Bread & Circus
Bread & Circus in Daventry is an artisan bakery and pizzeria situated in a 400-year-old building.
It’s a family business dedicated to three key values: fresh, exceptional and artisan. As soon as you enter you are greeted by the smiling faces of staff who are clearly proud to be part of such a great business.
Expect naturally leavened sourdough bread, baked goods and fine pastries. This bakery/pizzeria is also famous for its cruffins – a cross between a croissant and a muffin.
During the day, go for your bread and pastries and stop for lunch, which we did and enjoyed a lovely savoury tart with a simple salad and cup of coffee. In the evening, visit for excellent sourdough pizzas.
A few shops away you will find ‘Sheaf Street Health Store’, run by the same owners. It’s an Aladdin’s cave of health and wholefood goods with a vegan coffee shop at the back where cookery classes and demonstrations are held. Upstairs is a studio – home to pilates, yoga and meditation classes.
