The Grumpy Baker Castle Cove
The Grumpy Baker, aka owner-operator Michael Cthumer, on Deepwater Road is bringing locals, and those visiting the Castle Cove area the best in baked goods.
On the menu at The Grumpy Baker is a large selection of sourdough with options such as kibble rye, spelt rye and malt, roast garlic and olive, organic carrot, pumpernickel or walnut and fig. Good old bakery favourites haven’t been forgotten either; croissants, pastries, muffins, cheese sticks and of course pies and sausage rolls are available too. For something more substantial, try an oven-baked omelette with mint or feta, shakshuka or corn fritters with smoky relish and crisp prosciutto.
Where one ventures, others tend to follow. Hopefully the opening of The Grumpy Baker will be the start of a flourishing food scene for Castle Cove. So far it seems that the area has welcomed the bakery – the name of which comes from Cthumer’s wife, who thinks he is a little on the grumpy side – with open arms.
