Glenwood Bakery Glenwood (Durban)
398 Esther Roberts Road,
The Glenwood Bakery is the new venture of acclaimed British chef, Adam Robinson. In this open plan bakery and cafe he produces artisanal breads. The cafe's offering is related to the bread; sandwiches, coffees and freshly squeezed orange juice.
Artisanal bread is bread which is hand formed, the doughs are slow fermented and, usually, the ingredients sourced for having the less additives.
So, at The Glenwood Bakery they use stone milled, unbleached, GMO free flour. They use a 100% organic rye flour for our 100% rye.
The breads are made according to traditional recipes and the aim is entirely to improve the taste of the various types of loaves which are produced.
They make, for instance, ciabattas, baguettes, batards, sourdoughs such as 40% rye and wholemeal sourdough and have become somewhat famous for the butter rich croisssants, pains au chocolat and pains au raisin produces early in the morning.
For fun, they make homemade ice creams too.
If you enjoy a quiet cup of coffee on your way to work, accompanied by something like Bach's Cello Suites or Faure's Requiem, then stopping with them might be as pleasing to your sensibilities as it is for them to work the open plan bakery and cafe.
For lunches they make things like sandwiches and bread salads (the menu varies according to the baker's whims), you can have excellent coffees and freshly squeezed orange juice.
On Saturdays they make Eggs Benedict as it should be made.
