The Two Magpies (for more info click here ) is an artisan bakery in Southwold. and a little gem not to be missed. There are a few seats inside and one small table outside, altogether room for about 16. The seats were all taken so we waited till something became available, we sat at the table outside.
The coffee was excellent and accompanied by the most delicious buttery plum frangipane tart! Well worth the wait.
If I was staying in Southwold I would probably be in there every day. Everything is available to eat in or take away.
There are GF options available.
A few passers by stopped to look in the window and commented on the prices being too high. I thought the prices we justified given the quality. Maybe they were used to something mass produced from a chain.
I returned late in the afternoon and most things were sold. I left with a chocolate hazelnut brownie.
Beautiful selection of sour dough breads
and savoury treats,
Supersize (rose and pistachio?) meringues and triple choc roundies, so spoilt for choice!
On leaving I noticed that the tiled floor at the entrance tells what this was before it was a bakery.
We climbed over 200 steps to the top of the lighthouse which should have helped to work off some of the calories.
