Gails in Wanstead is part of the premium bakery chain but – being in the old Barclay’s bank building, has far more space for those dining in than many of the stores. And what a space it is! High ceilings, roomy tables, minimalist chic design, Gails offers a nice spot for brunch (served till mid afternoon) or cakes and beverages. Like the other Gails stores they offer high quality baked goods – cakes, breads, and pastries – with variety of flours and baking methods an important factor in their success. Their rye breads with seeds, their walnut loves, their sourdoughs, are all the stuff of sandwhich or tea-time legend and deservedly so.
