Customers were seen queuing out the door to get a taste of the newest bakery in Bournemouth.

The family-run business Bigwigs already owns three sites in Tuckton, Highcliffe and Westbourne and has now opened a fourth venue in the town centre.

The bakery is owned by brother and sister pair Dom and Dove Brown and their long-time friend Tom Bew.

Dove said: “We are really excited to be open, and a huge thank you to all our customers for all their support - they make work a dream.”

She added: “We want to continue serving delicious products in a fun environment.”

The owners said they were inspired to create a customer space where people can chat and relax with friends and family.

BigWigs offers a large variety of bakery-style goods, including homemade bread, doughnuts, cakes and pastries, all made fresh at the Tuckton Site.

It also offers locally sourced hot food, which can be eaten in or taken away, including a vast gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan range.

Tom Bew added: “We want to be a bakery for the people and see people leave with a smile on their face.”

Customers flooded through the doors and one told the Bournemouth Echo: “It’s great to see an independently owned coffee shop that is family-friendly.”

He added: "They do amazing doughnuts."

BigWigs has released its doughnut specials: white chocolate and pistachio, chocolate and blueberry-filled doughnuts, and raspberry and coconut-filled doughnuts. 

Dawn Brown, the original pastry chef for BigWigs, said: “All the food is made from scratch, and it is such a beautiful place to work; the quality of the food is unheard of.”

The owners plan to open the venue on Friday and Saturday evenings as a restaurant in the new year, serving what they claim will be “The best burger in Bournemouth.”

The newest BigWigs Bakery is open from 8.30am to 4pm Monday- Saturday until 3 pm on Sundays and is based at 10 Exeter Road, Bournemouth, BH25AQ.
