Welcome to Big River Bakery and…... Cafe!

We’re a small batch bakery in Shieldfield, specialising in slow ferment, handmade breads, made with all organic flours and real fresh ingredients. We’re also a social enterprise, aiming to embed in the fabric of our area and contribute to the wellbeing of our community in all its facets.

The bakery café

As of January 23rd we are very excited (and a little bit trepidatious!) to announce that we are launching a small but delicious breakfast, brunch, and lunch menu. From Wednesday to Friday come and find us for oven fresh breads hitting the shelves throughout the day, and a lush little offering of tasty things – all made from scratch inhouse.

Served to go

Everything is served to go, but we would really love it if you brought your own cups, lunchboxes, bowls – anything you like! – and we will happily serve your food and drinks in them instead.

We’ll also be serving Pink Lane Coffee and a selection of Estate Tea Co teas, alongside a range of carefully curated local produce. Whether it’s Lunch, coffee, or a loaf, spending a few pounds with us genuinely keeps your money working to benefit our local communities.

Open Wednesday to Friday, 9am-2pm for now, we’re just a short walk from the heart of Ouseburn and right on the doorstep of the city centre.
