The much loved café bar and bakery closed its doors for the final time on Sunday October 6


A popular café bar and bakery in the heart of Coventry's creative quarter has announced its shock closure.

Backhaus & Co was situated in a unit in FarGo Village, a creative space in Coventry city centre which is designed specifically for independent businesses and traders.

The open industrial style cafe, known for its towering homemade cakes and freshly baked bread closed its doors for good on Sunday October 6 after announcing its closure three days before.

Set in the heart of FarGo Village, the independent café bar, bakery and cookery school opened two years ago .

At the time, owners Jessica Edwards and Dan Smith told CoventryLive: "It is such a lovely community at FarGo and it is great to have been welcomed so warmly by the other businesses.

"It is like coming home every time we come in and we have been really lucky with the staff we have hired as well."

So there was collective shock when the popular food spot announced on Thursday October 3 that it would be closing their doors that weekend.
