As readers of my blog will know, I am mildly obsessed by good bread and where to buy it, partly a consequence of lockdown, which I think has made everyone focus on quality of food while restaurants have been closed and partly because I have always liked good fresh bread, almost better than anything (we had to fight for a loaf of fresh bread after lunch at school). So, I was pleased to get the latest issue of The Modern House Journal, which clearly shares this obsession (Bread Winner: London’s best bakeries | Journal | The Modern House). But it is not very strong on East London and misses out Breid, which supplies lots of local shops, and has become more and more popular over the last year, and my new favourite, Doh in Hackney Wick. They both deserve to be part of the pantheon.

A flat in our E15 street has just sold via the Modern House website. So coverage of bakeries from the wider East End should follow along soon!
Do you know the Bread Station Charles? Well worth le détour.
No, I don’t. Another trip…. Charles
E5 is a regular for us – an easy ride up the 277 bus. Breid is also lovely – have gone via your recommendation, though it takes a tad longer to get there. So many breads – so little time!
