Located conveniently at Hendon Court (former Dream Park), it is owned by a Gambian businesswoman, Fatou Njie. With experience as Director of Revenue Management at Sheraton in Tajikistan, Fatou decided to continue her hospitality career by returning to her homeland and setting up her own business. She is also the owner of Phenomenal Women, the only wellness centre for women located at Bertil Harding Highway. The main focus of her businesses is health, nutrition, lifestyle and a balanced life.
When Fatou returned to The Gambia, she saw no bakery providing healthy options, so she decided to take Gambia's gastronomic scene up a notch by opening a much-needed bakery and cafe to cater to healthy people.
