A PASTRY SHOP ON A FARM
PINCH IS A PASTRY SHOP SPECIALISING IN CRULLERS AND GELATO. A CRULLER IS A CLOUD-LIKE DOUGHNUT MADE OF DEEP-FRIED CHOUX PASTRY. OUR PASTRIES ARE MADE USING THE ORGANIC FLOUR, EGGS AND FRUIT FROM MAPLE FARM, WHERE OUR CAFE IS BASED.
IN THE WARMER MONTHS, WE SERVE SEVERAL FLAVOURS OF GELATO IN HOMEMADE SPELT CONES. ALL OF OUR GELATO IS MADE USING THE MILK AND CREAM FROM E.S.BURROUGHS, A DAIRY FARM ON THE SUFFOLK/NORFOLK BOARDER.
WE BELIEVE IN QUALITY OVER QUANTITY, WHICH IS WHY WE HAVE A LIMITED SELECTION OF PRODUCTS TO CHOOSE FROM. PLEASE SEE OUR MENU BELOW.
ALTHOUGH WE DO NOT SERVE ANY SAVOURY FOOD IN OUR CAFE, WE HAVE PLANS TO CHANGE THIS IN 2024.

Maple Farm is a regenerative organic family run farm close to Aldeburgh. The farm produces an array of fruits and vegetables as well as old varieties of grains that are stone-milled on site, all of which are used for our cafe.
Alice, born and raised in Suffolk, has worked in some of London's most exciting restaurants such as Kricket, Clipstone, Levan and Emilia, the latter as Head Chef. She has also spent time cooking in Amsterdam, Bangkok and India. The pandemic led her to take a step back from the London restaurant scene, move home to Suffolk and study Food Anthropology at SOAS. During this time, the idea for Pinch was born to showcase and celebrate the incredible local produce she was surrounded by.
