Lee, Christine, Pete – Crafty Bakers

The Crafty Baker opened its doors to the public on Friday – a roaring success, even though it meant that their fabled croissants had sold out by the time I arrived after midday. In my usual moderate way, I got a seeded sourdough loaf and a ginger slice (because it is hard to resist temptation). Yummy crusty bread – no doubt I will be back.

A family business (Lee the baker with wife Calli, and her parents Pete and Christine), based on sound values. We wish them success.

From their Facebook page yesterday (Saturday): “Crazy day today… you guys wipe us out, we had 4 cakes left at 2pm, no bread, no pies, no bakes, no sandwiches, no pastries!!!!! Thanks for everyones support. Opening tomorrow 8am- 2pm.” So better be quick!
