Will try to drop in on Saturday. On these cold and wet days, make sure you use your open fire, it would be quite literally a focus to draw people in.

I luckily went in Wednesday had a very nice slice of chocolate cake and coffee and bought a large loaf.
Loaf was eaten in a day! Oops.

I was (ahem) working from home today so popped up to get some lunch. see my purchases here, the bread was flipping gorg-e-pops. Returning home tonight late with not much in, I thought what can I make for tea. So used some of the sourdough to make posh beans on toast. See it here.

I thought the shop was ace, they're still sorting stuff out so bear with them, but the bread is really top notch. We've banged on for ages on this forum about getting proper shops, and this is one, so all I'm going to say is please use it!

This is definitely my favourite spot at the moment.
Had a couple of days off and took the chance to stroll around the Triangle on week-days (a rarity for me), I must stay I have been there 4 days in a row and I had their cappuccino, latte, bread, cakes you name it I had it !!!

GO-RGEOUSSS!!!!

The choco cake was great and the bread too nice to be left on the shelves.

The girl who served me was brill and friendly.

I think they are closed on Sundays

They are closed on Sundays as I found out after walking up. Bit of a shame really, I think they could do very well. Still looking forward to becoming a regular.

we popped in there Saturday and had a couple of coffees with quiches - which were delish! Then we took our olive loaf off to the cheese stall near the indoor market and bought some yummy cheeses and went home to finish off lunch with some salad etc. Very enjoyable and will definitely be doing that again :rolleyes:

Decent opening hours is a bonus.

Will definitely give this place a try when I get the opportunity.

Really good to have the shop unit in use again.. last time it was used as Christmas tree shop Christmas 2005 is that correct?

Bought a fresh loaf yesterday - absolutely delicious. Congrats! Was wondering, any chance of fresh roll and/or French sticks?!
