Description: We are a Gluten-free bakery specializing in fresh breads, cookies, scones, and cakes. Many of our gluten-free products are available at farmers' markets throughout the area, but you have to come to the cafe for special treats like apple frangipane tarts; carrot cakes; salted caramel & chocolate tarts; flourless chocolate cakes; and fresh fruit, lemon curd tarts.Our cafe also serves breads & pastries from our traditional bakery (Our Daily Bread, 116 Hudson Ave), as well as soups, salads, quiches, and sandwiches on regular or gluten-free bread. History Established in 2012 For years, 54 Main St was the home of our artisanal bakery and cafe. In the fall of 2011, we moved the bakery to its new location, just down the street at 116 Hudson Ave, next to Destino. That left us with a lot of space in the old place, and a great deal of pent up customer demand for gluten-free products.The cafe continued as before, but big changes were underway in the bakery half of the building.We spent a few months cleaning up the residual gluten and developing gluten-free recipes, then debuted our new products for Valentine's Day of 2012. Now the cafe serves a mix of products from both bakeries. We have recently added fresh vegetable juices to our regular cafe menu.

“New place in the old home town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2012

Chatham is my family home-ground; but we've been gone for over 30 and many businesses have come and gone during that time. Though we're there frequently, some came and went so quickly that we never got to check them out. Our Daily Bread has been around for quite a while and recently moved to it's new expanded location on Church St. On a recent visit to my family, we took my parents out for lunch there.
The sandwiches were all on hearty breads, though my wife thought hers to be a bit dry; but all had great body and taste. All were composed of a sizable quantity of their respective meats and served with a side of a red cabbage slaw and a dill slice. We were seated in a rather private area which worked well for our party, and there are more open and other types of seating available.
Though they had a good selection of coffees and teas, the coffee drinkers in the family stuck with basic brewed coffee--the cups were kept fresh by attentive wait staff--and the teas went untasted. Other areas yet to sample were the nice selections of salads and desserts, all arrayed before us as we came in.
I'll honestly say that this review hardly does justice to the place. We'll have to go back when we have more time to enjoy and sample the variety of goods available there.

“Great Lunch in a charming small town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2012

Today I had a delicious and creative good sized plate of salad at Our Daily Bread at a reasonable price of $7. The Zeus Salad was great, with mesclun, stuffed grape leaves, wonderful, fresh cheese, black olives, tomatoes, and a slice of Our Daily Bread's fantastic multigrain bread (several other options were available). My friend enjoyed the Mediterranean Salad, a variation of the Zeus, with hummus and tapenade instead of cheese and ollves. I love to have lunch at Our Daily Bread whenever I'm in the area. They have a varied menu of excellent sandwiches, salads pancakes, quiche, and more. You can also stop in just for their fabulous baked goods and breads. It's a simple place with just a small town atmosphere and in the summer has a nice outside seating area.

“I won't go back.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2012 via mobile

When I ordered a pancake the girl used the palm of her hand (gloved) to press the pancake on the grill and returned to prepare other meals with the same gloved hand. Good luck if you order pancakes.

“Gluten Free...they do not know what they are doing”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2012

They sell and bake gluten free breads as well as regular ones. They also make gluten free sandwiches if you ask. The point of this terrible review is that they have no idea what the gluten free practice is all about. If you ask for something gluten free, most times it means you have a intolerance or you have celiac decease, which if cross contaminated can cause serious discomfort and illness. When asked to make sandwiches, the staff, apparently not educated in handling gluten free requests, proceeded to make the sandwiches on the same cutting board as the regular bread, did not change their gloves, used the same sandwich spreads for the regular meals and the same knives etc. When we told them that that was wrong practice, we were met by a very snotty attitude, a not can due. So how is their gluten free bakery handled?
How can they even sell the bread, when their practices are not correct and can cause some serious damages?

“Small place with good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2012

Stopped in for lunch last week. Sizeable blackboard menu with eclectic selections ranging from breakfast through lunch; sandwiches, soups, quiche of the day. Fresh-tasting ingredients. Counter orders delivered to your table when ready. Crowded spot with several small tables. They do have outdoor seating during summer, but not in January. Quiche of the day was a nice tomato, mushroom with a good crust accompanied by a small side salad lightly dressed. Really enjoyed my meal. Took home a decadent chocolate ganache cupcake for later ~ yummy! Tempting baked goods selection. Bought an apple/cranberry pie a day later to bring to dinner at my son's house & everyone enjoyed it very much. Enjoy visiting this restaurant and look forward to seeing them in larger quarters soon (I hope). Visit about 3-4 times a year.
