Prince of Wales bakery was established in Dhaka circa 1850 by a man from Wales, Great Britain. The original owner left shortly before the Partition of India. The bakery is located in Lakshmi Bazaar, Old Dhaka. After the original owner left, the bakery and premises was bought by a former employee, Sheikh Buddhu Mia, who continued the baker. The Bakery has been owned by three generations of Sheikh Buddhu Mia’s family. The bakery was the first in Dhaka to offer wedding cakes and Christmas cakes. The bakery bakes in a traditional method with equipments that are a hundred years old. It’s Christmas cakes are a traditional Christmas item of Old Dhaka. The bakery used to have portraits of the English monarchy. The bakery has declined in recent years and is now a confectionary store.
Ever since Buddhu Mia’s family is running the bakery in Laxmibazar, near the famous St. Gregory church and selling mouth-watering pastries, cakes, butter buns, cream rolls and different types of biscuits to thousands of customers. Some of its items look distinctly different from that of the modern bakeries of the city. The bakery is also one of the first to have baked wedding and Christmas
cakes in Dhaka. Source: Wikipedia
