Idle Hands is a shop and bakery in Dunlop, East Ayrshire. 

Open Friday - Sunday, starting each day with freshly baked real bread, patisserie, cakes and savouries to take away.

We also have an interesting selection of local and international provisions and groceries.


Who wouldn't want a European style hangout on their doorstep? A place to pick up some gorgonzola, a sourdough or mortadella while grabbing an espresso and meeting up with friends.
We are a shop and bakery only, with no space to sit-in.

Only two of us run the show.
Piero is in charge of the coffee and Morven the cakes.

We also work with other artisan makers which allows us to mix our own talents with other like-minded producers.  It means we can offer the very best of what's available to our customers.

*Covid-19 measures:
Only one person or family group in at a time.
Please wear mask correctly (covering mouth and nose)
Please leave 2m distance in the queue.
Use contactless hand sanitiser before entering.
Stay behind perspex screen at counter.
Please leave the doorway clear to allow customers to exit.



We are a weekend shop and bakery, usually open Friday, Saturday and Sunday each week, but we're taking a short break this January and will be back at the end of the month.
