Fun fact of the day: researchers at the University of Southern Brittany in France discovered that smell has a particular effect on our behaviour. This aroma encourages us to be kinder to strangers. In their findings, published in the Journal of Social Psychology, the scientists say that, “in general, spontaneous help is offered more in areas where pleasant ambient smells are spread.” In other words, if you come to our North London bakery you may find the people more pleasant because of the aroma of our baked goods in the air!
In our almost two hundred years of experience, we have found that our freshly baked bread is what really keeps the community in Crouch End happy and coming back for more. Our bread offerings range from baguettes to hovis, ciabatta to rustic and just about everything in between. We use only the best of ingredients, making sure that each loaf is hand crafted to give it a distinctive taste. We also use reduced salt and have gluten free breads available to keep everyone happy and healthy. Each of our bakers are specially trained to make each and every loaf of freshly baked bread taste delicious, so regardless of the pleasant aroma people leave here happier than when they came in.
