We popped in here for a coffee and cake whilst out for an early morning walk (staying at the Madonna Inn). What a find. We sat at a table in the bakery watching them creating their delicious goods whilst we sipped coffee and tried the cakes out. Not at all posh, but top class stuff. Excellent.

Great bread of many kinds baked here. You can sample the breads, with a bit of butter. Not inexpensive, but high quality. Alas, I'm back on my low carb diet.

Why the title? HOB is outside downtown SLO--no traffic and easy parking on site. Found this bakery by accident. Exited 101 North on Marsh; first business on the right. We stopped in for pastries and found a nice selection of Sandwiches...on freshly baked bread. The sandwiches are exceptional. The choice of breads is extensive. The samples offered are a full...

We packed a picnic lunch for Morrow Bay and needed a loaf of nice bread for our cheeses. I popped 'bread bakery' into my phone as we drove around the downtown area and was directed to House of Bread. Nice. Sourdough loaves were fresh out of the oven so we decided on that. While paying, we sampled their many offerings... More

House of Bread seriously knows how to bake! I never leave there empty handed. By that I mean, I can never resist treating myself to something either savory or sweet for immediate consumption. Yes, I stop for the bread, but there are so many temptations. Their chalIah is a weekly treat. House of Bread is our only bakery that bakes... More

Other reviews indicated to us that House of Bread was a restaurant but after carefully selecting it from Trip Advisor and going to some trouble to find it on a long trip from San Francisco to LA, we were surprised to find that it is a bakery with one small table for two. Great sandwich!

We scratch make everything on the premise from all natural ingredients. We specialize in unique bread varities from basil parmesan, wholesome 14-grain harvest to decadent chocolate zuchinni bread. For our lunch offerings, we use Boar's Head natural meats and local produce. We have a huge sample, so come on in and try a fresh slice of bread on the house.
