Salts Village Bakery

As I was walking around Saltaire in the fog early on Saturday, I thought how enticing the bakery looked, with its warm lighting and the fresh, morning stock of loaves and croissants in the window. I have often thought that at the weekend I should do as the French do and nip out for fresh supplies before breakfast and then relax with a large milky coffee and brioches. Somehow I never get round to doing that. I do, however, enjoy the bakery's produce. I can particularly recommend a local speciality called Yorkshire Curd Tart, which is a variation on a cheesecake, traditionally made with the curds left over from cheese-making and enhanced with spices and currants.

  1. It is a fine bakery. And I bet they still have proper Yorkshire teacakes.

  2. It is traditional in Denmark to go to the baker on a Sunday morning for fresh rolls of all varieties; it is one of the things I miss from the 10 years I lived there. Go on, give yourself a treat.

  3. Hi Jenny,

    I too love real bakeries. In Denmark where I come from, we always queue up for fresh-baked warm bread in the mornings, but here in Sweden everybody seem to prefer bread that comes in a plasticbag, which is kinda sad. Looking at your picture made me longing back for better bread-:)

    Best regards
    Asta

  6. What a nice place!! It looks very cosy...
    I will try out some typical Yorkshire cakes etc. as soon as I have the opportunity. I have a friend living in Bridlington, and I have tasted some really nice food..... Also Yorkshire pudding, and that I have had other places in the UK too.

  7. I know this cafe well. The last time I paid a visit to Saltaire I grabbed a bite to eat from here. They do lovely Cornish pasties as well.
