Bread Shop
1708 Lena Street
A marvelous tiny local bakery specializing in sour dough breads, found in the hip, industrial-look Lena Street Lofts area. Their flour comes from small grain growers in the western U.S. using organic farming practices. Order ahead, or just drop by the order window. We adore the cherry poppy bread and green olive & preserved lemon focaccia bread!
