About Us

Stones is a busy bakery and café in Falmouth where we produce all of our own breads, pastries and cakes. We are opening a new bakery in Penryn later this year. Good food is at the heart of what we do; making excellent baked goods that delight our customers is what drives us and we are looking for someone who cares as much as we do. We aim to create spaces that are a part of the community. Our customer service style is warm and inclusive; we’re a small business that knows our customers not a faceless corporation. We are a growing but close-knit team and the welfare and work/life balance of our staff is integral to the way we do things which is why our full time people work a four day week. We think that food, hospitality, people and place matter and we are striving to build a team that share that vision.
