Some people say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I say, brunch is.
If you’ve read the Brunch n Grind portion of my blog, you’ll know that I spend a lot of time brunching whether that’s with my Brunch n Grind babes, my boyfriend, or getting creative in my kitchen. It’s my favourite way to spend a lazy Sunday morning or refuel after a big workout.
Having had some incredible brunches whilst living in London, being back in Bath meant it was time to scope out my new playing ground!
If you’re looking for a relatively undiscovered place to enjoy a healthy brunch, I urge you to head to The Cakery. Located just outside of Bath’s city centre in Widcome, the area has been brought back to life with a mixture of local boutique shops, florists and restaurants. Widcome is raising the bar when it comes to supporting local independent businesses and exists as a perfect space to have a wander and catch up with friends.
Lovingly owned and ran by Ella, The Cakery is an Artisan bakery committed to producing home baked goods using fresh, local and ethical ingredients – all vegetarian, with vegan, gluten free and sugar free options.
Having known Ella for a few years, I just had to take a trip to see her amazing cafe, and seeing as I’d missed Mothers’ Day, I knew it would be the perfect place to treat my lovely little Mum and sister. We visited one Friday, mid-morning, and thinking with our tummies first, headed straight for the food menu, trying to start with a savoury option before diving into the cakes.
My sister and I opted for poached eggs on homemade GF toast, while my mum was lured in by Ella’s homemade granola and almond milk; all washed down with a cup of delicious bean shot coffee.
Leaving just enough room for cake, we couldn’t leave without trying some of Ella’s mouth watering homemade tasty bakes. We went for a slice of the spiced orange cake and vegan, gluten free carrot cake. UN-believable.
Friendly service, lovingly-prepared food all served in a beautiful setting, The Cakery gets 5 stars from me! I can’t recommend this lovely location enough!
Get yourself down to The Cakery and take advantage of its calming yet gorgeous setting whilst it remains tourist free!
