This is a lovely French bakery in town. He makes large baguettes for $3.50 and the largest loaves of bread I’ve ever seen for $4.00. He makes rolls by request. When the bread is gone, he is closed. He’s a Frenchman making French bread in mid-Maine.

The best bread around. Just like a European bakery, because the baker is in fact European. We are so lucky to have him! Just make sure that you go early, because he often sells out.

This baker makes wonderful bread. I can never get home with a whole loaf intact. You will not be disappointed by a visit to this small, unassuming bakery. In the city, these loves would easily be twice as much money. He is a bread guru.

Very friendly and gracious owner and staff greet you. They just sell bread and what bread it is. Originally from New York and having visited France and Italy I can say this is as good or even better than any I have ever had. My wife agrees. I am partial to baguettes but my wife likes the generously sized loaf which is also great. We have had white and wheat.Both are excellent. This baker is truly a master and the bakery is wonder. Come early or reserve ahead of time.

This really is the best, crusty bread in the world. It is strictly a bread bakery. Go early, grab a loaf to go (there’s no seating), pick up some meat, cheese and other picnic fixings at a store in town and find a park on a nice day for a great picnic.
