My mum used to take me to the upstairs cafe at the Davys in Haymarket, she had a toasted teacake and I had a glass of Pepsi and the glass came on a saucer! Also their tomato sausages were the absolute best......

does anyone remember Davy's Bakery and shops in sheffield

 

Dav's bakery , I think, used to be just off Patternoster Row.

I used to pass the place on my way to work earl in the morning .

Their main shop was at one time in Fargate .

The smell of bread being baked in a morning from the bakery and , the smell of coffee being roasted at the shop used to permeate the whole of the are .

The aroma alone was enough to put pounds on .

I worked in the offices on Paternoster Row. Lovely place to work, but the wages were low. I worked in the Punch Card room...really enjoyed my time there.

Has anyone still got the recipe for their tomato sausages, I believe they used tinned tomatoes. They have never been bettered!
