A micro bakery fuelling adventure in the heart of Hayle
From my converted garage, I make small batch, naturally leavened and slowly fermented breads, as well as some sweet treats too!
Everything is vegan and my aim is to provide the local community with delicious food that is kind to our environment and our bellies.
You can find me at Hayle Market every Friday, or you can also pre order to collect on Fridays from the bakery too.
Look out for monthly sourdough pizza nights and pop ups!
OUR MICRO STORY
In 2018, I left my job as an Early Years Teacher in Leeds for new challenges and adventures in Canada. I was very lucky to have opportunities in bakeries with exceptionally kind, skilled and inspirational people making amazing products. In these very special places, I learnt new skills, gained experience and I found what I was most passionate about...bread.
We found a new home in Hayle, Cornwall, on our return to the UK and I began working at a lovely bakery on the beach and spending some time at the Artisan School of Food doing an Advanced Bread course. Noticing a need locally to provide lovely fresh natural bread, I decided to take the plunge and open my own microbakery, as I’d often imagined having an outlet in which I can contribute positively to our earth and environment and indulge my passion for the deliciousness that is slow fermented breads and treats. This is how Dodo Bakery came to be! Since opening, we have moved homes and the bakery has moved from our small kitchen, to our converted garage just round the corner from Hayle Quay.
Why the Dodo Bird?
I love anything 'dough'!
The exotic but extinct dodo bird has Mauritian roots just like me! I’ve chosen to name my microbakery after the Dodo as it has a double meaning - my mission is both to reduce food chain impact on the planet and to create delicious tropical influenced treats. I'd like the flavours of some of my products to make people feel like they're taking a break somewhere a little more alluring.
The bakery is 100% vegan and I want to ensure everything I do looks after the planet, so hopefully by buying my bread, you'll be part of a small chain that is preventing other animals (like the good old fat dodo bird) from becoming extinct.

HOW TO PRE ORDER
You can pre order your bread and treats, which you can then collect from the bakery every Friday.
Please get in touch via the contact form if you are a business and are interested in any of the products.
3. Pick Up
Pick up from the bakery directly from our bakery hatch, or if we're out at the market from the secure bread cupboard. You'll receive a code to unlock your bread!
If you love the same bread each week, you can always subscribe! I can create a 4 week subscription so you don't need to worry about reordering your bread every week.
You can order a minimum of 4 of the same from the selection below, any week you fancy! Order by Tuesday @ 8pm.
All products are made in a kitchen that uses soy, nuts, sesame seeds, tree nuts and gluten. Please feel free to contact me regarding allergies. Please also note the vegan butter used is Flora Plant butter, which contains legumes.
