If you have allergies or food intolerances this isn't the place for you! Staff members most unhelpful and they stated all sandwiches are pre-prepared, therefore unable to cater for customers with allergies. Not willing to make a sandwich for a customer with allergies. Also, equally disturbing, we witnessed a member of staff dropping a sandwich on the floor; she picked... More

Had heard good things about this café, and used to work in Slaithwaite many years ago, so thought I'd take a trip down memory lane......the day couldn't have been better, lovely warm sunshine to stroll along the canal to the cafe, but we arrived about 11.40 so breakfast had finished and lunch serving hadn't begun, so we were in a...

The bread was really nice we got a loaf and a small bread roll thing with meat and cheese and spinach in it but it's came to over £6 to take out. Unfortunately it will only be a treat once every few months for us.

I had coffee and a savoury danish pastry; Mrs I&G had beetroot soup and our daughter had a vegan dish. My danish pastry was so tasty I bought one to take home. The cakes looked good and the bread was fabulous - again we took a loaf home and it tasted as good the next day.

Ok, first of all I have to say I love this place. Great food, bread, coffees, teas, bread and awesome bacon sandwiches. But there are two problems which actually exacerbate each other. The time taken to prepare even just two or three hot drinks is painfully slow. And all this waiting time time means tables are occupied. Here is the... More

We've tried a couple of times before to get in to The Handmade Bakery, but it's always so busy!!! So on this visit to Slaithwaite we were determined to get in!!! We went early to give breakfast a try and were not disappointed. We were lucky enough to get a table where we could all sit together (there were 6... More

The Bakery is located canal side in Slaithwaite on the walk to Marsden. I'm a regular at the Handmade and love the bread baked here and the Dark wood coffee sold. Very popular with the locals especially for early morning bread and lunches.Its nothing like a traditional deli with its informal seating. The staff are always busy,happy and friendly and... More

Went in for Brunch prior to watching our daughter do Children in Need Tapathon with her dance school. We had bean stew & glorious celeriac, chilli & cheddar soup. Proper, wholesome food & bread in a great space. Will definitely come again to cafe & will be popping over from Holmfirth regularly for their proper bread.
