Romeo’s Bakery, Islington: It’s Open!

The Hype The gluten-free community has been waiting a long time for Romeo’s Bakery. Excitement has been building ever since we first caught a glimpse of the stunning pastries and patisserie goodies on their website. My original post about Romeo’s is the most visited page of all time on this blog, and there have been countless threads on the gluten-free forums asking well…what is going on?! I have a source, a close friend who lives just across from Upper Street and has been giving me regular updates on Romeo’s progress. She told me excitedly that Romeo’s was finally open, and she had gone in and been given a free scone to sample, and did I want one too, and when was the soonest I could visit?!

Romeo’s Gluten-Free Bakery – OH GOOD LORD

Romeo’s Gluten-Free Bakery – OH GOOD LORD It’s September 30th, 2013. It can’t be too much longer until Romeo’s Gluten-free Bakery finally opens (I’m not counting down the days or anything…). The photos on the website look so good, I am genuinely considering moving to Islington to be within walking distance. We have had the wonderful WAGfree bakery in London for a while, (and I have been really happy to see their cakes in Selfridge’s recently, as I don’t make it down to Brixton very often), but it will be fantastic to have what looks to be the complete gluten-free experience available so centrally on Upper Street. What’s more, as the bakery will be 100% gluten-free, it should be a safe haven for coeliacs. A friend of mine lives nearby, and is under strict instructions to call me as soon as Romeo’s Bakery opens its doors. From the website: ‘Romeo’s Gluten Free Bakery will soon be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner serving coffee, sweet treats, salads, sandwiches and savoury dishes.’ *salivates* P.S. They’re hiring!
