“Wonderful bread”

Pleasanton Brick Oven Bakery

Certificate of Excellence

Restaurant details
Reviewed August 5, 2012

This bakery is located on the grounds of an old sanitarium. They have converted it to a nice place to stop and enjoy a pastry or some of their home-made bread made with natural leavening and then fired in a brick oven. Quite tasty.

This is the most wonderful, delicious bakery bread in the World. Their starter has no yeast. I normally can not eat wheat, but through their process, the wheat is broken down before it is baked. I love the olive loaf and cherry pecan, but just the plain wheat is Wonderful. Gerard and Jan will take the time to tell you about their bread, where the wheat comes from etc. They are located over in the Commons area, behind Building 50. Take the time to seek them out. Or you can purchase their delicious bread at Oryana Food Co-op. Priced just right.

This place is so cool. You can see the brick oven the minute you walk in, and the staff have some great stories on the place's history. And the bread? PHENOMENAL! Easy to find, on the Traverse City Commons campus.

We tried both the rye and the manna -- very good! We had been served some of their bread at local restaurants and wanted some to take home. Definitely check out this freestanding bread bakery at "The Village".
