A-Z of Secret Dundee: Clark’s 24 Hour Bakery

Dundee’s famous pie shops are all but gone, but one local bakery keeps the full-fat flag flying and that’s Clark’s.

The place is legendary to students, construction and office workers and all-night party people alike. As well as a fine line in pies (pehs as they say in Dundee!) it also serves paninis, baguettes, homemade soup, chips, cakes and even ice cream.

It is unlike any bakery you’ve ever visited before

It is unlike any bakery you’ve ever visited before. The Clark Classic dishes could probably be included on Man Versus Food and include the popular Helicopter, which is a heady mix of burger, square sausage, bacon, fried egg and chips on a bun. Stand up comedian, Kevin Bridges is a major fan. He probably gets some of his material from the banter in the pub closing times queues.
