Unassuming little bakery tucked away on a side road. Open M,W,F (closed during lunch hour). Not a huge selection, but has your basic bread needs/varieties. We had the baguette, and the coconut and almond muffins (which are dairy-free). All delicious and very well priced. We...More

Not actually a restaurant, but don't we wish! Compesino bread, Butter bread, Bran bread, Muffins - all scrumptous. Only open on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, and don't arrive before noon either! Franz will not release any delicacies until they are adequately cooled. Savvy bread lovers...More

I wait all year round for Frank's bread! Every possible type of bread you get from Frank is always incredible and I crave it for 11 months of the year. Once I get to the "bakery" I eat an entire baguette myself before we can...More
