Euphorium Bakery is an extremely busy and popular one. Heading here on a weekend, it was pretty full, even though it had seating on the ground level and additional seating on a lower level too. It seemed like it was one of those places that if you saw an empty seat, you should grab it, otherwise it would get taken up fairly quickly.
All orders are taken at the counter. The first counter fridge had the savoury items including sandwiches, salads, quiches, savoury rolls and pizza. The second fridge had all the tempting sweet pastries, cakes, cookies and pies.
Euphorium Bakery serves Teapigs teas and I chose the English Breakfast. It was served in a tall mug and not by the pot. It came with a small jug of milk on the side, balanced carefully on the saucer.
The spinach and ricotta roll was tasty and very moreish. Not one of those items where you can just have one bite. Once you’ve tried it, you want to finish the whole roll! The spinach and ricotta filling was encased in a lovely buttery flaky pastry.
The vegetarian quiche was a big portion. It was jam packed with broccoli florets, button mushrooms and tomato. The taste of the creamy cheesy filling went well with all the vegetables. The pastry was quite dense and slightly harder than I like.
There is a long wooden table with small plastic Perspex like stools as the main seating area. There is also some outdoor seating.
The staff are efficient and friendly. All the tables are constantly being cleaned, ready for more customers.
Euphorium Bakery is a good place to come for tea and a bite to eat.
