Our Story

Bakers + Baristas was founded in 1981 and since day one, the first thing we do each and every day is turn on the oven and open a fresh pack of coffee beans. Once the first batch of fresh muffins and pastries are out of the oven and you can smell the freshly ground coffee beans, we’re ready to open the doors.

Our passion and expertise (and probably those lovely aromas wafting out of the door) have meant we’ve now grown to 63 Bakers + Baristas stores across the UK and Ireland and amassed a well-thumbed recipe book of over 400 cakes and muffins, with an ever-changing seasonal offer in all of our stores. Let us tell you a little more of the secret to our success.

The Bakers + Baristas Menu

Our High Quality, Seasonal Menu of Freshly-Made Sandwiches, Cakes & Pastries

There’s no trickery to what we do; our ovens and kitchens are just behind the counter. Visit in the morning and you’ll see the magic happen - ovens baking fresh cakes, pastries, sausage rolls and a dedicate team making your fresh sandwiches or decorating your favourite muffin. We like to call it 'Happiness, fresh from the oven!'


Our Bespoke, 100% Arabica, Rainforest Alliance Certified Coffee Blend

We know that every coffee is a moment to be enjoyed and savoured. That’s why we have worked with highly experienced coffee experts to create a bespoke coffee blend that makes us proud to craft and serve each delicious cup of freshly ground coffee. Our blend has been chosen to deliver a full, rich flavour using the highest quality, Rainforest alliance, 100% arabica beans.

We are serious about our coffee.
