Taste Smokehouse Bar/Grill, formerly the York Café, has named its latest service The Wee Gingerbread Man.
The bakery will be open from 10am until 3pm five days a week from Tuesday to Saturday for walk-in takeaway orders. Taste has also set up an outdoor seating area for customers.
The eatery’s full evening menu is live on Deliveroo, while Just Eat users will be able to order their favourite dishes from the High Street restaurant as of this week.
With coronavirus lockdown restrictions set to ease further tomorrow, staff at Taste are planning to reopen their indoor seating area, albeit only partially.
Head chef Colin Reid, whose appearance and profession inspired the name, and owner Kyle Murray decided to add an in-house bakery as one way of adapting the business to the challenges presented by the Covid-19 pandemic
Julie Campbell, Taste admin assistant, said: “Colin had previously run a bakery in Edinburgh so his expertise in this field wasn’t being fully utilised.
“Our other chef, Stephen Johnstone, is a very experienced dessert chef so together they complement each other extremely well.
“This was also another way for us to bring quality, fresh, in-house produce to our customers by baking our own bread and rolls for our dishes alongside all the pastries, cakes and treats.”
