We are completely dedicated to having fun, baking amazingly delicious bread, making you feel warm and welcomed, and having you feel nurtured when you are here. We keep our menus simple in choice, but deep in flavor and character. Our space is a big renovated garage in downtown Burlington; bright and warm in the winter, and breezy and open in the summer. The open space lets you see the bakers in action, creating our European style breads and pastries.
