Glenwood Bakery

Glenwood Bakery, owned by the renowned Adam Robinson, outplays any other bakery in Durban. Adam has been a chef in both France and London and now graces our sunny city with his first-class skills. The bakery is featured in our May issue, where we mention a few of the exceptional things you can expect from the space and its acclaimed owner. Following on, here we share the must-buy bread that should be on your shopping list and the breakfast that will change your life. The uniqueness of the bakery is drawn out by its simplicity and pared down menu. The food offering is designed to complement the bread that is baked on site. The focus is on exceptional tastes rather than excessive quantity. An early start is demanded, in order to snare one of the bakery’s now signature croissants. Think plenty of butter, warm out the oven and the best cure for mornings in general! The must-buy bread is of course the classic baguette or the 40% rye sourdoughs – handcrafted bread at its wholesome best. Visit the bakery’s website to view the all-important baking schedule or pop in to see Adam and his team at 398 Esther Roberts Road (previously Frere Road), Glenwood.
