After hearing many great things about Harts Bakery, on Saturday afternoon we drove down for some lunch and coffee to see what all the fuss is about.
The bakery can be found right next to Temple Meads, instead of taking a left up to Temple Meads keep walking and you’ll see a road which runs parallel to the main road running up to the station. Harts Bakery is next door to the old venue, Tunnels and is tucked away so only the well researched or ‘in-the-know’ can find it. This isn’t to say the bakery is quiet because of it’s location, there is a pleasant background noise of chattering mums and couples checking in for their weekend cheese toastie and coffee.
The bakery is open plan so you can indulge in the amazing process of the bread making, the smell of baking and fresh cakes is glorious and really makes the food that you’re ordering seem that much more appetising knowing the love and attention that it’s received.
It took so much willpower to stop ordering when we were asked if we’d like anything else, unlike the regulars we took much longer singling out one delicious choice. I ordered a cheese toastie made with the bakery’s sourdough bread and a latte (pictured below) it was DELICIOUS – Harts Bakery has thought everything through, from the type of cheese in the bread to the filling in the mince pie. You can trust in places like this knowing they don’t cut corners with using cheap ingredients. The cost of my lunch came to about £6 all in all which was absolutely fine and justifiable for making me happy on what was a rainy Saturday afternoon.
