When baker Dave Brown found the building at Ripponlea, it was being used as a book distributor’s office. The oven had no roof over it but these days, after early renovations, it sits cosily in the back of the long narrow building.The oven is lit every morning around 5am and heats while the dough is proving. Fresh bread for the day comes out of the oven around 1pm, and Dave's daughter Lily makes cakes, slices and pizzas that sit in the front window throughout the day. It's a cosy, friendly, intimate bakery with a decidedly family-feel. It's perfect for a sandwich in the sun or a cosy afternoon tea on a winter afternoon.
