I had a job yesterday that saw me climbing out of my warm bed at 5.30am, but I have to say that if there was ever an excellent reason for getting up this early, it is to visit the amazing open bakery that is “Hart’s Bakery” in Bristol. ┬áThis doughy heaven is under the arches beside Temple Meads station, and as you sit with your morning coffee and pastry you can watch Laura Hart, the baker, taking the fresh bread out of the steaming ovens and preparing all the dough for the next day. ┬áThe smell alone is worth setting an alarm clock for.
