Smeatons Bakery Sign

“SOMEWHAT BITTER, somewhat sweet, Meant to keep me on my feet. With a scent to wake me up, When its poured there in my cup. Dark and rich this brew of mine, Always tasting mighty fine. This cup of Jo is truly good Tasting always like it should. T'is very nice here in the morn. When the day is newly born. When there's just a hint of chill Then I sit and drink my fill. Peace and quiet time for me, All alone in harmony. With my cup for me to sip, This coffee on my tongue and lip.’ Dwayne Leon Rankin. That Morning Cup of Coffee

Smeatons Bakery and Café in Glen Innes is famous for its great pies and friendly service. Not only pies, but cakes, breads, pastries, sandwiches, sausage rolls, totes, salad bar and catering for special occasions are all on offer here, as well as freshly ground coffee, of course. Everything is baked on site, so it’s as fresh as it gets. As one happy customer reported, “Had lunch here. Could not fault very tasty pies (my husband had), great quiche , kids all had pies and sausage rolls, followed by cakes and home-made wagon wheels. Friendly service, great coffee. Just don't sit there too long or that diet will go out the window! You know a place is good when you see the line of locals using it. All in all a good place for salad rolls, sweets,,bread and hot pies etc. Wish we had one closer to us.”

We had fun making this sign for Smeatons, knowing it is a landmark place that needs a landmark sign. The artwork was all hand sculpted and painted, while the text was hand carved and gilded with 23kt gold.
