All our breads are shaped by hand, hence their unique and individual appearance! 
There are no added sugars, dairy or preservatives in any of our breads therefore the shelf life differs to commercial breads. Only our traditional boiled bagels have 1% added sugar.

We suggest storing your bread in the paper bag your bought it in or wrapping it in a clean tea towel which allows the bread to 'breathe'. We do not recommend wrapping it in plastic as it encourages condensation which will shorten its shelf life particularly in warmer months. All the breads will freeze well and we suggest once defrosted to refresh them by either slicing and toasting or for whole loaves, spraying with water and baking in 200C for 5 mins. 

We aim to sell out every day, making fresh batches of all loaves, baguettes and rolls each morning. You are welcome to place an order for any of our breads if you don't want to miss out and we will put it aside for you. Please call 09 412 6089 and leave your order, name and phone number.

Monthly Special
We offer a 'loaf of the month'. This depends on the season and ingredients. Some of these loaves are so popular they end up on our 'regular list', others are saved for festive times only. They are always made with a natural starter rather than commercial yeast as we would like to encourage more people to try this European style of bread. Bread made with a natural starter have a lower G.I content due to the slow fermentation breaks down the flour proteins. Which means they are easier to digest and better for you!
