“Best fresh baked breads in Frederick”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

Several of the smaller coffee houses and restaurants get their baked goods from the Stone Hearth. I recognized their sweets being served (most satisfactory apple turnover) at a nearby, popular Shab Row eatery. Their head baker told me that they only use a sour dough starter. This surprised me because often sour dough starter can be too strong; but he keeps it subtle for the lighter, brighter dessert fare. For a quickie lunch try their made to order sandwiches - you can't get fresher than this. Parking is limited but ok. Baker, servers, sandwich makers are all smart and friendly. Take home pies and rolls remain fresh and keep well. A great experience all-round.

“Great Bread”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

I love theolive bread especially but they are all excellent. Also quality ingredients-no mixes or artificial stuff, delicious pastries, pies, and cakes. Everything looks good, too.

“European style breads and desserts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2012

This is my favorite bakery! Their sourdough bread is unbelievable and I always get rave reviews when I serve their rolls. Over the years I've tried at least 20 different desserts and have never been disappointed. Great value too.

“Wide selection of breads and pastries-get your stollen now!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2011

The rustic wheat bread was beautiful and delicious. Also got an almond pastry that was filled with some great marzipan. I never forget a good bakery. Shab Row is the pace to park if there is none on the street close.
