The Early Bird Bakery has launched a temporary pizza pop up

Early Bird Bakery Pizza

The Early Bird Bakery in Roath is just a little bit special.

Not only do they hand roast all of their Coffee in house, make all of their fresh breads and cakes on the premises, and do a mean fried breakfast – they also nurture up-and-coming young talent via an apprenticeship scheme with ACT Training – one of Wales’ leading training providers.In a bid to give their young learners as many new skills as possible during their time, the Early Bird bakery team have launched a new series of events called the ‘Apprenticeship  Showcase’.

What is the Apprenticeship Showcase?

A month-long schedule of weekly events that will give the bakery’s latest young learners the opportunity to show off their creativity by cooking up something completely unique – something not normally found on the Early Bird menu.

Every Friday in November, this cute little cafe will transform into an intimate candle-lit restaurant, where members of the public will be invited to bring a bottle (BYOB) and help support the Bakery’s latest apprentice.

This month it’s the turn of their newest recruit Kaylem, and tonight I had a sneak preview of his chosen menu – crispy, chewy sourdough pizzas and toppings with a proper kick.

I love The Early Bird bakery. It’s a quirky place which looks great, it’s owned by young people who are really passionate about what they do, and with their Apprenticeship Showcase, it’s clear they want to do all they can to help their young learners to excel, too.

This sounds great – I’m in! Where can I book?

If this sounds right up your street; you can contact the Early Bird team on Facebook to book your spot at the Apprenticeship Showcase, or contact them on

You can enjoy Kaylem’s creations on any Friday evening this month – don’t forget to bring along a bottle of red!

I was invited to try out the Early Bird Apprenticeship Showcase, and as such all food was complimentary. I was not obliged to write a positive review.
