I finally paid a visit to the Glenwood Bakery that opened recently at 398 Esther Roberts (Frere) Road in Glenwood. (Actually, I did visit a while ago, but they were closed :/, so second time lucky.)
It's a really comfortable little space, and the word that comes to mind to describe it is "honest". The decor is simple and practical and the subtle colour scheme of white, dark wood and green is my favourite. The numerous little plants also really add to the atmosphere. Another bonus is that they have free wifi, or as their site states (which I love) "There is free WiFi so that our customers don’t have to talk to each other or to me."
The staff are friendly, and so are the patrons which was quite a varied mix of lovely people.
