My dad comes here every weekend to get his bread and now I know why. Lovely granary sourdough with bacon and eggs, and the cinnamon roll was out of this world! I’d recommended getting there 10 minutes before opening to get a table as there’s...More

A must visit baker's... Lovely beef oysters and a variety of Cakes ( no tiny cakes here). Great value for hearty appetites. No facility to eat in...pity as the seagulls are nearby. I always take mine home.

Dashed in to avoid the rain. Warm welcome and quality food baked in house beats corporate food any day. Back tomorrow as their breakfast looks inviting

The smell of freshly baked sourdough bread gently emanates through the door to this shop. Spoil yourselves with one of the best bakewell tarts outside the village of Bakewell.

On a business trip to Plymouth and had a few hours spare so I ended up in Sutton Harbour. The window display of this bakery drew me in. Croissant and coffee were ordered and without wanting to sound OTT, it’s the best croissant I’ve eaten...More

Go here regularly for their sourdough. Sandwiches are great, tiny place so not much seating. Go early in the day for bread as they sell out quickly.

In short the best mushrooms on toast I’ve ever eaten. Wasn’t expecting to eat or sit but they had space and the smells were too good to not do so! Very small seating area and preparation area but well with eating at and buying bread...More

Hi. It opens at 9 am every day. There's been a queue the last few times I've been. It has a great selection of continental pastries and bread. It's definitely a first come first served it they bake throughout the day

I was only a guest but they are fairly young business so I suspect they may if they keep producing the outstanding baking and their reputation spreads 🤔😁🙏🏽

Jacka Bakery is once again a family bakery, with everything made and baked on site.
If you are looking for top quality artisan bread and delicious local speciality coffee then we are the place to be.
But if you are looking for sticky buns, pink fingers or a friary mill; we are not the place for you.

We have worked very hard to decorate and update the bakery, leaving in the original features.
We also work extremely hard to bring to top quality food, made fresh on the premises, daily.
We are new owners with a new passion and ethos.

We welcome you to join us. You better be quick, our bread is popular....
