Our bread

We make our bread fresh daily at our wholesale bakery in the heart of the West Side, where our sourdough culture has been thriving since 2014. We're proud to feature regional grain, local produce, and artisan techniques in our bread production. All of our bread, bagels and pretzels are leavened at least partially with sourdough (aka wild yeast or levain) and the majority, with the exception of our miche, are long ferment as well. All are shaped by hand around a big table surrounded by a team that cares as much about each other's wellbeing as the quality of the bread – and we care about both a lot.

Bread is available fresh at our cafe starting at 10am each morning! If you’re looking for a specific loaf, feel free to call & have us set one aside for you.

If you're interested in bread baking, we can recommend a few resources for getting started! First, pass the point of no return by making Jim Lahey's legendary No Knead Bread. Known as the bible for bread, Bread by Jeffrey Hamelman is a complete resource for anyone interested in expanding their understanding of how bread works, plus rock solid formulas (and he is super nice.) The Handmade Loaf by Dan Lepard is full of funky Euro recipes using a very cool technique – it includes the inspiration for our pickle brine rye – plus the most mouthwatering photography of any bread book ever. If you're looking for one highly-involved levain method that if followed meticulously will yield the best loaf ever baked at your house, turn to Chad Robertson's Tartine Bread.

And yes, we share our sourdough starter. Just give us a call & bring a clean jar, we will set you up!! Our mother culture is about to turn 10 years old and has been thriving on West Side Buffalo wild yeast since before we opened. We love baking with it and you just might too.
