Tucked away in a quiet street in Haggerston, The Better Health Bakery which is part of the Centre for Better Health, is "a charitable artisan bakery". In other words it is a 'social enterprise' that brings together a community "by promoting locally produced food and providing three month trainee placements to adults recovering from mental ill health".
Not only is the bakery a great programme but it is renowned for its incredible bread and cakes. They use only traditional methods and natural ingredients which makes for some good and honest loafs and cakes. Their sourdough loafs and pain au chocolat are divine. If you are feeling adventurous I would suggest trying the sweet pretzel - it's different and a pleasant surprise.
