Proudfoot & Co – British Drinks Innovators in Winchester

Proudfoot & Co – British Drinks Innovators in Winchester

The Street Bakeshop, Old Basing

The Street Bakeshop, Old Basing

The Street Bakeshop in Old Basing is a hybrid, half cafe, half bakery and it combines the two elements perfectly.

This is the place to go in Basingstoke for breakfast and to pick up a loaf. Top quality food, baked goods and coffee. Oh, and some rather magnificent cake.
