“The best place to spend a weekend brunch”

Holey Artisan Bakery
Ranked #2 of 11 Bakeries in Dhaka City

Restaurant details
Dining options: Lunch, Breakfast
Description: Holey Artisan Bakery was born from passion. It all began with Lillian's longing for real bread and so her husband Porag took action. He joined forces with Sadat, a close friend and the owner of the best restaurant in Dhaka, Izumi and they brought Mr. Maurice, Baker Maestro, the magician behind all creations at Holey, to train us. It is hard to articulate how thankful we are to him and how immeasurable has been his contribution.

The atmosphere is quite unique and the waitstaff is excellent. Their homemade breads are just incredible. Although a bit expensive, you get quality ingredients that are to die for! I would love it if they offered large servings of coffee. The European size coffee portions are a bit of disappointment. They are planning to have pizza once their wood fired iron is up and running.

My friends were telling about this new venture so one fine holiday morning me and my wife planed to try Holey for breakfast.
In a first look the ambience is nice. A beautiful green lawn overview the lake where you can spend your time with sanity. There are enough parking space in front of the gate for self drivers.
I thought the choice of bread will be more but may be web were too early. Surprisingly they start serving breakfast at 9.00 AM ( which actually branch time, isn't it?)and I has to wait a while.
I think a Bakery of this type should start serving their fresh backed breads at early in the morning to catch the school and office segment. in such case I might will arrange some breakfast party for my friends here.
A good initiative in Dhaka, worth trying.

Walking into the Holey Shop, first thoughts are there are way too many choices and that I should buy what I need not what I want. Admittedly, I have frequently buckled on the latter, with no regrets, other than around the waistline. There are always a wonderful selection of breads (multigrain is my old standby) and interesting desserts (check to see if there are any key lime muffins left). Prices are on the high-end, but first time customers usually turn into regulars.

Hands down the best breakfast, lunch option for hot meal, sandwich or salad. Authentic french breads and pastries. Best french baguettes, real sourdough bread, meat pies, desserts, cakes, pies, breads like multi-grain, brioche, scotch kiss, white, wheat. The best place for bread by far in Dhaka. Gorgeous location along the lake walking path, nice grassy open areas or air conditioned glass lined dinning room. Close to everything, same parking lot as the Lakeside Medical clinic. They also offer catering for parties big and small, delivery available. Very family friendly with room to picnic and play a bit.

After a month in the US recently, I looked forward to the sourdough at Holey - that's how good it is. What makes this place truly unique though is the chill and welcoming ambiance. We love taking our son, lazing about in the garden, and spending the afternoon eating some good food among great company. The Spanish chefs are continuously expanding the menu and bringing fresh flavors to Dhaka. The seafood paella is as authentic as you're going to get in this part of the world, and not to be missed. Looking forward to evening dinner service coming soon! Highly recommended. Sasha.
