7 December 2021 – Selfridges adds a new bakery destination to its London Foodhall with an offer of delicious fresh pastries and bread baked everyday in store, alongside specially selected items from London’s best bakeries. The new bakery is three times bigger than the previous offer and located next to Selfridges Pop Up Kitchen and the Little Moons’ Pic ’n’ Mix counter.
The curated bakery offer will include the very best from St John’s Bakery (The City), Sally Clarke (Notting Hill) and Karaway (Borough Market.) Selfridges will also have exclusive pastries from Insta-hit Criss Cross (Soho) and in January, the space will welcome colourful doughnuts from Urban Legend.
The new bakery will be the perfect spot to pick something up for breakfast with the space open from 8am Monday – Sunday. As well delicious freshly baked pastries, The Bakery will be stacked high with cinnamon sugar pretzels and cardamon buns. For those looking for a pick-me-up, customers will also be able to order freshly roasted coffee from neighbouring coffee destination, The Roasting Plant. For lunch, there will be wedges of golden focaccia, grilled cheese croissants and artisan sausage rolls.
