The Bakehouse located in Sutton Coldfield is a cosy rustic cafe, that offers sweet treats and savoury dishes.
We were definitely spoilt for choice, I was eyeing up all the baked goods on entering, and torn between a few breakfast options, which isn’t a common occurrence for me, as I tend to play safe, and stick to my usual breakfasts if they are on the menu.
But Bakehouse had options that I was intrigued by, and had my mouth watering before I even saw the meal itself.
The pricing was also something that we found refreshing, especially as the menu wasn’t just a run-of-the-mill offering. I would not feel I’d spent an extortionate amount for a meal, unlike other places I have been to.
It’s rustic charm is stylish and comfortable, without being too worn, or over done. Bakehouse felt family friendly and stood out due to it’s location.
I took my daughter along with us and not only did she enjoy the food but the staff were extremely friendly and helpful with her. Especially as she has certain requirements in relation to food, due to her disability.
We felt very welcomed and as if nothing was a trouble or too much of an ask. I was over the moon with the service we received.
The food was just as delightful as the staff, I had Croissant French Toast. Which was beautifully presented and the combination of the fresh fruit and yogurt, with the warm toasted pastry – perfect! I could have tried a second serving!
My friend ordered the Spanish Chorizo Hash and obviously I had to have a taste. It was absolutely stunning and the next time I visit, it will be, without a doubt, what I’m ordering.
If the meals alone didn’t satisfy enough, which they unequivocally did, then the bakes they had on display took it to another level. The fact I couldn’t possibly order and eat all of them all made it a very difficulty decision for me. I eventually settled for a favourite cinnamon bun and lotus blondie.
I thoroughly enjoyed both, and paired with my oat milk latte, it topped the whole morning outing off for me. I am a sucker for a good coffee and pasty/cake, Bakehouse definitely didn’t disappoint on that front either.
There are only a handful of places that I would consider a go, more so when it comes to breakfast or a coffee and this has made it right up there as one of my favourites right now. Not just because of it’s food and drink but because of the overall atmosphere, with it’s lovely staff and laid back but stylish environment.
Sunday seemed to be a very busy day for Bakehouse and as we were told, they do have an online booking service that I would definitely recommend you to use, as there were many walk ins and many pre made bookings. I am not in the slightest bit surprised at it’s popularity, my experience was very pleasant and I will be booking again for sure!
