Creme Bakehouse, Bangor

Over a month since this little place Creme Bakehouse opened in my local town of Bangor, Northern Ireland; and I’m finally getting round to blogging about it.  It has been on my to do list for a while since they opened their doors at the end of February.  I’ve been here a few times both sitting in and taking away (well I did have to do my research!).  Currently I’m sitting in eating a delicious Carmel and Vanilla Cake with a pot of tea. Boy I wish I had smell-a-vision, as it was set down in front of me by the lovely, bubbly and friendly Jade my mouth started to water!

I could tease you no longer by talking about it, I had to show you, even though this photo seriously does not do it justice!  I’m hoping later they will post a pic to their Facebook or Instagram so I can show you it properly!

And they did!

(I’m back again at half 11 on Friday night to add this photo, what a beauty!)

Unfortunately as I haven’t been able to do my research every day I only have a select number of my own photos to share with you and with the permission of one of the staff members I am sharing  photos of their own from their Facebook page.  However this does not mean I have been asked to do this blog post by Creme Bakehouse ; I have decided to share them with you as I think this new local business is fabulous!

Our coffee is ethically sourced and locally roasted. Our breads and patisseries are locally made- some with the influence of the Mediterranean and given a good ‘auld NI twist!’

‘Love coffee? Love home-baked breads? Love local produce? Love Creme!’

The first time I tried out Creme Bakehouse was with my mum, we popped in on a Sunday for a nice treat.  We went for their Raspberry and White Chocolate Scones (to die for I may add!) a pot of tea each and then a Peanut Butter and Dark Chocolate Square and a White Chocolate and Toasted Coconut Shortbread.

I was extremely impressed with the service; the staff are all very bubbly and friendly and extremely willing to help out. The design and decor is totally up my street; especially with the copper lighting and pipes.

These photos were captured before the mad rush began.

My next visit was actually the following Sunday with my other half, a treat for my birthday weekend and to fill me up before I went to work at the Quirky Wedding Fair.  This time we went for breakfast and, well, I couldn’t resist another of the White Chocolate and Raspberry Scones.

There is a good range to chose from on the menu, which are all locally made.

In addition to the menu there are also lots of sweet treats which range from one day to the next.

Not forgetting the handmade scones and breads; check out their Facebook page for more photos!

They also do Gluten Free goodies!

That morning I went for the Bacon Butty, the scone and a pot of tea.

The other half went for the Breakfast Soda and a Latte.

The next time I came along was for a takeaway; something to spoil a couple of my lovely mummies who were completing a course with me.  I knew they liked Raspberry and White Chocolate Scones so I knew they would love the ones from Creme Bakehouse. Which they did, they couldn’t get over the size of them and how good they tasted!

Which brings me to now where I am sitting eating cake and blogging away.  Spending my Friday afternoon doing something fun and yet productive! And I finally get a piece of yummy cake all to myself!

So if you haven’t yet tried out Creme Bakehouse I fully recommend you do; fresh, handmade and delicious food from a small, local business!
