Eat Good Bread.

Bread is at the heart of every good meal. All of our bread is 100% sourdough based, using a 24 hour fermenting process. While our offerings can fluctuate slightly week-to-week and seasonally, and every item is subject to availability, this is what is currently on the menu.

Not Just bread

Our pastries are lovingly hand made from scratch using all butter as well as our own house made creams and fillings. It's always worth stopping by to see if any of our bakers have created a unique one-off treat that day-- each member of our team is as creative as they are skilled, and there are often new projects on the go.
