Vintage Birdcage Cakery

A NEW café has opened in a renovated groom’s house near Kingsgate Park in Yate.
Some 200 people turned up for the official opening of the Vintage Birdcage Cakery, with Thornbury and Yate MP Luke Hall cutting a ribbon to mark the occasion.
The café is run by Nicole Jones and Suzanne Jenkinson and as well as customers enjoying coffee and a range of cakes, they can also tuck into soup and sandwiches.
The enterprise began five years ago when Nicole used her baking skills in her family kitchen to help raise money for her daughter’s school.
She went on to bake commercially from home and as demand increased, recruited Suzanne as her business partner. They moved into a bigger kitchen in Frampton Cotterell but soon that was too small, resulting in restoration of the new premises behind Stanshawes Court.
The women, who hope to introduce a cookery school to the business, said they were delighted with the response to the opening.
Mr Hall said: “This will be a wonderful addition to the local area. Small businesses are the centre of our local economy.”
