Bakehouse, a brand new bakery, cafe and eatery, has officially opened in Sutton Coldfield
Headed up by award-winning chef and owner of Baked In Brick, Lee DeSanges, the venue is spread across three floors and is housed in a former ironmongers shop. Former Wylde Green resident Lee chose to return to Sutton Coldfield to open his third premises following his successes with Baked In Brick in the Custard Factory and his Erdington bakery outlet.
A selection of freshly baked goods including cakes, breads and pastries are available to eat-in or take out. The ground floor holds the main bakery, with tables and chairs for guests, while the first floor offers a more relaxed space with comfortable sofas. The top floor is an exclusive, private-hire space.
The daytime offering includes bakery items and a brunch and lunch menu, with dishes such as eggs on sourdough toast, Spanish chorizo hash and croissant French toast. This menu is due to expand to include toasties, baked eggs and sandwiches.
Bakery items include pain au chocolat, brownie balls, Oreo and Twix brownie, pain au raisin, Bakewell tarts and millionaire’s shortbread.
Beers from local brewery Purity are also available, alongside a selection of wines and a cocktail menu.
Bakehouse will also be offering an evening menu from Thursdays to Sundays, and will be serving street food-inspired options including steak and chips and chilli and nachos.
Bakehouse is currently open on Wednesdays and Sundays from 9am–4pm and Fridays and Saturdays from 9am–10pm.
“I’m really pleased to be open and welcoming the residents of Sutton Coldfield to Bakehouse. As a local, I know that the area hasn’t had a bakery selling fresh bread and cakes before, so it’s great to know that we are a welcome addition. We will be open seven days a week soon and can’t wait to become part of the local community.”
