A bakery and bistro in Oldham has opened a drive-thru cakery service and we are absolutely desperate to go.

Wonderlust Bistro and Bakery on Library Lane first opened in February this year, leaving locals clamouring about its excellent bakes as the Oldham Times reported it could ‘rival any Manchester bistro’.

The family-run eatery is headed up by baker Saarah Chowdhury, who runs the bakery and bistro alongside brother Mohammed and mum Shelley Rahman.

With an unmissable bright pink and purple exterior and a mouthwatering menu of cakes and other bakes, plus bistro dishes ranging from Korean corndogs to pancakes, roasts and loaded fries, it’s already become a huge hit – drawing in locals and foodie tourists alike.

The demand for their treats has become so high, in fact, that the team has recently launched its own car service so that visitors can easily pull up, place an order and have their goodies brought directly to them.


Open from 5pm until midnight, this is definitely the place to go for a late-night treat with everything from. Jammy Dodger and Kinder Hippo cupcakes to Biscoff-stuffed cheesecake, milk cake, Snickers brownies and gooey Nutella-filled cookies on offer from the bakery.

Food from the bistro is also available to order as part of the evening car service, although it is worth noting that the team is currently running a temporarily limited menu and different opening times for Ramadan.

During this period the bakery will open from 6pm-1am Wednesday to Sunday, before returning to their normal opening times from Friday 21 April.

The bistro, meanwhile, will open from 5pm – 12am Wednesday to Saturday during Ramadan serving a dinner menu of corndogs, pancakes and French toast, and from 12-9pm on Sundays serving brunch, roast and corndogs.
