Noak Bakehouse, Mantle Road

Noak Bakehouse is the new shop and cafe on Mantle Road, which, after a soft launch last weekend, starts its first day of trading tomorrow, from 7.30am. Here's the menu.

The team explain:

We are testing and expanding the menu throughout this month. by 27 November, everything will be in place.

We're really pleased with how the pastry and bread range have tasted and are keen to introduce more ASAP. watch for a bloomer made with dark ale (from Brockley Brewery!), a bialy, more danish pastries, more small cookies...

As for cafe/restaurant food, it's coming and we are certain you'll be happy. For breakfast and lunch, we're working to get the sandwich range up to 6 options (the ones we tried this weekend -- pork roast, grilled salami & cheese, vegan -- were all well-received); add house-made granola to our house-made bircher muesli; add a soup and a couple of substantial salads; introduce a brunch platter featuring both hot and deli-like items; and, notably, get cracking on a nice relaxed evening service.

We've already got beer and wine in-house, and license to sell til 11pm. In addition to the woodfire pizza, we'll have a slim menu of bar snacks, two starters, two mains, two desserts. The emphasis is on freshness, heartiness and value.
