Manouche is an everyday craft bakery and bistro which celebrates the finesse of classical French cooking, while retaining a flair and passion for local ingredients and culinary traditions. Inspired by the eclectic ‘Manouche’ style of jazz from which our bakery takes its name, and based on the bouchons and esteemed cafes of Lyon to the bistros of Paris, Manouche is an homage to rustic, traditional old-world bakeries and bistros. Those with an authentic love of food will find music in every dish we serve.
Manouche Craft Bakery makes exclusive use of organic grains sourced from Doves Farm Mill in the UK. We use nothing but natural products, and insist on purchasing ethically.
