Bakery and Café
M56, Junction 12; 6 minutes
Free WiFi for visitors
Vegetarian or vegan options
Parking available onsite
If you crave the homely aroma of fresh-baked bread, follow your nose off the M56 and into the Devonshire Bakery on Frodsham's pretty high street. Exercise self-restraint as you decide which artisan breads and baguettes to plump for. Sourdough, wholemeal, and spelt and honey are all contenders, with recipes honed over five generations.
The beef and pork pies are famously good - our personal pick is the steak and stilton creation. Pick up a spiced chutney sausage roll or golden-crusted pie for later, or a gift box of handmade chocolates if passing at Christmas or Easter.
There’s a cosiness to the interior, adorned with art, or grab a pavement table in the summer sun. Tuck into your freshly prepared sandwich du jour with abandon and sip on your locally roasted Jaunty Goat Coffee as the outside world goes by.
There’s a free car park nearby so make time to browse the local craft and antiques centre whose old farm buildings are now host to a run of alluring vintage shops.
