bake. is a social enterprise café and bakery set up to help and train unemployed people in our community. 
We train in barista skills, baking and customer service to help people gain the skills they need to start working again.

First opening our doors in June 2019 we have grown to be a favourite in the community, especially with all of the brownies the people of Kempston enjoyed during 2020 lockdowns!

Beth, our director, set up the café to combine her love of baking & running a local café with her want to help local people grow and achieve their dreams, just as she is living hers.

We at bake. aim to be different to your usual food outlet by being a place to take a break, to enjoy good quality food & drink and a place you can feel at home.
