The bakery's long queue of customers waiting for their daily fix is testament to the popularity of their utterly delicious wares -- from rustic breads such as their famous spelt sourdough to the flaky pork and fennel sausage rolls (delicious and easy to make) to the most addictive sweet pastries like ginger br#65533;l#65533;e and pistachio tarts.
