Beloved artisan bakery Astrid is opening its first permanent shop in north London

If you’ve ever had one of Astrid Bakery’s ‘breakfast boxes’, you’ll understand the hype all too well. Featuring a rotating selection of breads, cakes and pastries, each and every item is packed with the expert training of founder and Le Cordon Bleu-trained baker Charlotte O’Kelly. 

And now, excitingly, Astrid Bakery is opening its first permanent shop. Having been delivery-only for three years, the small batch artisan bakery brand will open a physical outlet in Muswell Hill, north London.

The new shop will have all the usual ‘breakfast box’ faves plus stuff like celebration cakes and fancy viennoiserie. It’ll apparently serve up all the Astrid signature bakes like pistachio croissants, cinnamon buns, passionfruit meringue croissant, Italian hot chocolate cruffins and stripy chocolatines, as well as hot drinks.

Got you drooling yet? Astrid Bakery’s new shop will do all that and more, offering both takeaway and delivery.

All this is expected to open in early 2024. Follow Astrid Bakery on Instagram here for updates.
