Baking of all kinds is the rage now but not everyone has the time or the knack of turning out the perfect loaf or a beautiful cake. So we found a few of the expert bakeries in Leeds which daily do the job for us.

Bagel Nash
This is where you will find some of the finest tasting bagels. The bakery began in Leeds and now has several branches in the city plus outlets in Huddersfield, Hull, York, Manchester and Derby. The bakery uses a long fermentation cycle and only natural ingredients with no preservatives or added fat or oils in their bagels. And the fillings are energy packed: try cream cheese and fresh fruits; breakfast bagel of scrambled egg, hot crispy bacon topped with tomato; a ham and cheddar club; traditional smoked salmon and cream cheese or just simply toasted with butter.
122 North Street, 0113 293 0393

The Street Lane Bakery
This is a relatively new bakery, serving a wide variety of baked goods, all strictly kosher and vegetarian too. Open daily and on Saturday nights for fresh hot bagels until 3am Sunday.
99 Street Lane, Leeds LS17 6HQ.
Find out more on their Facebook page.

Not just an award-winning bread bakery but a patisserie and chocolatier serving a wide range of bread, pastry, cakes and chocolate. There’s a really useful online service with freshly baked bread delivered by courier, lightly baked, bagged and ready to freeze or to go straight into your oven to finish off. Check out their fresh sandwich menu with free delivery.
1 Ninelands Lane, Garforth, Leeds 0113 287 0055



Leeds Bread Co-op
An artisan bakery passionate about sourdough and slowly fermented breads, using organic and locally produced ingredients baked for delivery to your home or business and for sale at dedicated outlets as well as local markets. They have also launched bread baking classes. Join their useful bread subscription scheme and never be without a delicious loaf. Check out the range of breads and aims of the co-op at their website.
0113 262 5155

Sunshine Bakery
This bakery is headed up by David Bennett who serves handmade tasty treats daily ranging from cupcakes and truffles to flavoured breads, sandwiches and fresh soups. Find the bakery in Harrogate Road, Chapel Allerton.
182 Harrogate Road, 0113 268 0656

Costellos Family Craft Bakery
Everything is handmade from scratch with ingredients from local suppliers, independents whenever possible. And when the professional bakers here say everything is prepared by hand they mean it – pastry is rolled by hand with rolling pins; fillings including fruit and vegetables are peeled and chopped by hand and meats are hand cut. On the menu here is fresh bread, sweet and savoury pies, cakes and slices, quiches and tarts. They offer baking classes too.
61 Otley Road. 0113 278 7847

The Blueberry Bakery
This bakery in Farsley is all about beautifully decorated cakes and desserts, ideal for parties and weddings. All the cakes are handmade with a decent range of flavours from rich fruit and double chocolate to banoffee and tropical fruit.
