The Hubbery Cafe and Bakery

The Hubbery is a prominent part of Spithurst Hub. It has changed and developed over the years and at present it is a weekly micro bakery and a seasonal pop up cafe as well as the constantly beating heart of our co-working space and meeting venue. 

We love the Swedish concept of fika and drawing from The Hubbery founder’s heritage we offer Swedish themed home cooked food, home made bread and home baked buns and cakes to our local community, to our cafe guests, to our co-workers and to our meeting room users.

The Hubbery Bakery – We bake to order here most Fridays in small batches and with much love, care and attention to detail. Our authentic Swedish cinnamon, cardamom and vanilla buns are popular treats and our slow proved triangular bread is flavoured with caraway seeds and fennel and without any additives of course. You can also order our chocolate cake well known from the So Sussex Picnic at Elderflower Fields Festival. Everything we bake is suitable for home freezing on the day of purchase … if you can make it last that long!

Simply place your order at THE HUBBERY BAKERY ONLINE SHOP  by midday on Thursdays and pick up your freshly baked produce on Friday afternoons between 13.00 and 17.30. Our upcoming Hubbery Bakery Fridays are; 7th June, 14th June, 28th June, 5th July and 12th July. We also accept big orders at other times, just email us [email protected] with your request and you can purchase our frozen buns at Barcombe Village Shop 🙂

Fika is the Swedish word for stopping what you’re doing, having a break and enjoying a drink and a homemade treat together with your family, your friends or your colleagues. It’s a hugely important part of Swedish culture and it is a concept that is difficult to fully explain or translate properly … you just have to visit us to experience it!

The Hubbery has been running for Spithurst Hub members and local businesses since we opened Spithurst Hub in 2017. In the middle of the pandemic, after the first lockdown, we decided to also open The Hubbery Cafe to the public during weekends and this venture flourished for two and half years. It became an enjoyable outdoor meeting place for lots of people having Swedish fika together during a difficult time.

Many thanks to all the lovely guests who supported our initial Hubbery Cafe venture and huge thanks to all the amazing young people who worked with us and who helped us create The Hubbery Cafe in the first place! It was a pleasure to share so many lovely fika moments with you all in the middle of the pandemic!
