The Great British Bake Off in St Martin's Square
3rd September 2017
St Martin's Coffee Roasters
If you're more inspired by the Great British Bake Off to eat baked goods than to create them yourself, then head on over to St Martin's Square. We've got you covered with all manner of delights. St Martin's Coffee Roasters has been providing delicious cakes to Leicester for years. Accompanied by their home-roasted coffee, the daily selection of traybakes, cakes and muffins is a feast for the senses. Their savoury selection is not to be missed either, with a range of delicious breads that will keep you going all day. We recommend the avo on toast - a delightful treat.
Our newest coffee shop and cafe, Kai has a range of menus that would be more than suitable to grace Paul Hollywood's table. They have a number of treats for those with special dietary requirements, including vegan friendly bars and a selection of gluten free offerings. With liberal use of fresh and dried fruit, Kai's snacks are deliciously filling but relatively guilt free. We recommend their stacked pancakes. Does that count as a Bake Off item? The floury treats on the TV series seems to grow more all encompassing all the time...
Produce in their in-house Laboratory, Gelato Village use the same high quality ingredients for their selection of baked goods as they use in their gelato. Recently, the sourcing of a high quality sheep's ricotta means that Leicester is getting to enjoy authentic Sicilian Cannoli. Their range of Italian cakes and pastries also extends to delicious Gianduia Crostata and more. We particularly enjoy the fluffly, light Mimosa cake. It is made with PGI Sfusato lemons, shipped especially for Gelato Village direct from the Amalfi Coast. The fruit is full of flavour and so is the cake! It may be Italian in flavour, but it certainly makes our list of Great British Bakes!
