Though I believe it is a patisserie.... anyone tried the new [whatever it is] on Statiopn Road? Pish buns and bread shop. Keep meaning to go in, but the window is always bare, and I am always having to run for my Brighton train

all their stuff seems to come from a posh london bakery maison blanc, so an almond croissant costs 1.80!!! Yes i foolishly bought one and regretted that it did not have enough almond paste in it.
Its happening all over lewes, posh bread is in, 3 for a round white loaf with olives on it. I love the middle classes, they will talk down white sliced but put its price up and stick some rosemary and salt on it and then its all ok.

I suspect it won't last. I have popped in a couple of times. I admire someone for starting such a business, but I don't really think they have much of a clue. The woman who runs it is very nice, but it looks like one of those businesses that is run more like a hobby no proper till, an expensive coffee machine that's probably not paying for itself and as you say their window display is a bit pathetic and not very inviting.
Actually I've been thinking thi for a while now.. One thing (of many) that Lewes REALLY DESPERATELY does need is a DECENT bakery. The smell of Cheese Straws and Dried out Bacon slices in Forfars makes me sick, and their pathetic bread display during the week (all of about half a dozen loaves) is er.. pathetic. The Saturday outdoor rain or shine bread thing is a joke and once a month is knocked into a cocked hat by the Farmer's market Bread van.
Ohh if only something like the Ovens still existed they used to do fantastic meat pies.

I remember that patisserie/bakery that was where the Dilraj is now, at the time Lewes couldn't support it
