I am going to repeat what many have said previously...the bread at The Old Bakery is delicious. The full English breakfast was a great meal to start the day, but the toasted sourdough bread was a highlight. I wouldn’t normally rave about the useless condiment of toast, but this is an exception.

You can tell the “starter” used to begin the sourdough process is deliciously old and mellow. I recognize this because my grandmother had one in the back of the fridge she used for years to start her sourdough breads. The finished product The Old Bakery has to offer is wonderfully subtle with hints of sourness layered with yeasty sweetness. The toasted crust was superbly crunchy with a decadent nutty flavor.

Again, I’m not used to using words like decadent and yeasty sweetness to describe toast, but suffice to say our table of four had three full baskets before we had our last teas and coffees.

Overall a great comfy place with friendly service. Highly recommended.

Called in for coffee on Monday and was surprised that it became a pizza restaurant on that evening.
Pizzas were excellent and good value for money.
Good quality coffee although the scone in the cream tea not very exciting.

This cafe has potential but there are just a few things in the way of that. The opening hours are questionable, the portions are too small and it is a bit overpriced. However, It is dog friendly which is great and the coffee is good.

I often find the sourdough far too chewy and when we ordered the sweet potato wedges for almost £4 they arrived with 4 wedges on the plate. A piece of fruit sourdough toast is also £3!

The opening hours would be better if they were longer and open every day of the week. Also, a vegetarian breakfast would be a good addition to the menu.

A real gem in Cawsand/Kingsand, we stopped several times in our week there. Don't miss the excellent pizzas on Mondays only.
