We’ve been working with our talented friends Cavendish Studios, a local design studio that shares our passion for craft and sustainability to re furbish our Queen’s Park Bakery. All of the materials we’ve used for the shop are natural and eco-friendly, with the idea that our fresh bread, pastries and cakes become the main decoration.

We caught up with Joel, one of the partners at Cavendish studios, to ask him a round of quick fire questions – read below to find out his love for cinnamon buns and gardening.
