Our story began in the 1990s when Gail Mejia brought the best bakers in town together to bake for London’s top chefs. Our wholesale business, The Bread Factory, which was named ironically because it has always exclusively specialised in handmade, traditional artisan baking, continues to thrive, serving top restaurants and discerning customers.
Our first GAIL’s bakery opened in London’s Hampstead High Street in 2005. Today, we have 38 bakeries in neighbourhoods in and around London. We bake fresh, handmade bread, pastries and cakes every day, served with our house blend coffee, and we take great pleasure in using the best ingredients we can find to compliment them with seasonal breakfasts, lunches and afternoon teas.
