ABOUT US 2018-05-24T17:15:33+00:00

Welcome to our world

We are a multi award winning bakery nestled in the heart of Rickmansworth. We believe in community, creativity and real honest baking made with love.

Our Story

We are an independently owned family business with a passion to share our knowledge, skills and for you to enjoy great tasting bakes, food and beverages.  The knowledge and expertise that we have has been attained over a 35 year period through experience, training and definite lots of experimenting!

After two years of planning, Cinnamon Square first opened its doors in November 2005 and expanded in December 2010 into the adjoining shop.  Over the years we have won several prestigious awards from the Baking Industry, Guild of Fine Foods and the World Bread Awards to name a few.

The ethos of Cinnamon Square is based on the use of the five senses, where customers can see, listen, touch, smell and taste the whole experience.

We love baking and want to share our passion, knowledge and information with our customers. Whether that’s through our hands-on baking courses or children’s parties, the in-store information boards or if you just want to come in and enjoy some of our fabulous foods or order your next celebration cake.

We aim to offer something for the whole family and to make the Cinnamon Square experience enjoyable for both adults and children.

We look forward to welcoming you to Cinnamon Square for a ‘Cin’sational experience!
