Buttercup Bakery owners take a new direction in their business journey with the opening of a café in Haverhill




A new artisan bakery café has opened in Haverhill, representing an exciting new business chapter for its owners.

The husband-and-wife team behind the Buttercup Bakery brand has expanded into the purpose-built site at the MENTA business centre on Hollands Road.

Over the past few weeks they have been creating a stylish look to their new business space.

Brad and Suzanne already have many loyal customers as they are regulars at food markets in the region.

Yesterday they had a launch party, where visitors were able enjoy some of the delights offered by the bakery, such as a freshly baked bagel, their famed coffee and walnut cake and an espresso coffee.

From their new home, the couple will be selling hand-crafted breads, bagels, pastries, and a selection of sandwiches.

Paul Vella, MENTA’s property manager, said: “The new site has several newly opened retail units as well as our existing business tenants – we are all looking forward to the aroma of freshly baked bread and the extra visitors the new café will bring to the business centre.”

Brad said: “The new site is something we have considered for some time and now we feel is the best time to join the growing business communities based around the Hollands Road area, we will have a deliberately very chilled environment, allowing for workers to stop off for lunch, check emails and refuel on a fresh espresso coffee.”

The Buttercup Bakery brand enjoys an existing and enthusiastic customer base built-up over many years, having been a regular at Haverhill market and is known across Essex and other food focused markets.

Suzanne said: “We are putting some finishing touches to our new café menu and are looking forward to welcoming new customers to our business and letting them try the Buttercup range.”
