Bakery - Edit

A small bakery with a little sit in area. It usually offers at least one vegetarian and one vegan pastry daily, with a selection of bakery goods you can take away. These are both pretty good.

Kazooie and veggie roll - Edit

A bakery that stocks a few veggie options, cheaply priced and ideal for an on the go lunch.
When I was there, many goods on offer were vegetarian and at least 1 (the malaysian curry puff, a stuffed pastry delight containing carrot, peas and other lentilly type things flavoured with a mild curry) was vegan.

Offers speciality breads, sausage roll type veg delights (veg roll for example is a puff pastry containing lentils, grains, mushrooms and thyme), savoury is a feature, as well as delicious cakes, buns, scones and coffee or tea.
Generally just over the £2.20 mark per item, cheaper to take away than sit in.

Decor is quirky and cafe is small. Kind of like an indie Gregg's, but kind of not!

I also took some sourdough pizzas home to eat later. A cheap way to get filling food. Reminds me of my dads daily trip to Jeffers for lunch, same idea I guess.

Do try!

Quality + Taste + Atmosphere = The Perfect Bakery - Edit

I only gave four stars because I can't give 5! While it is not all vegetarian, the majority is and the have loads of vegan stuff! It deserves 10 stars to be honest. I was introduced to Bread and Banjo by a friend who knew I was vegan. I could not have been any happier to find this bakery - vegan or not! Everything is made in the store, just up the stairs, with fresh, whole ingredients. They are constantly experimenting with pastries and sweets but always keep the best sellers around too! Whether you're looking for a healthy lunch (it varies but they offer unique salads, noodle dishes, quinoa and veggies, etc), a fresh loaf of bread, a pastry ( i LOVE the Malaysian curry puffs), a healthy snack (their energy balls are addicting, and taste a bit like ferrero rocher) or you just want to satisfy your sweet tooth (can you say vegan cupcakes, peanut butter cups, and fudge?!) Bread & Banjo is the place for you! BONUS - they often have people in playing music (hence the name) and are now open for a few hours on Sundays! Enjoy!!!

Pros: High quality Food, Atmosphere, Diverse Options

Spinach, feta & hazelnut quiche - Edit

Heaven! Food just doesn't get any better than this! I've passed this place the last couple of years and never called in - my biggest life regret so far! Recently I stopped at Bread & Banjo and had the spinach, feta and hazelnut quiche and a coffee. Amazing, tasty food. Coffee was fabulous too. Everything in this bakery is hand made. It's unreal just how flavourful the food is. On another visit I sampled the vegetarian pastry roll with side salads - scrumptious. I will be back to this cafe/ bakery soon. Unrivalled deliciousness.
