The best quality ingredients, care and time make our food taste better naturally

We are an independent artisan bakery, baking the best bread, cakes and pastries we can for the people of Enfield and beyond. Our mission is to delight our customers with exceptional quality products and great service.

Our baked goods and take-away lunches are all made from scratch using the best quality ingredients. Artificial additives have no place in our bakery. Skill, care and time make our products taste better naturally. So you know exactly what you are eating, and where it comes from.

To accompany our baked goods we have selected a range of deli items made by producers who are passionate about their craft: farmhouse cheeses, freshly-roasted coffee, craft beers, wines, preserves and more.


From Monday 30th March 2020 until further notice, our shop opening hours will be as follows:

Monday to Saturday 9am to 3pm (closing 12.30-1pm for cleaning & team change)

Sunday 9am to 1pm

To order baked goods and other essentials including milk & eggs, please visit our online shop.


Orders can now be placed & paid for on our online shop for collection the next day OR home delivery on Mon, Weds & Fri. Please bear with us as this is all very new to us & it has been put together very quickly. It might need tweaking!

This is how it should work:

1. Click & collect:
Products can be ordered & paid online for collection from the shop the next day if the order is placed by 3pm (click & collect). E.g. order by 3pm today for collection tomorrow. If you order after 3pm today your order will be for collection the day after tomorrow.

2. Home delivery on Mon, Wed & Friday only:
We offer a home-delivery service on Mondays, Wednesdays & Fridays in the Enfield area (within a 5 mile radius of the bakery); order deadlines are as follows:

Order by 1pm Friday for delivery on Monday

Order by 1pm on Sunday for delivery on Wednesday

Order by 1pm on Tuesday for delivery on Friday

For the safety of our team and customers in the current COVID-19 situation, our delivery team cannot make face-to-face contact with customers so please specify clearly where we should leave your order (e.g. on your doorstep; behind a gate etc). We will call or message you when we deliver to confirm where we have left it.

Coronavirus Update

Dear customers,

🍞 Please rest assured Holtwhites Bakery will stay open as long as we have a healthy team, and we will continue to bake as fast as we can (which isn’t very fast, actually) 7 days a week. Please do not panic buy. You can pre-order by calling the shop on 020 8363 6503.

🚲 We will be implementing a home delivery service as soon as possible, giving priority to those who are self-isolating and in high risk groups. More information will follow about this soon.

🕗 We are now open 8am-4pm Monday to Saturday  and 8am-1pm on Sunday. Monday to Saturday we will have a half-hour closure between 12.30pm and 1pm to allow each shift to clean down and leave the building before the next shift arrives. By minimising contact between shifts and teams we hope to give everyone the best chance of staying healthy at work.

Please keep at least a 1 metre distance between yourself and other customers and staff when you are queuing and being served. We need to limit the number of customers in the shop at once, so if you are in group please only send one person into the shop.

🍕 Sadly we need to cancel Thursday Pizza Night for now as it clashes with our new shift patterns. We will postpone all evening events until healthier times; a full refund will be given for any tickets already purchased for our Italian evenings in April.

💳 We are taking extra precautions including extra hand-washing and sanitising high contact areas every hour. Please pay by contactless; if you really have to pay by cash we will wash our hands before we serve the next customer.

❤️ Thank you to all of our customers and to our brilliant team for your ongoing support, cooperation and good spirit. Let’s look after ourselves and each other, stay safe and be kind.

We hope to see you in the shop soon!

Kate & Richard

Evening Events in 2020

We host food & wine evenings in the shop on the first (and sometimes the second) Wednesday of each month. These give us the chance to show-case some of the wonderful products on our deli counter along side our baked goods, home-made dishes and great wines and beers.

Sadly, our evening events are on hold until further notice due to the current Covid-19 situation. However we will be back as soon as possible with more events. If you have booked tickets for one of our Italian events in April we will be in touch soon to make arrangements for a refund.

Watch this space!
