A Brief History of Dunns Bakery
Behind The Scenes of The Bakery
Dunns Bakery has a huge team of expert bakers and staff who, every day, provide for big crowds of local customers. Without our Team, Dunns Bakery wouldn’t be the professional establishment it is today.
Regular visitors to the shop may be surprised to hear that behind the scenes at Dunns Bakery in North London, Crouch End is a myriad of rooms in which our experienced and trained craftspeople make our products from scratch using the finest ingredients to bake everything fresh, everyday!
Upstairs, our full time cake decorator Neil finishes our spectacular birthday, wedding and other celebration cakes. All our cakes are individually made. Christopher Freeman tells a story of how he visited a cake decoration company and found that the operatives wrote the names on the cake whilst they were travelling along a conveyor belt!!! No such thing in our cake decorating department! Neil takes time to make sure that we meet your expectations for a cake which really creates the occasion.
Patisserie, Confectionery and Bread
Our selected array of tempting delicacies are made with only the finest and freshest ingredients, produced to Dunn’s own traditional recipes.
Downstairs we have 3 separate departments:
Andrea & Sarah make all our fantastic cream cakes and finish the fancy cakes which have you drooling in our shop window. If you haven’t tried the fruit flans (portion or whole) you have been missing out
In the confectionery bakery, Aidry leads a team which produces a wide range of sweet and savoury treats including our world famous doughnuts and sausage rolls - now including our incredible vegan sausage rolls!
Our bread bakery has ancient bread ovens which help to give our bread that traditional look and taste. Keller leads the team of very experienced bakers who are able to produce a variety of breads that you just wouldn’t get anywhere else. All baked fresh every single morning 7 days a week.
Sandwiches Rolls and Salads
Also upstairs is our sandwich, roll and catering department where our staff lead by Nikki create delicious combinations for the tastiest take away in town. Our vegetables, salad and fruit is delivered (or collected) daily so everything is fresh for you. This is where sausages and bacon from Morleys Butchers in Crouch End are cooked and put into rolls and sandwiches; there is nothing as good as our bacon roll for breakfast
