A HUSBAND and wife are set to bring “French chic” to Llandudno when they open a new artisan bakery in the town this week.

Benjamin Lee, along with wife Dominika, is behind the Benjamin Lee Artisan Bakery, which will be based at 21 Mostyn Avenue, LL30 1YS.

The shop will open for the first time at 10am tomorrow (April 12).

For their first day, the bakery will be open until 4pm, before closing for Easter, and then re-opening on a six-day-a-week basis, from Tuesday until Sunday, 8.30am – 4pm.

Benjamin will be assuming the roles of baker and chocolatier, while Dominika will be managing the shop and café.

All of the bakery’s products, including breads, cakes and patisseries, will be produced in-house by a team of professionals.

Dominika said: “It has been our dream to introduce a real artisan bakery.

“Everything about our bakery is unique, including a sophisticated interior.

“Our breads are sourdough-based, cold fermented over a few days, and have only three ingredients - salt, flour and water.

“Our fine patisserie is on the highest level. There’s nowhere quite like our high-end patisserie – everyone keeps saying it looks like a proper French patisserie.

“We have brought French chic to North Wales!”
