“Don't Oversleep ... Best Bites Go Fast”
Review of Chez Lezan Bakery

Chez Lezan Bakery
Restaurant details
Reviewed March 3, 2013

Pure indulgence with powdered sugar on top - these are the best muffins on the island. The key: go early (before 900am) for best selection. What makes this better than the other downtown bakery is the water filter they use for Fernandina's tap, which can affect the outcome of some baked goods. It's a must-visit every time we go, even if it's on the way out of town departure morning.

Having just had one of Dottie's inspired bagels, I am continually reminded that every item produced by this genius baker is the best anywhere. Her pecan rolls, offered on Wednesday and Sunday, are to die for, and pastries and bread, muffins, etc., are all wonderful. Highly worth a detour and splurge.

My husband and I discovered Chez Lezan when we moved to Fernandina about two years ago. Since then it has become a twice a week breakfast stop. In addition to her amazingly delicious muffins, croissants, and puff pastries, Chez also has consistently perfect brewed coffee and artisan breads. My personal favorite being the kalamata olive loaf. Pour some fresh olive oil over Italian spices and dip bread-who needs dinner?
Chez is located on the corner of Atlantic and11th in a small shopping plaza on the corner. It is a small bakery with only one cafe table inside and out but a true bread conasaurs will instantly know what a master baker Dottie is when they eat anything from Chez. Enjoy!

Our family has been using Chez Lezan for over a year; both as a place to order delicious pastries and to order specialty cakes for family birthdays. Each cake is truly a work of art and better than any cake we have gotten from big city bakeries. This Christmas was decided to order an Yule Log. We were amazed by the level of artistry that went into the design. Needless to say it also tasted wonderful!

We are traveling by sailboat on the ICW and when we arrive in a town, we always search for the best bakery. When we discovered Chez Lezan and we met Dottie the baker,we knew we were right on. Fresh baked bread made with love such as maple molasses, sundried tomato and asiago, rosemary Parmesan ....and many more delicious pastries.This past visit was our third trip to Fernadina and Chez Lezan is always top on our list not only for great bread but a big hug from Dottie!
