I'm my opinion this is the best place for perfect artisan baked goods. Accommodating to small business for custom orders and the best local coffee. Not to mention excellent service every time.

this is a wonderful little neighbourhood bakery with amazing selection of breads - love their unique flavours. Love their sourdough or the olive bread. Having a thinner slice available would be nice.

Better to buy real fresh baked treats here than to buy at the chains like Cobb's, or worse yet trucked in bread. Bodhi's breads are high quality and wholesome. Great pastries and cinnamon rolls.
