Last week, as a belated birthday treat, I was taken to The Almond Thief Bakery. Situated a stones throw from Dartington and a five minute drive from Totnes on a rather boring looking industrial park.
Thankfully what you get inside it’s far from boring. The sourdough bread is some of the best I’ve ever tasted and their cakes are to die for.
Chloe and I decided which coffees we were going to have whilst drooling over the cake selection. I went for a simple americano and Chloe had a creamy latte. As we were going out for lunch later we decided on sharing a slice of the almond brioche. The flavour was reminiscent of frangipane but with an orangey kick. I think marmalade was used in place of a raspberry jam. It was perfect in texture and flavour and I only wish that they would bring some of this with them to the farmers market! Another cake that caught my eye was the cardamom buns but sampling them will have to wait until next time.
