STORY: CHARLES ARTISAN BREAD OPENS SECOND LONDON SITE
Clapton micro-bakery Charles Artisan Bread has opened its second site, located in Stratford.
Located in front of the Velodrome, the new bakery is a light-flooded relaxed space with rustic elements, inspiring quotes and earthy tones adorning the interiors.
Guests are welcomed by a wooden counter, where they can pick up pastries and fresh bread straight from the on-site bakery, which will open this autumn.
“After the increasing success of our small microbakery in Clapton and the support of all our customers, we thought it was the perfect moment to take the next step and spread our delicious croissants and sourdough bread further East, in Stratford," says Daniel Burke, owner and head baker at Charles Artisan Bread. "We’re extremely excited and we can’t wait to meet all locals and visitors.”
Using a slow 24-hour fermentation process, the bakery produces a finite number of goods daily, and each loaf and pastry is made with natural ingredients without additives.
What's on offer?
Custumers can choose from several loafs including the white Clapton Sourdough, the Charles Wholemeal Sourdough, the Multigrain Wholemeal Sourdough and daily specials, as well as savoury focacce and sandwiches.
Handmade pastries are also available, alongisde a plant-based offering with Vegan Almond Danish, Vegan Pear & Almond Danish, Vegan Apple Crumble Danish, and daily specials including Vegan Doughnuts.
Championing its East London’s origins, the bakery also stocks several local products including Honey from Hackney Garden Honey, Vegan Cheese from I AM NUT UK, Chilli Sauces from Dalston Chillies, and more.
