage and onion, or pork and black pudding, best served with the fresh and cutting apple relish. The pea, asparagus and parmesan tart, with a delicate base and vibrant spring-like flavours is another highlight. The cakes are of an equally high standard, particularly the white chocolate and raspberry tart, which marries sweet and sharp to make a deliciously indulgent treat.
