A popular Swindon bakery has announced what it has called 'our biggest news ever'. 

Pipp and Co has been delighting the people of Swindon with its artisan doughnuts and other goods for years.

But, after teasing the upcoming announcement on its social media page, encouraging people to keep an eye, the company has confirmed it will be opening a cafe in Bristol. 

In their announcement, owners Betina and Mario Evangelista said: "We are thrilled to announce that we’ll be opening the doors to our very first café in the beautiful city of Bristol next month!

"When we took over Pipp & Co in 2015, our dream was to one day open a café where you can enjoy our artisan doughnuts, pastries and organic coffee.

"While the journey has taken a bit longer than planned, we are beyond excited to finally see this dream become a reality!"

Each week, the Kembrey Business Park business bakes around 20,000 doughnuts which are all made from natural ingredients with no additives or preservatives.

The company can be regularly spotted selling its freshly-made doughnuts at selected markets, independent stores and restaurants across the south-west from its Swindon base, but it has not had a permanent cafe before. 

It is not yet known where the new cafe in Bristol will be opening, with the owner simply telling people in their Facebook post to 'watch this space'. 

"Thank you to our incredible community for your unwavering support over the years and for helping our family business to grow, one doughnut at a time

"Stay tuned for more updates as we count down to opening day and transform."

Products on offer on the Pipp and Co website at the moment include strawberry and balsamic, cinnamon and brown sugar, and peach and prosecco doughnuts as well as cruffins and cinnamon rolls. 

In May, they teamed up with Henny & Joe’s to make a limited edition chai-flavoured cinnamon-filled sweet treat, to commemorate national doughnut week. 

Reaction to the news has been overwhelmingly positive, although members of the public from Swindon had also had a tinge of jealousy. 

One person said: "Shamethat it's Bristol and not Swindon.. but happy days."

Another added: "I'm very jealous, these are the best doughnuts."

A third person said: "I’m somewhere between gutted this isn’t Swindon, and thankful that my waistline doesn’t have to panic. Either way, great news!"
