Miri Food Guide: Hot Cross Buns Bakery

DSCF2410

Hot Cross Buns Bakery has been opened in Miri since the early years of 1994 and has been one of the local brand names in Miri when it comes to ordering cakes for special occasions or buying freshly baked bread and buns.

Located at Pelita area, while I checked out this bakery – I noticed quite a crowd – people buying bread and buns, or some coming to collect their cakes. Despite being around for some time facing competition from new franchise bakeries, this local Miri bakery has managed to attract a loyal customer base

The Bakery has quite a big selection and design when it comes to cakes and you can definitely custom make some to match your special occasion!

Definitely keeping up with the times! They have Ipad for you to check out their available designs to help you make your choices ~~

Besides selling cakes – they also sell party accessories so you can grab everything under one roof! Useful if you want to make last minute surprises or plans!
