Crosstown Bakery

About Crosstown

Crosstown is a scratch bakery in London specialising in sourdough doughnuts, small batch ice cream, homemade cookies, extraordinary chocolate, and specialty coffee. The company was founded in 2014 by JP Then and Adam Wills, starting as a street food stall. Crosstown has since grown into an omni-channel retailer and currently has 26 sites across, a store in Cambridge, Oxford, Brighton, Bath, and Bristol, as well as online nationwide ordering, events, catering, and wholesale segments.  

In 2017 the brand launched a range of vegan sourdough doughnuts, made with alternative ingredients such as chia seeds, coconut butter and silken tofu, and were awarded Best Vegan Doughnuts by PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) in 2018 and ‘The Best Doughnuts’ by Vegans of London in 2019. A selection of vegan flavours is available at all Crosstown locations and online.  

In 2020, the brand extended their offering to include homemade cookies and ice cream. Crosstown Ice Cream is made in small batches, using traditional methods and the finest seasonal ingredients to develop real flavour and a smooth, silky finish. Each flavour can be paired with homemade toppings inspired by the brand’s award-winning doughnuts or served with dairy or oat milk for a refreshing shake.  

Since Crosstown’s inception, they’ve been conscious of their environmental impact, striving to find solutions to better their practices as the brand grows. They’re looking to make lasting positive contributions to the community and the environment, from sourcing sustainably sourced packaging, using seasonal ingredients, offering compostable recycling solutions in-store, developing vegan flavours, to introducing electric fleet of vans to fulfil their deliveries across Greater London.
