A popular Preston cafe is expanding and opening its doors at the new Bishopgate Gardens site on Ormskirk Road. Brew + Bake was established in 2018 in Preston Markets and since the move it has expanded to include work space, as well as community and event space that can also accommodate meetings. We went to check out their delicious new menu and the exciting events the team has in store.
“It’s really exciting,” said Julie Fausset, owner of Brew + Bake, on launch day. “It’s great that my daughter Rebecca and I are doing this together. We’ve had the opportunity to expand the business and do the things we were hoping to do in a bigger space.
The interior is modern and sleek with booths and tables in the cafe, with space to dine and drink outside as well as inside. Brew + Bake retained elements of their brand from their previous location, including the custom concrete countertops created by Julie’s husband, and added new elements.
“We wanted to make the space accessible to everyone. People are welcome to come in and use their laptops in our cafe and workspace. Some of the residents living above us work from home, so rather than feeling isolated they can come to work here and chat with other people.
