Where to begin... the croissants, the cinnamon swirls, the coffee, no the bread definitely the bread... After eventually deciding the croqué madame looked epic (saw one being served to another customer) I can honestly see it’s one of the best things I’ve eaten for brunch....More

Stopped in there for some brunch. The people were so lovely and friendly and the food was delicious. We also bought some sourdough which they happily held onto for us until we could pick it up!

Love this place for a coffee and a pastry, small but comfortable cafe with very good staff. Pastries are delicious as is the bread to take away.

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....
