Malt Mill Coffee and Bakery

Malt Mill Coffee and Bakery is a charming independent coffee shop and bakery in the Leicestershire village of Barwell. It was opened in 2021 by retired police officer Paul Baggot and his partner Donna.

Paul and Donna found themselves having to go into Leicester to get hold of a decent cup of coffee. And one day, they noticed an opportunity! They decided to move Donna’s business, Star Anise Beauty Therapy, to the top floor, and open a coffee shop of the ground floor of their Malt Mill Bank premises.

Malt Mill is all about sourcing the best local ingredients to create a small but high quality brunch and lunch menu. Their coffee and tea comes from St Martins Roastery in Great Glen. It’s ethically sourced, locally roasted and high quality. All teas are loose leaf and served in a pot with a China cup and it is, according to Paul, “tea as it should taste.”

They get their bread from Belvoir Bakery on the border of Leicestershire. Bacon and sausages come from nearby Woodhouse Farm, and the free-range eggs are from Fosse Field Farm. Additional meats come from Barwell Butchers and fruit and veg from Fresh and Fruity.

Brunches range from full cooked breakfasts to pancakes to vegan options. And lunches are simple sandwiches such as paninis, ciabattas or even a burger. There are plenty of sweet treats they bake on the premises too!

Come for a coffee and bacon roll, but make sure you stay for a homemade cake!
