The Flour Pot Bakery

The Flour Pot Bakery

The Flour Pot Bakery grew out of founder Oli Hyde’s commitment to all things artisanal and delicious in food so he started his own Brighton cafe chain and bakery. Years working as a Brighton restaurant chef and then running a high-end catering business refined his understanding of the importance of quality ingredients to the fundamentals of great cookery. With that in mind, he also recognised that making the best bread is the ultimate demonstration of the craft of food preparation and production.

Breakfast like a king

The Sydney Street branch The Flour Pot Bakery offers a Brighton breakfast from 8am, and include dishes such as the famous breakfast bun with Hillbilly Sauce, with your choice of Portobello mushroom, sausage and egg or bacon. For something a little lighter go for the Bircher Muesli with honey, apples and Blueberries and choice of Greek yogurt or organic milk, or the crushed avocado and Philadelphia cheese on sourdough toast (extremely Instagrammable!).

  4. Angela Simmonds

    I am a big fan of Flour Pot and am giving them 4 purely on price.

    The bread is amazing – I love the soft white muffins when I can get them – and the doughnuts are one of my favourite treats.

    Worth mentioning their raw pizza bases which go down a treat in our house on a Wednesday.
