OUR HISTORY AND HERITAGE

How it Started

In the 1990s, Gail Mejia brought the best bakers in town together to bake for London’s top chefs and restaurants. Our wholesale business, The Bread Factory, which was named ironically because it has always exclusively specialised in handmade, traditional artisan baking, continues to thrive, serving top restaurants and discerning customers.

Our first GAIL’s bakery opened in London’s Hampstead High Street in 2005. Today, we have bakeries in neighbourhoods in and around London, Oxford, Brighton and beyond.

We bake fresh, handmade bread, pastries and cakes every day, served with our carefully-sourced house blend speciality coffee. We take great pleasure in using the best ingredients we can find for food and drink, using seasonal ingredients from suppliers we trust.

Though we’ve grown over the years, our philosophy has remained the same: to make good food that people love, and create bakeries that people want to keep coming back to. Second, only to the love for our mother doughs, we take the most joy from daily chats with our regular customers, many of whom have been with us since we started.

We hope you’ll join us soon.
