There are few things better in live than the smell of freshly baked goods in the morning.
But you’ll have to get in line to get your hands on arguably some of the best sweet and savoury treats in Bristol from the city’s newest bakery.
Farro Bakery has opened in St Pauls this week, having long been a firm favourite at the city’s markets.
At the bakery in Brunswick Square, opposite Fabric Land, people can find a selection of freshly-made bread, delicious pastries including pain au chocolat and pasteis de nata, sandwiches and granola.
Speaking to Bristol Live, Farro founder Bradley Tapp said the new opening has been “really good so far”, adding: “We weren’t shouting about it because we wanted time to work out some logistics but today (Friday) has been fantastic.
“This is our first retail venture and we’ve never had a shop before. It’s been hard work.”
Farro makes all of its products on site and so customers are able to see the bakers in motion.
Baker Fiona McKail said: “It’s nice as bakers to be able to see our customers as we work. Before it was separate, but now we can see them buying our products.”

Coffee is also available at Farro, with beans sourced from Triple Co. Roast in Stokes Croft.
The bakery’s head of coffee Jack Hudspith said: “The roasters are good friends and they now come in here for a coffee. It’s great – it makes me feel like I’m doing a good job.”
Farro has been long established in the market scene and still makes weekly appearances at Whiteladies Road Farmers Market and the Tobacco Factory Market.
The products selling in the bakery are market favourites, but they have lots of new products in development and they hope to continue evolving the business.
“This is us now,” said Bradley, “We will still do the markets but it’s nice to now have a front door, a counter and a place people can come to every day.”
Considering it only opened on May 28, Farro is already looking like it will become a huge success.
Farro Bakery can be found at 1 Brunswick Square and is open Tuesday to Friday 8am to 4pm.
They are also at Whiteladies Road Farmers Market every Saturday from 8.30am to 2pm and the Tobacco Factory Market every Sunday from 10am to 2.30pm.
