“Very Good Bread and Pastries”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

Bantam Bread started out MANY years ago making wonderful baked goods with a friendly and helpful staff. Alas, the years have passed and while the products are still very good, their prices have soared and their staff have chilled. A kalamata olive loaf, once $3+ is now $6.25 a loaf. Their scrumptious quiche, once $13 reached $30, and on it goes. Folks passing through or visiting for the weekend may find this acceptable and I guess that's what keeps the place going. Oh yes, and the fact that they sought to become a major commercial operation in Plainville CT kind of killed their "locavore" mystique.We long for the "old days."

“worth a trip to Bantam”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

best bread in the area; I am a regular customer and the bread is consistently wonderful. They also offer lots of other goodies - pies, tarts, cookies, muffins. This bakery makes good, honest comfort food. Do not miss it.

“Best bread tarts and cakes in the area”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

This great most reliable addition to the area invariably produces the best breads done on the premises on daily basis, using superb ingredients. They also produce the most delicious fruit pies and cakes. I particularly like their apple tarts and some of their cakes. Try it, you will go back again and again...

“Our Favorite Place to Buy Fresh Baked Goods”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

We feel lucky to live so close to Bantam Bread Company. Everything, from their breads to their granola are consistently unique and delicious. We love it so much that when friends are in town, we always take for a treat at Bantam Break Company.

“BEST BREAD!”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

bantam bread is incredible. every time you walk in you are greeted by attentive staff. the aroma is irresistible: freshly baked bread and pastries. they even have organic dog treats. I love the "dirty bombs": moist muffins covered in delectable cinnamon sugar. I have never been disappointed at bantam bread. They are truly artisans of bread! go there!
