Freshly baked bread is one of life’s great pleasures… A cornerstone of household groceries and something we simply couldn't live without!
What’s there not to love about bread and cakes?
The smell of freshly baked bread is one of the most comforting experiences around and a regular greeting as you enter Macknade.
We work with a number of high quality bakers to provide in excess of 20 different types of loaf on a daily basis.
Wild Bread bakes superb sourdough right here on site leavened by naturally occurring wild yeasts and using the best British flours available.
The Artisan Bakery have worked with us for a number of years and deliver their handmade breads from London every week for us to bake and serve fresh. Their ethos is based around simple and traditional techniques, resulting in wonderful breads with a superb flavour, perfect crumb and rich crust. We love their bread so much we use it for the sandwiches in our café!
With an increasing number of our customers gluten and wheat intolerant we have searched for quality ‘free from’ bread (that doesn’t taste like cardboard!) and now stock Findlaters excellent artisan range, which is suitable for coeliacs.
You’ll also be spoilt for choice by our selection of muffins and cakes that come from producers in Kent and further afield. A real favourite is Simply Fruit Cakes based in the Cathedral town of Canterbury (a ten minute drive from us!), who make some of the plumpest and most flavoursome fruit cakes we have come across.
