Bäxters: Say Hello to Egypt's First Scanadavian Bakery

Lucy, Fatma, and Nora Wafaay found themselves at different places in their lives, but what brought them together was their love for baked goods.

Mariam Nowar

In old English, a baxter was the male baker, and a baker was the female. To break the stereotype, three Finish-Egyptian ladies decided to launch a European-style bakery and called it Bäxters! Lucy, Fatma, and Nora Wafaay found themselves at different places in their lives, but what brought them together was being in the kitchen. That's when the lightbulb idea came to mind of launching a brand that unites them together. So, they did the brave move of quitting their jobs, and poured their heart and soul into Baxter.


The three sisters behind the brand


"We have desserts from all around Europe," Lucy told Scene Eats. "We make sandwiches, salads, and basically anything you can find at a  Scanadavian-inspired bakery. We have a rich chocolate cake called 'Kladdkaka' from Sweden, and 'Pulla', a Finnish cinnamon bun."


This is the first bakery of its kind in Egypt 


Lucy took us back in time and reminisced over her early years in Finland with her sisters, picking berries, which is why a lot of the inspiration is based on berries, an old memory she holds dear. So, when can you get a taste of the goodies? We thought you'd never ask!


The bakery will make its way to Cairo and Sahel very soon 


The bakery's soft opening is taking place in Sahel this summer, where Bäxters will be delivering and catering just to get a feel of the market. Afterwards, the bakery will be opening by the end of August/beginning of September at New Cairo's O1 Mall, and we simply can't wait! Oh, and if you can’t wait until all of that happens, you can simply slide into their DMs and get your nomtastic creations delivered to your doorstep.
