The German Bakery.

The Bread Company in Thimbirigasyaya also known as the German Artisanal Bakery is the newly opened bakery by the Good Market favourites. They’ve still got all the different breads they offered at the good market, but now they also offer a whole range of other baked goods, homemade jams and pickles.


To those who haven’t been to their stall at the Good Market, the Bread Company makes some pretty great sourdough, rye and nutty breads which they bake throughout the day. Now they also offer a range of sandwiches, jams, pickles and ice teas. All of which are homemade.

We tried the chicken sandwich (Rs. 350), which was one of four sandwiches they had on offer. The sandwich itself is pretty simple with a rye bun, crumb fried chicken breast, some lettuce and a light yoghurt dressing. The beauty of it is that each component was of  very high quality. The chicken was crispy, flavoursome and worked well with the yoghurt dressing. However, as with the other sandwich we tried, the real hero was the bun which was freshly baked and lightly grilled. It wasn’t very dense either so it absorbed some of the dressing, which added to the flavour while not making the sandwich soggy.

The other one that we ordered was their cold cut pork sandwich (Rs. 350). Again the part about the bun being great remains true, and it’s also nice to have at least a few places with pork based options. While the sandwiches weren’t massive, we found the size to be fine, so unless you’re like really starving, one should suffice more often than not. Besides the two we tried, they also have a cheese sandwich and a prawn omelette sandwich.

We also tried out their mixed berry jam (Rs. 650) which had blueberry and red current in it. This isn’t the kind of super sugary jam you come across at super markets. It isn’t very sweet because they use a minimal amount of sugar in it, but the flavour of the berries really come through beautifully. While Rs. 650 is a bit pricey, we felt it was fair considering the ingredients.

Ambience and Service

It’s only been roughly a month since they’ve opened their doors, so things are still just falling into place. The place is quite small with seating for around 10 people but it’s still quite cozy. It’s more a place where you grab a bite to eat and then bounce. The location is pretty good so it’s great for the office crowd looking for a quick lunch.

You generally don’t expect much service-wise when it comes to bakeries, but these guys are definitely an exception. Everyone is very polite and more often than not you’ll find the owner at the counter, and he seemed more than happy to describe their products in detail. If they can keep up their current level of service, they’ll have a loyal customer base in no time at all.


As far as first impressions go this is as good as it gets. The food tastes great and the bread is still as good as it was when they started out at the good market. If they  keep this up we’ll definitely be visiting more often.
