Neighbourhood Profile: E5 Bakehouse

It feels like the neighbourhood just gets better and better with each day, and this week an example of this bettering goes to the great E5 Bakehouse.

I completely missed the upgrade that they have made to the much larger site 8 doors down from the original.. I must of been sleeping. But what a great improvement for us all.

You couldn’t get much different from the original, and although the original was quite charming – small nooks, hands without faces handing you loaves was all a bit cloak and dagger.. Now we have light expansive space, tables to eat and have coffee, and generally a very lovely space to hang out amongst the bread.

They have changed the ovens to a more commercial style, but this is understandable now that they are growing and they need to expand. I think that we can all get caught up in the romance of ‘rustic mud oven’ dreaming but I haven’t seen any changes in their great loaves since they have changed, and if there is more chance of them not selling out, then I am a happy customer.

If you haven’t been down there yet, do. They also deliver but then you would be missing out on checking out their new digs!
