“Absolutely delicious breads”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

Yes, this bakery is the real deal. Their ciabatta makes absolutely wonderful paninis. The epi baguettes have a perfectly baked crust and a yeasty, slightly chewy texture. The kalamata olive bread is an open crumb style artisan bread with a yeasty taste and large holes inside. The bread at Knead Bakery is phenomenal! We had a sticky bun and a savory scone for breakfast--needless to say they were also fantastic. Our only regret is that we live over 2 hours away so when we pass through Hood River we have to take home loaves of their bread and freeze it (which is still very good by the way). And last but not least, you will be hard pressed to find nicer people working at any food establishment.

“Need to Knead”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

The crew down at Knead bakes Super yummy bread and they offer many varieties. My favorites are the whole wheat walnut and the olive loaves. Great downtown stop for a coffee and a treat.

“What a great little bakery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

As far as I was concerned, not enough good things to say about this tasty find. I enjoyed fresh bread one day and wonderfully tasty treats the next.
The staff is second to none. The were friendly and offered their thoughts even though they were busy baking. I had a chance to speak to the owner as well.
The only thing keeping it from 5 stars was lack of seating inside, although honestly the outside tables were great for people watching. Not sure how it would be in the winter though.

Thank you for visiting us in our little downtown bakery. It is nice to sit outside weather permitting however the awning does help in keeping one dry while you enjoy your hot espresso, or cocoa!

“Try the fougasse”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Knead is a nice place to grab some fresh bread if you find yourself in Hood River. Our personal favorite is the fougasse, or "pretzel" bread," which is seasoned with olive oil, salt and herbs. (It freezes well, too.) The caprese sandwich is the best of all the sandwiches I've tried so far (egg salad, tuna, turkey).

“Next to Nora's Table, the tantelizing aroma draws you in.....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

The pecan sticky buns keep you there. Sit down with a paper and people watch while you enjoy the morning.

Enjoy a cuppa and a sticky bun then take a big loaf of " pretzel bread to tear apart while you drive the Fruit Loop. Wonderful bread and pasteries and breads` great service` freshly baked. What more could you ask?They also have soups and salads and of course sandwiches listed in their menu among other offerings.

This is a great bakery, restaurant and take out all rolled into one.
