What makes it a Rhody Gem?

Tea cakes, rock buns, sticky toffee pudding, and more are bakery staples across the UK, yet finding these treats in the states was difficult until now.
Enter mother and son June and Nishan Lawton, who founded their business on making British favorites using locally sourced ingredients. When asked if their surname is Love, Nishan chuckles and explains, “that’s what my mom calls everyone!” Inside the small bright space, patrons will find a variety of classic baked goods along with seasonal desserts in the case. The menu is updated as the duo discovers new recipes on trips back to their village of Harpham. June Love’s is also a regular at farmers markets this summer so be sure to visit their markets page online for updates.
