The Fresh Fruit Cake is outstanding and the sandwiches superb. Choose from Southwestern Turkey, Cinnamon French Toast, Club Sandwich and Harvest Ham Sandwich. In addition to chocolate and fruit-flavoured mousse, there are freshly baked puffs and pizzas on offer too. One of the best places to buy Christmas cakes and puddings, Baker's Inn increases their stock during the festive season to meet the huge demand. School and college students love Baker's Inn because their pocket money stretches a long way here. A great place for a quick bite or takeaway.
