Two Magpies Bakery


Meringues, dusted with chocolate powder, are heaped on a pottery stand.  Chunky, multi-layered chocolate brownies ooze with dark brown bitter-sweetness. Exquisitely arranged fruits and berries nestle in the most delicate of pastry cases.

It’s no wonder that the window of the Two Magpies bakery draws crowds. Even the most jaded visitor from the capital becomes spellbound by the glories that emerge from this bakery’s busy kitchen.

Oh, and did I mention the bread?

Jim and Rebecca moved to Southwold to set up Two Magpies, a complete change from his previous career as an army bomb disposal expert. They tasked Spring with their branding, as well as commissioning Paul Crofts Studio to design the space.

The brand is well used, including traditionally sign written high on an exterior wall, printed on chocolate tabs, and gracing staff uniforms.

Featured in Elle Deco, Dezeen and many others, we reckon this fabulous Southwold bakery is a game changer.
