NEW OPENING OF THE BEARDED BAKER BOOSTS GASTROMIC HUB IN CANONMILLS
The Bearded Baker has finally opened! You can find them at 46 Rodney Street in Canonmills- an area quickly becoming a gastromic hub in Edinburgh. Rowan Walker, the Bearded Baker, and his fiancée and business partner Julia Wayper opened the first café under the Bearded Baker brand on the 31st of January 2017.
Serving bagels, doughnuts, bread, soup, speciality cakes, coffee and more, the café will be the latest addition to a string of artisan, high-end cafes, restaurants, bars and shops in the area which already boasts The Marshmallow Lady, The Beer Hive, Sugar Daddy, The Chocolate Café, Earthy’s and The Other Place.
All of the produce will be made on the Bearded Baker premises by Rowan fresh every morning.
Rowan initially juggled his job as a researcher for a political think tank with baking, where he sold directly to cafes and restaurants in Edinburgh. As demand grew and grew, he quickly gave up his job to focus on baking. Selling to more than a dozen outlets directly in the city with hand made, home made bagels and doughnuts from his home kitchen, Rowan began looking for the ideal spot to take the business to the next stage.
Now that the store is open they’re sure to go from strength to strength!
