A classic‏ italian bread known for a great crust and a silky, soft crumb that is open and irregular

Just a little ciabatta, perfect for one. It makes a great sandwich roll or large dinner roll.

Traditional white‏ french dough with the subtle taste and aroma of dried rosemary leaves.
Roasted Garlic Boule
Whole garlic‏ cloves are roasted golden and sweet and added to a white french dough
Shaped into a round, it’s great for sandwiches and toast.
Country French
A blend of whole wheat, rye, and unbleached white flour creates a bread that is perfect for soups and sandwiches.
A light, open, irregular crumb and a great crust.
Keep it simple and make it great.
Rosemary adds a twist to this classic provençal flat bread. Irresistibly delicious, beautiful, and aromatic, it makes for a great bread to share with friends and family.
Durum flour gives this bread it’s unique sweet, nutty flavor and soft, irregular crumb with a golden crust of white and black sesame.
This soft and chewy flatbread is dressed with basil, oregano, parmesan, and sea salt.

Everything is incredible here, from the sandwiches to the pastries. Portions are big, prices are low, and quality is high. Service is also really nice. It's our must-stop lunch or breakfast place in the area.
