Eating & Drinking Guide

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

Despite its narrow frontage on Bread Street, this bakery/coffee shop is surprisingly spacious and pleasantly uncluttered. The sweet bakes are arguably the star attraction, though the menu has broadened recently to include a daily soup plus a small selection of sandwiches, all produced on the premises. Its unique selling point is its playful attitude to ingredients and flavours. A toffee popcorn, Twix and chocolate slice is a delicious indulgence, while jalapeño and white choc-chip brownies push the boundaries still further. Keep an eye on their social media accounts for details of bi-monthly ‘sconefest’ events, where one-off creations such as manchego cheese, peach and gin scones are quickly snapped up by office workers looking for an end-of-week treat. Service is personable and ethical credentials are front and centre.
