Give us each day our daily bread

After we paid a visit to Pop-Up Studio (see post HERE) on Saturday we had a stroll down the hill into Low Fell to grab some coffee and delicious cake at Urban Bakery (get liking their Facebook page HERE) with my boys as my wife was studying and we decided to stay out a bit longer as we were getting the impression we may be hindering her concentration or as they say around these parts dee'in her 'eed in.

We first found Urban Bakery as I wandered round, lost in Low Fell looking for an estate agents when we were planning on moving to Bensham from Middlesbrough, it's situated just opposite the Beaconsfield pub (which I've been meaning to pop into for ages) at 10B Beaconsfield Road just up the hill from the High Street away from all the road noise, so it's nice and quiet in case you wanting to chill out or just relax.

Urban Bakery is a small craft bakery in Low Fell ran by husband and wife bakers Jonathan and Lindsay and all the goods are baked fresh each day... in their words Breads first, then scones with savouries emerging triumphantly late morning while cakes are made at a more leisurely pace in the afternoon ready for the following day. From 11am they begin to make sandwiches. Huge, hand made buns, full of salad and a selection of fillings chosen from anything available in the bakery.

I like sitting in the window with my usual flat white and a brownie as I usually come along from Bensham into Low Fell on my bike, so it's a good energy hit after all those hills. All the food is lovely and the smells from the bakery out back makes your mouth water, it's a great set up which has clearly been made with lots of love and attention to detail, from the counters full of cakes and buns, to the hand scrawled blackboards and shelves of locally sourced produce, books and decor. It's really nice watching people come in to get their daily bread, and Jonathan has a great rapport them all.

Unlike many coffee shops around and about the prices in Urban Bakery are seriously pocket friendly which makes it a definite return visit on your rounds. Bear in mind it's a strictly old school cash only for purchases so bring some money with you.
