Baker & Spice

This all looks delicious and it was - but it cost almost 10 quid?! Is that not a bit much for:
  • a blueberry muffin
  • a pain au chocolat
  • a loaf of seed-y bread
  • a fruit tart-y thing
In CDN$ that is over $20.00. Baker & Spice is located on a few posh high streets and is definitely for the slummy mummies who can afford to eat there after pushing their designer prams to pick up some expensive dry cleaning, get an over priced mani and pedi and then head to the organic grocer to drop another few hundred quid on the week's groceries.

Delicious fresh bread and great French pastry should be affordable to the masses, non? Parisians don't go broke buying their morning croissant. And the pain au chocolat tastes the same as the Tesco ones which cost something around 70p.

Don't mind me, I am just complaining again about the lack of decent bakeries in London. I should pull my uncle and aunt out of retirement to come show this town what an amazing loaf of Sicilian or Calabrese bread tastes like. Mr. & Mrs Tempo Bakery - you up for it?
