Indulge your taste buds in a scrumptious surprise nestled in a lush valley of Liberta. VJ’s-Bakery, established in1989, offers a wide array of breads,pastries, cakes, cheesecakes and other delectable treats.Born out of the backyard of Vantella and Jean Jackson, the original backyard bakery was an oven shell placed over a coal pot, where they produced mainly buns and rocks. The bakery has continued to grow and now boasts 3,500sq. ft. of the most modern,ultra clean bakery premises on island. VJ’s is now operated by the new generation of siblings, Vilya, Vancia and Javan. Their roles are often shared and range between quality management,marketing, R&D, accounting and of course bread, cake and pastry making,the fun stuff.
There are 15 persons in the operation and Mom & Dad are still active. Dad delivers goods and acts as chief consultant, and Mom does ‘everything’. Interestingly, VJ’s is one of he few bakeries that produce 12multi-grain bread and their daily breads all come in both wheat and white varieties. Their extensive sweet treat menu includes traditional local pastries; rocks, coconut tarts, current rolls, bun tarts and arguably one of the best bun and cheese on island.Specialty items include chocolate cake (not too bitter, not too sweet, with hints of cinnamon), red velvet, butterrum cake, (flavoured with coffee liquor, cinnamon and vanilla notes,and finished with a light and airy icing)and carrot cake (taste moist, nutty and fruity all at the same time!).
VJ’s massive assortment of cheesecakes are to die for! They have imaginative flavours which include white chocolate-raspberry, rum & raisin,snickers, nuttella, coconut almond,strawberry-lemonade, lemonade and the ever popular classic cheesecake.You must also try their irresistible,made-from-scratch, freshly baked chocolate chip cookies!Every day is a blessed day at VJ’s,but the most fun times are arguably Sunday Mornings when traditional hot and buttery “Sunday” bread is sold. It’s a treat for those looking forward to fresh baked bread with their Sunday breakfast or those in need of a hearty sandwich after a night out!
