How have the past 18 months felt for Wildcraft Bakery and Café? How do you feel to be coming out of the lockdowns?

Excited! We had to adapt fast to the first lockdown, but we managed it really well, our team really pulled together so that we could switch to home delivery for our usual cafe customers. We also began a national delivery service so that coeliacs from all over the country can enjoy our delicious baked goods.

It was great when we could finally open up our cafe, with plenty of precautions against COVID of course! Having outside space meant that people who wanted to take things more slowly as we go into the ‘new normal’ can eat outside, which meant the heatwave was great news!

What does the support from the local community mean to you?

Brilliant! We love that we’re building a big coeliac family in North Leeds, as well as feeling like all our hard work is really starting to pay off with the great things happening in the area. The junction box art has been an amazing project to be part of, and we’re excited about lots of new community events that are coming up – speaking of which, we’ve got a farmers market coming to the precinct in November!

Have you got any exciting plans for the future or maybe some new items that you’re planning to add to the menu?

Well, our bakers are very excited about Halloween and Christmas – one of them is very disappointed that not all the fairs and festivals are going ahead, but they’re coming up with lots of ideas for spooky spiced cake pops, and delightful Christmas themed goods.
