We at Dunn’s Bakery have been crafting scrumptious treats for five generations. We’re definitely comfortable with a mixing bowl and some powdered sugar. The excitement we receive from our amazing customers and local Crouch End community continue to drive our family business forward.
The story of Dunn’s Bakery is extremely important to the spirit of our establishment here in Crouch End. So, where did it all begin? In 1827, Robert Freeman started the business and now Robert’s great-great grandson, Christopher Freeman, wife Christina and son Lewis continue the baking tradition of Dunn’s. The fancy cakes and yummy treats that are made today do not fall shy of the original indulgence of baking excellence. The eclectic menu has since evolved, but all of the knowledge and techniques have been passed down from generation to generation.
Each treat baked here at Dunn’s Bakery has a story. Not just a story of 2 cups flour and 3 tablespoons vanilla. It’s a story of laughter and the community that surrounds Dunn’s. The Freeman bakers and the entire baking family here at the shop, are not only proud to represent this area, but want to forever be the creators of the sugar coated and cream filled memories of every Crouch End resident.
Although we know all you want is another bite of that delicious tart or bun, before you stop in for a treat, we want to thank you. The sweet smells that fill this shop are only half of the delight of running this North London bakery. A variety of craftspeople and trades backgrounds have built up the staff of Dunn’s over the years. However, the most important member of the staff has remained constant since the very start. And that member is you.
Our customers and the community are not only crucial to the running of this bakery, they are the best part of our staff. To our staple of traditional buns and breads, we have added so much to the menu from our gluten free additions to our ever-changing wedding cake designs, but one thing that will never change is the high quality ingredients and care that goes into making our baked goods.
The families that have consistently come back for seconds will always remind us why we enjoy creating delicious treats. We hope your children and their children will always want the extra layer of frosting as well.
