Theme Day: Bakeries, Barbakan

Bakeries is this month's topic for City Daily Photo theme day. Happy May Day everyone- bread for the workers!

Barbakan Delicatessen opened in the late 1960s, with its roots in Krakow, Poland. Stefan and Joanna Najduch have been in charge for over two decades and oversee the bakery's 15,000 loaves of bread a week.  Barbakan has over 50 different types of bread ranging from tomato bread to Norlander rye via the popular Chorlton sourdough. Follow Barbakan on Twitter @BarbakanDeli .


Each loaf is individually hand crafted and baked on the sole of the oven – no tins. This not only improves the appearance and texture of the bread, but also ensures it is full of flavour. Breads are made using traditional baking methods and authentic European recipes using over 9 tonnes of highest grade flour a week. Only the finest ingredients are used which are free from artificial improvers or preservatives.

  1. My father was a European-trained baker - I'm sure the breads made at Barbakan's are every bit as good as his were!

  14. I was inspired some time ago for your pictures on a slant and took a few whilst visiting my daughter in Eastbourne, also in Lewes.

    Keep up the good work Chrissy. I would love to know who won the mayoral election but have to get to bed now - tiring day nearly completing our move, haggle over dates, should go through Tuesday with hopes
