Our Story

Hume's Bakery has sat at the heart of Halstead high street for over sixty years since our opening day on 1st April 1960.  When customers walk into our bakery, they’re immediately greeted by a delicious smell of freshly baked bread and cakes that has graced over four generations


We've been baking in Halstead for sixty years and have been serving our iconic sasuage rolls to nearly four generations.  Almost all of our goods are handcrafted, baked and served with a side of love, all on site. 



In our bakery, we are continuing protocols for the safety of our team members and our customers, including:

  • Increasing the frequency of routine disinfecting throughout the shop

  • Limiting the number of customers inside our bakery and have signage for guests to social distance appropriately

  • Providing our team members with facial shields and gloves to wear.

  • Asking customers and staff to sanitise their hands using the hand gel provided 

Thank you to the BEST customers around for your patience and support during these times!
