“Not just a bakery anymore”

The Ashbourne Gingerbread Shop
Ranked #62 of 98 Restaurants in Ashbourne
Restaurant details
Reviewed August 1, 2014

When I worked of a Saturday (early) morning as the "boy" in the bakery, on the ovens, we supplied bread, cakes and biscuits fresh made to the shop. Now, the ovens are gone and the shop belongs to Birds. The little "tea shop" has taken over as the main attraction and as a venue for coffee of a morning with perhaps a toasted teacake or similar, you'll be joining a lot of locals as they rest from shopping.

It's uncomplicated and provides a pleasant street-view rest as you watch the rest of Ashbourne go by.

on visiting ashbourne we decided to go for a cup of tea ,ashbourne is covered quiet well with cafes but on this occasion we decided to call in at the gingerbread shop and cafe this is a small cafe that serves savouries along with chips or just savouries on there own but we decided to have a vanilla slice which has three layers of cream with icing on the top ,these are the best vanilla slices i have tasted ,this cafe is well worth a visit,does get very busy but when you sell quality products it is worth waiting for

A delightful bakery and cafe with a long history & tradition. They really made use if the space by putting in side seats that allowed you to see across the shop. The cafe was extremley clean and service was excellent. Whilst we only stopped for coffee and cakes there was a good choice on the menu for both a light lunch and something a little more substantial. The portions looked a good size and it seemed really good value for money.
