Robinsons are Manchester’s oldest family-run craft bakery and set up camp every Thursday, Friday and Saturday at Manchester Piccadilly’s Street Food Market, cramming every inch of their long checkered table with cakes, pastries, biscuits and breads that will leave you in a sugary daze. You won’t find a larger selection of flavours, techniques and designs from their cakes that span the continents, from French madeleines and Swiss tarts to British Bakewells and sticky toffee slice.
Their cakes change weekly, so their sweet, toffee laden ginger apple toffee slice, with soft and fruit chunks of apple and a mellow hum of spice may not be there when you take a visit. Perhaps you’ll find their rich and nutty almond and cherry slice in the line up. If not, I am sure whatever takes your fancy will not disappoint. If you make it down early, be sure to buy a loaf of bread for lunch (they say Saturdays have the biggest selection).
