Retail Spotlight: Beyond Bread Bakery & Café Puts London On The Gluten-Free Map
London, United Kingdom: Open six days a week and offering 100% gluten-free products baked on the premises, Beyond Bread is doing things very differently in a fast-evolving market. The Bakery & Cafe is already creating quite a storm – not just among gluten-free fans – but those who appreciate good food that tastes delicious in a contemporary, stylish setting.
Since the official opening on January 5th 2015, customer feedback has been very positive and encouraging. Beyond Bread is a progressive culinary concept designed to create familiar tastes through gluten-free foods. Innovating and creating, leading and not following, the expert team is keen to promote gluten-free past any misconceptions of it being a passing fashion fad. Adriana Rabinovich, author of ‘The Gluten-Free Cookbook For Kids’, a highly respected pioneer in gluten-free cooking, assisted with the product development and the range is an diverse, delicious mix of pasties, pastries and pies, cakes and quiches, tempting tarts, sumptuous sandwiches, and of course, an excellent selection of gluten-free breads.
Lunchtimes, as predicted, are the liveliest period during the working week, and the brunch-seeking Saturday crowd are also becoming welcome regulars at the Fitzrovia bolthole. The Bakery & Café has been described as “…a chirpy charm offensive, some wry wit and an astounding range of baked treats in a fitting more fashion than focaccia”.
Feedback from customers is vital at this early stage – the team continually develop new products and seek inspiration from the very people they’re catering for. The gluten-free community has been incredibly supportive of the opening, and there are plans to introduce further innovative gluten-free products in response to demands.
