Greenwich is developing a flavour for food served straight from the bread oven. Here are a few of the places that have caught our nose...
Red Door on Turnpin Lane is the place to go for sweet baked bites, like scones served with a cream tea and a selection of award-winning cakes. They know what's good for them too, as they also offer gluten free, wheat free and vegan options. The record player, quality Monmouth Coffee and delicious sandwiches with artisan bread make Red Door a good place to hole up on a rainy day.
Paul Rhodes Bakery has been baking fresh, artisanal bread on King William Walk since opening in 2008, using their lovingly-made bread for tasty sandwiches and pizzas. For those with a sweeter tooth, Rhodes offers decadent chocolate brownies and cupcakes as well as light pastries, perfect to go with their Fairtrade coffee and tea.

Opening last month in the immaculately restored buildings at 20-22 Greenwich Church Street, Peyton and Byrne gives Greenwich another place specialising in homemade, quality baked treats, such as their Chelsea Buns, selling like hot cakes (sorry), loaves fresh from the oven, and lots of little cakes and pastries to go with their teas and flavourful coffee blends.

And sitting pretty on Trafalgar Road, the lovely French delicattessen L'Artisan serves relaxed, homemade dishes. Hot from the oven are beautiful, traditional pies like chicken and mushroom and French-inspired French mustard and mince beef pie; they also prepare quiches all made from scratch in the deli, with vegetables from the local greengrocer, vegetarian, cheese and veg or meat, veg and cheese options made. To finish off, L'Artisan serves one of the best creme brulee's in Greenwich...
